" It is an absolute honour to be a Millennium Fellow. I believe it is a wonderful learning platform where student leaders from different countries, backgrounds and communities can inspire one another to come up with effective solutions through mutual exchange of ideas. I cannot wait to work with the other Fellows and come up with comprehensive strategies to create some kind of positive social impact. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Noor
Project Noor is all about imparting quality education to underprivileged children. They not only focus on academic learning but also inculcate moral values in the children of their communities. The Fellows have recently started focusing on adult literacy as well. The volunteers from campus go to field visits every alternative day for two hours wherein the children are taught in open areas. But due to the pandemic, they are shifting their focus on virtual platforms where they will be sharing YouTube lectures with the children and the team will be in constant touch with them through Whatsapp groups. The Fellows will be positively impacting 450 lives in this duration. They will be trying their utmost best to impart quality education even in the midst of a pandemic.
