Millennium Fellowship Project: Empathy for U
My project connects the lack of empathy to the humanitarian crises we see around the world today and aims to teach empathy-skills to young students. The project also aims to raise awareness of these crises in the young generation. My project focuses on raising awareness of the Uyghur internment camps and the ongoing religious persecution of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang within my community.
