Millennium Fellowship Project: TFS: The First Step
The First Step, aims to get in touch with women across all age groups and train them with basic skills. Education is a necessity and there’s a long way to go beyond the formal education we receive from institutions. The current pandemic has made us realise how getting out of this will become even more difficult for people from a lower socio-economic background. Women have always had a difficulty establishing their feet. This project aspires to reach out to them, train them over a period of 5 months, gift them skills that will go a long way.
