“I am really excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it will give me the opportunity to realise my dream and strive to cause an impact in the lives of millions of people. It will also help in my personal development.”

Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Noor

Project NOOR works for the upliftment of marginalized people through education, economic and social empowerment. Our team reaches out to two adopted slum areas to conduct regular classes with children and adults. We believe in the broader meaning of education beyond literacy. So, we conduct regular workshops on fields revolving around issues like child sex abuse, domestic violence, menstrual hygiene, etc in collaboration with other not for profit organizations.

Another segment of the project works with women who were earlier involved in manual scavenging. We strive to empower these women by marketing products made by them. We ensure their sustainable development by providing them exposure to markets, customers, etc.

This year we aim to impact at least 80 families by our actions. We aspire to increase the reach of our project vertically, by putting more focus on individual needs.

“I want to explore many ways by which I can expand my project. The reason why I am doing this is I saw many women in slum areas near my place who wanted to do something for their family and are very curious and willing to do work but are not allowed to go outside for work. So by this they are able to do something from their home and will gain confidence in their life. And this makes me a bit happy that someone is happy because of me.”

“Gandhi once said, ‘Be the change you want to see’. Being a Millennium Fellow gives me an opportunity to work towards the betterment of the society and build a more inclusive environment.”

Millennium Fellowship Project: Men Can Cry

Depression in men is commonly not recognized because men are supposed to be strong. In Indian Culture and any culture in the world, expression of any emotion or feeling is a feminine trait. ‘Men Can Cry’ is developed to explain how masculine practices to depression result in a debilitating trajectory.
A further suggestion is that ‘health more generally is also seen as a feminine issue, which means that these issues are not limited to emotional health.’

The short term goals are to identify the factors which lead to depression in men and then create awareness regarding the recognition of depression in men.

The long term goal is to build a stigma-free environment where men feel comfortable and not weak about their emotions. It works on this initiative, to break masculine stereotypes, channel depression in a non-aggressive way and promote a support group for men with depression.

About the Millennium Fellow

Saumya Rastogi is a final year student in Indraprastha College for Women, University of Delhi. where she studies Multimedia and Mass Communication. She is part of the Editorial and Debating Society over there.
She is a passionate blogger and is social media savvy and believes the platform can bring a real change in how we interpret Mental Health.

Researching in Development Communication around Mental Health, she aims to break the taboos surrounding depression in men.

“Because it is a very good platform for learning ,it provides us so many experiences which helps us to deal with the community because here we are working globally. In this process we share our achievements and failures which helps us to learn a lot .Here we all are young people with creative minds .I am so excited for this.”

Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Noor

Project NOOR works for the upliftment of marginalized people through education, economic and social empowerment. Our team reaches out to two adopted slum areas to conduct regular classes with children and adults. We believe in the broader meaning of education beyond literacy. So, we conduct regular workshops on fields revolving around issues like child sex abuse, domestic violence, menstrual hygiene, etc in collaboration with other not for profit organizations.

Another segment of the project works with women who were earlier involved in manual scavenging. We strive to empower these women by marketing products made by them. We ensure their sustainable development by providing them exposure to markets, customers, etc.

This year we aim to impact at least 80 families by our actions. We aspire to increase the reach of our project vertically, by putting more focus on individual needs.
