Arizona State University | Arizona, United States | Advancing SDG 3 & UNAI 6
" I am very honored to have been given an opportunity to work with a cohort of students that believe in similar goals as I do. My personal philosophy is to give back to others and volunteer my time to those who need it. Project C.U.R.E. already gives me this opportunity but being a Millennium Fellow will allow me to expand my philosophy outside my boundaries. There has never been a day where I would deny my services to anyone in need of aid, and I always devote my time to the community. I strongly believe in working with others to achieve a common goal and I know that the skills and knowledge I bring not only as an individual but as a team member will not only bring me satisfaction as a volunteer but will also make me a valuable team member as well. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project C.U.R.E.
Project C.U.R.E. has continued to ship medical supplies to undermined countries. Their mission is to be able to help close resource gaps in developing countries by enabling doctors with the tools needed to treat patients. As of now, there are limited locations of Project C.U.R.E. in the United States. As a Millenium Fellow, Navneet hopes to be able to expand Project C.U.R.E. and their goals across America as well as be able to send more supplies to those in need.
