You can't make him stop being afraid. You have to respect his space and give him as much freedom as possible. Don't put you hand in and try to touch him. He will come to you when he is ready.

The basic recipe for this situation is to sit and talk and quietly sing to the bird from outside of its cage while offering an occasional treat such as a few bites of a sprig of millet. This can help to calm and reassure the bird that you will not hurt it. It also allows the bird the chance to get accustomed to you and for you to get to know the bird.
