Millennium Fellowship Project: Break free from the stereotype

Breaking the stereotype placed on gender bias and education. Creating a platform where men and women, especially youths are educated on the right approach to achieving quality education and gender equality. In order to achieve equality, it is important to deal with the root causes and tackle the problem primarily. If individuals are properly educated and enlightened about such topics, the problems will be reduced to the barest minimun.
