" I began ventilating my opinions on patriarchy on social media and as usual received an abundance of criticisms but deep down all I wanted was to awaken at least one lost man's mind. Millennium Fellowship puts forth a purposeful journey to unite equalists all around the globe in creating a planet, where consent, acceptance, self-love takes priority. Leadership skills and connections associated with Millennium Fellowship give hope to revolve my fairy tales into the revolution. "
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."
