Millennium Fellowship Project: Safe and Secure communities
This project is aimed at creating a safe environment for students to study and carry out all other non curricular activities in the campus environment. People generally tend to be be very productive when they know that they are safe. This project is meant to firstly create an awareness for students who are also interested in the safety of others and are ready to volunteer, then an online community for flow of information concerning safety and the program generally is created. The volunteering individuals make it their optimum assignment to act on every information they get on the online platform and from every other means. Every department on campus will have a volunteer anonymous to the general public for the security of the volunteer also. Then there would be officers that would be in charge of the volunteers. These volunteers will work with other organisations in the school concerned with security, health and every other organisation concerned with the safety of students and every other individual on campus. This project aims to reduce vices, suicides, assaults and accidents to its barest minimum.
