" The language of knowledge can create space for tolerance. Access to quality education is a privilege and it is the responsibility of each student to do our bit in creating a space of acceptance and equality around one another. Millennium Fellowship is a great platform to brainstorm and connect with like minded people, who could contribute in my quest to help everyone receive quality education; one that enables each one to realize their individuality, abilities and capabilities for loving the world. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: HealthiHer.
HealthiHer is a project focused on curating information around menstrual health and the sexual health and well being of women by create an ebook that is approved and sourced in collaboration with NGOs and doctors in this field. The project also aims to curate webinars in order to give young women a platform where they can directly talk to relevant experts without the fear of any judgment and apprehensions. With almost no sex education offered to students in schools in India, HealthiHer is a step to provide an avenue for women to discuss important health related concerns that are often not talked about.
