" I am excited to be a part of Millennium Fellowship because it provides me with a platform to interact with a diverse group of leaders and changemakers. I am enthusiastic to engage with the other fellows to discuss advances and challenges in our social impact journeys. For my vision of a more equitable future, we have to start within the household. I hope to stir the gendered-work dynamic in households through my initiative. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Saksham: More power to her
Care work and child-rearing often come with the cost of our mothers forgoing their professional lives and goals. This is the story of most women in India, who fall prey to circumstances of the household and get detached from their skills after marriage. Project Saksham will focus on stay-at-home mothers, who have for some reason or the other lost touch with who they are. Interested women will be registered and will be segregated based on their educational qualifications and interests. They will be exposed to various courses which either bring them up-to-date with their field of education or skill them appropriately for "Work from Home" jobs. The impact on the lives of women will be documented in terms of the skills they gain and how they make use of it. This will be showcased through an online story-telling campaign that highlights the burden of care-work and the success stories of these women, reaching 1000 followers or more on Instagram.
