" I am delighted to be part of the Millennium Fellowship Programme as this creates an avenue for me to actually put my passion into action. I am very passionate about empowering the girl child and fighting against gender inequality in the society. I am glad to also have peers here who are trying to make positive impacts in various fields so that we can live in better world. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: She Matters
She matters would be a project centred on educating girls about their rights against sexual harassment and intimidation that happens in schools. The girls would be enlightened about various forms of sexual harassment and the ways to go about reporting the cases. These cases would be transferred to NGOS that readily handle such cases which I have been able to identify. There would also be a blog where stories of willing victims would be posted so that other girls can learn from their stories. The girls would be allowed to allowed to contact any member of She matters or their parents in order to report their cases. There would also be an email account for that purpose as well after which further communication mode would be decided on. The project aims to inform girls they can be anything and do anything ,aspire for positions without fear of being sexually harassed, go to school and learn without any form of discrimination.
