" I am very excited to be a Millennium Fellow as it provides me with an opportunity to generate a positive impact in the society and make this world a better place by working along with my peers and others in the community. I have always voiced concerns for the gender gap and inequality prevalent in the society, and with a firm believe that the seeds of discrimination are sown at a very young age, it is a platform for me to eradicate this problem and uproot gender inequality in the system to give birth to respect and equality for all genders in the minds of young children. I have made a commitment that I shall leave no stone unturned to bring about a visible change. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Samatva
Samavat aims at inculcating gender sensitisation right from primary/elementary school level in order to change the age old conventions of gender roles, and shall work on the lines of gender sensitisation. The program aims to impact at least 15-20 schools in and around Delhi. Inviting psychologists or counselors to deliver their understanding about the gender roles is another milestone.
