" Ignorance fuels disaster, and one of the cures of ignorance is experience and
sensitization. Being a Millennium Fellow will give me the platform and buttress my
stand in sensitizing people in my region about what is illusional and what is real. I hope
(and I'm sure) I'll gain a lot from the training I'll be receiving.
I really held the UN "education for all" SDG in high regards and education is the easiest
way one can be enlighten and it's hurt when something that could have been dealt
with in a simple way exacerbate because of ignorance. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Inform Our Communities
Project Inform Our Communities is a group project organized by 2022 Millennium Fellows of the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. This is a project that addresses the ignorance on healthy living amongst several people in the communities around us.
It has been observed that this ignorance has cost several people their lives and has increased the death rate amongst them. We aim to educate these people on the right ways of healthy living and encourage them to conform to life-preserving activities.
During the Millennium Fellowship period (August – December 2022), Project Inform Our Communities (I.O.C.) will host a minimum of 3 outreaches to these communities.
These outreaches will include general health talks, mental health talks, roundtable discussions, and open mics.
We, the team of Project Inform Our Communities– are aiming to reach about 1,000 people for this event and we believe this project will soon advance globally.
