" Millenium Fellowship is a platform for young leaders to showcase their innovative ideas to achieve Sustainable Development Goals provided by the UN. I couldn't wait to join alongside young leaders and give my ideas for a better world. Millenium would help me to learn and helping the society for a better cause is the best thing we can do. As the young generation of our nation we have the responsibility to make this world a better place to live. Creating a platform in which everyone is treated equally and getting the basic needs in the need of the hour. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Taabir
Project Taabir aims to provide quality food to unprivilegied people. The measure adopted to make this dream a success is to collect extra food from various food delivering companies and deliver them to the people who are in much more need. In India, many people sleep without food. The plight of these people is much worse, providing them the basic needs such as food will bring a smile to their faces. Small children suffer from malnutrition because of lack of nutritious food. We can together build a better place by accomplishing zero hunger. The aim would be to reach the undeveloped areas where people do menial jobs to make a living. We can't sleep even one night without food. Imagining these people going days without food is the worst condition possible. They are our people and providing the best for them is in our hands.
