" As mentioned in the movie Becoming Jane, I believe that "nothing destroys the spirit like poverty" and I am passionate to work towards eliminating poverty. The Fellowship will help me connect and work with individuals driven to achieve the same goal. It will also provide an opportunity to be part of a global network of individuals who comes from different backgrounds and brig different ideas to achieve the common goal. Localising the impact gained through a global perspective, under the guidance of experienced leaders in the field is the most exciting part for me. "
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.
