ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2018
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2018, students applied to join the Class of 2018 on 285 campuses across 57 nations. 30 campuses worldwide (just 11%) were selected to host the 530 Millennium Fellows in the global pilot this year.
The Class of 2018 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 310,000 people worldwide this year.
“Our Africa can be the Africa we crave for through Education
We can do it!”
Millennium Fellowship Project
Mentors Network is a student initiative with a mission to inspire and guide students from underprivileged and challenging backgrounds to unleash their full potential. This project is aimed at supporting and encouraging primary and secondary school students to develop more interest in education. They believe that education is what is needed to take Africa to where they want it to be. Within the period of September to November, we hope to get more students to join our network and incorporate more activities in our programs.
About the Millennium Fellow
Susan Dacosta is a 21 year old Gambian student. She is in her 3rd year of Mechanical Engineering at Ashesi University, Ghana. She is passionate about seeing Africa get to a stage where the youth will not fancy leaving their countries to seek for greener pastures in other continents. She believes that this can be achieved through education and the best place to start is with the younger ones because it will be easier to influence people while they are still young. This is why she joined the Mentors Network - to support this dream.
