Millman Foundation

Unverified non-profit organisation

MILLMAN FOUNDATION is a youth-led organization established in Africa since 2017 to increase the number of students in African communities actively participating in local and national elections; and to promote the African culture, African indigenous education, civic engagement, talents, good governance, leadership, better policymaking, justice, science and technology in these African communities. This is to mitigate the high rate of unemployment, poverty, injustice, insecurity, violent extremism, poor leadership and poor quality education in African communities. Then, provide an enabling environment for them to effectively reach back and empower their communities.

Most students in African communities are fed up with the poor leadership and bad governance experienced every now and then in their communities. They actually see no need to participate in local and national elections or in nation building due to gross election malpractices, corruption, tribalism, embezzlement of public funds and the widening gap between them and the government. This and many more have caused the increasing high rate of unemployment, poverty and unqualified graduates in Cameroon and other African communities. This really discourages many students to take their studies serious. Hence, they get involved in drug abuse, gangs, violence, alcoholism, prostitution, illegal immigration, cheating and all sorts of get rich quick schemes just to survive and feel amongst peers. We have lost several childhood friends to the cold hands of death due to jungle justice as a result of theft; mysterious death due to cultism and get rich quick schemes; unjustified deaths due to insecurity and injustice; alarming disappearance and death of our brothers and sisters in the high seas and desert due to adventurous illegal immigration in search of greener pastures; and the continuous sexual exploitation and underpayment of young people for available jobs.

Nevertheless, realizing that Education, Schooling, Technology, Traveling and Culture are potential avenues for Emancipation, Creativity, Innovation, Leadership, Active Civic Engagement, Living Together and establishing Sustainable Networking Platforms; we vowed to be properly educated, connected and influential so as to reach back and raise the next generation of leaders for the greater good of our African communities. For these reasons, in secondary schools in African communities, we are organizing student government elections, training these elected student leaders and providing for them and other students full or partial scholarships to optimize these opportunities through our established ROTO HUB program and other ROTO programs run.

In order to promote peace, free and fair elections, democracy, good governance and active civic engagement in African communities, we are engaging students, teachers and school administrators in secondary schools to actively participate in their school student government elections either as candidates, voters, electoral committee members or whistleblowers. This is to ensure that the elections are free and fair; the elected student leaders are true representatives of that school community and they shall serve for the interests of that school. Also, this facilitates these student leaders to work in close collaboration with their teachers, school administrators and students so as to bridge any existing gap between them. Finally, this is to instill in students, teachers and school administrators sufficient confidence to participate in their local and national elections either as voters, candidates, whistleblowers or electoral committee members.

Once these student leaders are elected, they automatically constitute the ROTO HUB of that school. Through this ROTO HUB, these elected student leaders are trained in leadership, good governance, policymaking and active civic engagement so that they are fully equipped with sufficient leadership prowess throughout their mandate and beyond. Also, through the ROTO HUB, these student leaders are exposed to other local, national and international leadership opportunities so as to catapult their leadership explorations.

Within a period of 5 years upon establishment of our ROTO programs in a school or community, we intend to have developed a solution-base framework and policies that solves or mitigates pressing contemporary challenges faced by that school or community. This sets an enabling environment which fosters excellence, Africa cultural appreciation, leadership, sportsmanship, creativity, innovation, networking and technology.

Apart from the ROTO Hub program, we have other ROTO programs we run/will run in secondary schools and African communities such as:

ROTO Sports which involves the entire student community of our partner schools to participate in interclass and interschool competitions in volleyball, basketball, handball, football and athletics to promote sportsmanship, talents exposure and more networking amongst these students.

Poverty, illiteracy, hunger, bad governance, poor leadership, hard government policies and nonchalant civic engagement are inexorable barriers to nation building. Consequentially, these promote corruption, survival of the fittest and nonchalant participation of citizens in elections. Therefore, empowering these students as we do, positively contributes to nation building and greatly promotes democracy, peace, good governance, leadership, policymaking and active civic engagement.
