" Millennium Fellowship is a prestigious and honoured programme which would help me in my project greatly and would give it a kick start and I will be able to reach out to a large number of people through this programme. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I have been working towards achieving the 'Zero Hunger' and 'Education for all' sustainable development goals and it can only be possible through this fellowship. The smile and the innocence in their eyes at the sight of food and knowledge is what drives me in my work. I am empathetic towards things which makes a difference in this world. Empathetic and humble are the values that applies to my leadership as the project itself suggests the reason. We work to get get surplus food from the restaurants and communities and give it to less fortunate. We also impart knowledge and education for their better and bright future. "
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."
