" The Millennium Fellowship is a great opportunity for me to work for a good cause. I believe that education is the best opportunity to elevate oneself from the social and economic conditions and so, I wish to empower children to pursue education in a way that learning becomes creative and holistic. I am committed to ensure that quality education becomes accessible to the underprivileged. I am excited to be a part of this and look forward to put my skills into practice. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Beyond Textbooks: Education Matters
Beyond Textbooks is focused on advancing SDG 4 and 5 (Quality Education and Gender Equality). Our aim is to inculcate comprehensive teaching, conceptual understanding and constructive learning.
By encouraging creativity and participation, we hope to create a responsive environment. Introducing them to various life skills will remain our major focus throughout the project.
Via online platforms, we will be connecting with children of all genders from underprivileged backgrounds and will be organizing engaging lessons and creative workshops for them.
