“To be part of a group all aiming for the same priorities. I look to continue my passion and encourage others to get involved. “
Millennium Fellowship Project
Freedom in education aims to give a freedom pack to girls aged 10 and to provide them with provisions and information on menstrual periods. I am using UV technology and reusable materials to give each girl a pack that can be their own. At present many women reuse rags throughout the female embers of their family- this causes cervical cancer and early death. Our main goal is to involve Western Sydney University and a nearby high school in my innovation to keep Indian girls in education upon reaching puberty.
