" I have always been passionate about social development. Belonging to a rural background which lacked basic amenities like electricity and education I have felt how lack of facilities can crumple the potential a person possess. And that's why I have always been actively working to create every small change that I can be part of whether it be educating children or strengthing infrastructure and facilities.
With the network of Millennium fellows I believe I can be part of community of world leaders of change and learn mutually from each other. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Future Project
We as a team are working on the project to include 21st century skills in the school curriculum of government skills. Skills like leadership, soft skills are equally important to kids in life which our curriculum doesn't really incorporate. Through peer teaching it helps kids to make learning a lot better with these skills.
