" Growth is the reason for the change in the human mind. My journey as a Millennium Fellow will allow me to better experience my own growth as a leader and a changemaker. With this in mind, I would love to spread whatever I learn to whoever needs it, so we can create more changemakers for a world that requires it the most. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Agápe
Agápe works towards creating awareness of textile waste polluting the environment. We plan on converting textile waste into fashion statements through the method of upcycling by collecting textile waste directly from landfills and garments factories. Being a country that has the largest garments industry, Bangladesh is producing the most textile waste which is harming the ocean with micro plastics, and also the production of fast fashion creates a scarcity of pure water. We also plan to give a playform for rural and urban artisans to promote their slow fashion agenda to our audience.
