ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2018
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2018, students applied to join the Class of 2018 on 285 campuses across 57 nations. 30 campuses worldwide (just 11%) were selected to host the 530 Millennium Fellows in the global pilot this year.
The Class of 2018 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 310,000 people worldwide this year.
"I am excited to bring more awareness to this cause and help as many people as we can"
Millennium Fellowship Project
MEDLIFE Concordia seeks to mitigate poverty in marginalized rural areas and ensure global sustainability and human rights by providing citizens with the appropriate medicinal, educational, and developmental care. For the duration of the Fellowship, the organization would like to carry out a new initiative which seeks to support children with mental disabilities. They have a set goal of raising $5000 which will be donated to a local organization of our choice such as Bell Let's Talk, a NPO, which is Canada's largest initiative dedicated to de-stigmatize mental health. Throughout the span of these four months, they will carry out at least eight fundraising events, with at least two designated at a larger scale. These events will help measure their progress in successfully reaching our goal.
About the Millennium Fellow
Davindra Singh is completing his last year in Biology. In the future, he hopes to continue to a master degree in Biotechnology. He enjoys reading books, painting, and dancing. He believes that mental health is something that is overlooked in his community due to the fact that it is considered as a taboo. Therefore, by making a small difference as being part of this project, he hopes to change this mentality and help those who are in need of help.
