" I firmly believe that we should wake up every day to become a better person, no matter how small the change. The Millennium Fellowship will be the perfect opportunity for me to achieve this. Working towards bringing social impact in others' lives will help me grow personally and be more mindful and empathetic of my community. Sharing powerful ideas and thoughts with like-minded fellows doing exceptional work in their respective communities will help me re-assess my personal social impact goals. More importantly, I believe that the principles and values that this fellowship brings will stick with me in the future. It will help me bring in an angle of social impact no matter what I decide to work on in the future. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Bibliotèach
Project Bibliotèach was conceived in June 2021 to proliferate the benefits of education across students in India. We realised the need for practical education that targeted underprivileged students. These students may or may not have had access to formal education, but regardless of their current educational status, we encourage them to think beyond the limits of rote learning. What started as an idea between some students soon transformed into a full-fledged project, Bibliotéach. We aim to advance SDG 4 (Quality education) and UNAI (United Nations Academic Impact Principles) 2 - Capacity building.
