" I am excited for Millennium Fellowship as I believe it would be a gateway to a strong community of innovative changemakers and access to unprecedented practical learnings. My goal is to let all children freely venture out for their dreams with the power of education. I firmly believe that it is the common people who can powerfully drive social amelioration at the very base. Hence, it is essential for every individual to respond to, what I call, their ISR- Individual Social Responsibility. I am responding to my call from within and it excites me very much to work on Project Green Light. Moreover, social service is something which keeps me positive, grounded, progressive and most importantly happy. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Green Light
Project Green Light is an effort to make a positive impact on the lives of children; who are forcefully made to beg on roads and at traffic lights so that they do not surrender their dreams and can access quality education. This initiative primarily seeks to reach out to such children and their families, in order to, talk to them and counsel them to get the child admitted to a school for gaining a quality education. The aims are:
- Helping at least 15 children get admitted to schools in the admission process for schools in the next year.
- Organising regular holistic development sessions for children.
- Reaching out to 500 people by the means of an awareness campaign and enlightening them about the cause of young children forced to beg.
- Organising at least 10 public talks and discussions about this issue with an aim to encourage students and professionals to come forward to make education accessible to children.
- Developing a strong partnership with district administration and civil bodies for support and assistance.
