" Privilege is something that many of us are born with so it becomes our duty as human beings to share this privilege with the other half and try to elevate society as a whole. With this Millennium Fellowship, I will meet like-minded students and get a platform through which I can reach out to more and more people and try to achieve a sustainable development goal. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project R.I.S.E.
Project R.I.S.E. (Raising awareness. Imparting knowledge. Serving society. Educating people) is an initiative taken by a group of 8 Millennium Fellows of 2021 from Amity University Mumbai. We are working towards SDG 4: Quality Education and UN Academic Impact Principle #3 Education for All. Unlike traditional education, our team believes in holistic education where all types of needs of a person are catered to. This contributes to the overall development of a student and helps them grow mentally, physically, and socially. Our team had envisioned a few projects for the period of September to November 2021, that we believe have the potential to create a small, but the meaningful impact in the lives of the people we serve. This includes a donation drive, a series of educational webinars with emphasis on vocational training, and the publishing of an E-Book which will cover information and articles on all necessary topics that our project intends to spread awareness about.
