" Becoming a Millennium Fellow will help me to strengthen my leadership abilities, provide me with a platform that encourages adopting an action-oriented approach and allow me to interact and collaborate with like-minded individuals who are focused in wanting to bring about change. Given that the fellowship emphasises experiential learning, I will get to understand the SDG, UN and UNAI goals and be actually able to make that into a reality in the spaces around me. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: TRUST
Project TRUST is a group project which acts as an umbrella acronym and incorporates multiple sub-projects aimed at producing a positive impact in our community. The sub-projects are Teach to Reach, Rooh, Udaan, Swachh and Thrift-Conscious.
Teach to Reach works towards encouraging curiosity among young minds by exploring topics such as soft skills, child abuse, menstruation and financial literacy.
Rooh is dedicated to raising awareness about mental health and well-being.
Udaan focuses on women-centric socio-cultural issues in India to disseminate information on the safety, physical and emotional well-being of a woman.
Swachh targets plastic and food waste management and open garbage management. It truly believes that one person's trash is another's treasure.
Finally, Thrift-Conscious aims to merge the worlds of fashion and environmental awareness through sustainable options like thrifting."
