" The Millennium Fellowship will allow me to push my limits and apply my knowledge of Psychology, Sociology and Economics to positively impact the lives of underprivileged people. It is a platform that will highlight the struggles of people and work on interventions that will help us address the same. Through this fellowship, I hope to give back to society and bring about positive change that will inspire others. "
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."
