" I want to be a Millennium fellow because this fellowship will give me a platform to realise my dream of doing a project that will positively impact the society and will take my social impact to the next level. It will also give me access to world class training, connections, and recognition. It will also make the United Nations sustainability development goals a reality in our community. It will also give me the chance to work with like minded individuals who are passionate about changing the world and we would develop a plan of action for our sessions together, meet to exchange best practices.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Lets Conquer Hunger
Project aim is to serve hungry citizens by establishing a connection between food service providers ( restaurants, hotels, caterers etc.) and less fortunate people. The lesser fortunate sections of society that the project want to serve include homeless families, orphanages, patients from public hospitals, and old age homes. Idea is to beat global hunger and bring out the best of humanity using food as a medium. Basic strategy is to reallocate excess or surplus food that is of no use to food service provider to needy people. Main view is collect surplus food and then serve hungry people. And strengthening public distribution system.
