“There are people who want to make a positive change in this world and this platform helps a person achieve their goals with proper guidance and support. I am honoured to be a Millennium Fellow as this experience and opportunity would not only help me make a positive change and be useful in a society but also polish my skills and help me learn and grow.”
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:
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.
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.
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.
