" Millennium Fellowship gives me the motivation and guidance to go forth and work for the improvements I wish to see in the world around me. It gives me the opportunity to help children find a better future and inspire women to refine their present. I love this bonding with people having similar mindsets and aspirations to bring about crucial change in the society. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Nurture
The 'Nurture' Initiative aims to provide mother-child kits to provide antenatal care for mothers and to inculcate the importance of education and immunization for the child. The 'Nurture' initiative aims to provide mother and child kits which consists of books, sanitary napkins, the essential information in regional languages regarding immunization, and provide medicines. The Fellows want to empower women by intellectual education and help break down taboos that surround menstrual health for women. They aim to reach out to 10 villages and impact about 1000 lives or 200 families in these villages. They further aim to organize mentorship in orphanages and government schools to support underprivileged children's learning endeavours.
