" I am so excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship for the class of 2020. I am honored to get selected as a fellow. Millennium Fellowship is a great opportunity to help me with my vision which is 'Education for all'. In India, more than 30% of people are uneducated 'excluding' children. Illiteracy is the main reason for most of the problem from rape to corruption which is happening in India or around the world. As Shantel Markera said, with education, no one in the world will go hungry. My goal is to eduacate underpriviledged students who cannot pay for education and make them available with free resources. I am particularly excited about the people I will meet who are around the globe working for their cause. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Quality education for all.
The Fellowship project is about 'Quality Education for all' or simply 'Education for all'. The Fellow is from a lower-middle-class family, who has seen the struggle of parents to educate their children from a very young age. As the world is progressing, education, rather say 'quality' education has became very expensive. This project will gather children from the community area and teach them MS-Excel or Word or any other thing in which they are interested in through the laptop.
