" Millennium Fellowship is a one of its kind initiative where likeminded people strive for the same yet different goals. I'm really looking forward to this Fellowship because it provides us with a platform to make a change in the community and work together and learn from each other. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Pratisandhi
Pratisandhi's aim is to equip people with basic knowledge regarding their sexual health and well being which they have been deprived of for long because of the taboo that exists in the society regarding sexual well being. Focusing on age appropriate content for various age groups, this initiative aims to disseminate information and knowledge reaching about 200+ students through virtually conducted online workshops and session, through which the target audience will be able to learn crucial information and also identify the red flags and problematic behaviour that they were unable to before due to the lack of requisite information. By the end of this project, we aim to make these students more aware and conscious about the things that they were kept in dark about and promote the propagation of this information further.
