" My goals and my work are defined by two things: my love for learning new things and my vision for a better future, for me and for the world. Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship will help me learn and develop essential personal skills, help other children learn new things and impact their lives with the joy of reading and learning. "
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.
