Millennium Fellowship Project: STARLIGHT EMPOWERMENT

I starttted the project in July 2021 with the aim of motivating student from my local villlage and help them to understand the importance of education. My vission with the group is to uplift the valuable academic status in the community and reduce the number of school dropout. The drive for me starting the program is that I was a victim of dropping out of school, became a streetboy and later employed as a cowboy before my boss decided to taste my academically and he discovered I have the potential to do well. I recruted a number of youths with same idea and we visit schools both primary and secondary talking to them on academic, socio-economics and many other topics. I being a medical student, I help in mental issues too with the experience of having single parent too(only mom after dad walking away). The project is currently having 30 participants and we have visited 9 schooos and the feedback is usually amazing. I also have mentees that am closely looking after them. We are also meeting youths and children who are out of school to revive their dimming light. We also talk to parents concerning there role in child's life
