Millennium Fellowship Project: Street School

'Street School' aims to create and implement an education/schooling model for young children in the underprivileged slum areas. Street School is specifically targeting a slum area just beside NUST campus where displaced Afghan migrants are settled. Our goals for the duration of the Millennium Fellowship include:

  1. Designing a curriculum which will cater to different age groups. The curriculum will be customized according to the children’s previous exposure to schooling/education. We are hoping to focus on basic literacy including but not limited to mathematics, ethics, morals, interpersonal and soft skills.

  2. We are hoping to educate at least 5 students to the degree that they can join a grade of their respective age group in a functional school. To sponsor their education, we will be raising sufficient funds.

  3. To create a solid foundation/organization for the project so that even after our fellowship is completed, it can sustain itself through our's and volunteers' efforts; and expand its radius to other nearby slum areas.

“I am always interested in social work as it is a profession that historically produces agents of change who are not afraid to challenge antiquated policies, fight for social justice, and make the world a better place. The purpose of Youth for Human Rights International is to teach youth about human rights, specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and inspire them to become valuable advocates for tolerance and peace. Its importance is that it tells people that one cannot call a society a good and a just society until all its citizens enjoy these human rights.”

Millennium Fellowship Project: Gender Equality

I am planning to spread awareness on SDG-5 (Gender Equality) this August-November. I am planning to accomplish this task through different social media forums to make a change and improve the living standard of many deprived people. I hope that many people would be inspired and I would accomplish my goals due to my kindness, integrity, and diligence. I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow as I understand the importance of working towards and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals

“I believe women emancipation is inevitable in a milieu that guarantees their social inclusion, equity and capacity building. Being a part of Millennium Fellowship community, as a change agent, I vow to contribute for the creation of such a milieu.”

Millennium Fellowship Project: Darakshan

"Darakshan Project" aims at financial and social empowerment of women in slum areas of Islamabad through advocacy, marketing and two pronged skill based training. One component of the training aims at building vocational skills (e.g. cooking) while the other component is geared at teaching life skills (e.g. hygiene, basic reading and writing) to the underprivileged women dwelling in the slum areas. Phase-I of “Darakshan” project culminates at the completion of training phase whereby the trainers would ascertain the requisite level of skill acquired by the trainees. A fast track training for an additional week maybe arranged for those not meeting the benchmark.

At the onset of the phase-II, the women who had successfully completed the training and acquired the requisite skills would initially be provided resources for creating related products. "Darakshan" startup would subsequently market and sell the products made by these women through an online platform. The platform would also serve as an advocacy media for highlighting the issues confronted by the women dwelling in the slums and the efforts made by them in their pursuit for emancipation and serve as a medium to advocate gender equity.

"Darakshan" team aims to initially impart vocational training to 7-15 women. By the end of November, the Phase-I comprising of vocational training, as well as training in the life skills relevant to personal hygiene and cleanliness of home and surrounding slum area, will approach its completion.

“Being a Millennium Fellow gives me this excellent opportunity to empower young adults who have the potential to transform the economy and lifestyle of their respective communities. Having closely witnessed the consequences of over-saturated job market, I am eager to help more people opt for unconventional career paths that give them financial freedom, sustainability, work-life balance, and flexibility. Instead of looking for a dream job, why not make one for yourself and for many others like you?”

Millennium Fellowship Project: Recycled Road

Recycled Road is an initiative that aims to repurpose plastic waste to building roads. When building roads, the materials of construction required are concrete, sand and petroleum derived bitumen. In Pakistan, we have limited resources of workable plants of petroleum refinery from which bitumen can be extracted. So to compensate the needs, we are compelled to import bitumen product from various countries. By using solid plastic waste for this purpose, we will improve waste management and provide cost effective infrastructure development to cities, suburbs, rural areas, and slums. Throughout the Millennium Fellowship duration, our goals include:

  1. Patent our idea so we may make it commercial later and protect the integrity of our research

  2. Conduct clean up drives in slum area of Afghan residents to collect the raw material and prepare sample for our lab-scale pyrolysis.

  3. Make a prototype of bitumen that can be extracted from solid plastic and compare it with the actual bitumen used in road construction.

  4. Pitch our research work to potential sponsors and collaborators to gain sufficient funding for road construction in the chosen slum area.
