" Your Positive Action combined with Positive Thinking results in Success. - Shiv Khera. God, Millennium Fellowship Authority, and my team have allowed me to think positively and have a positive outlook towards being a part of Millennium Development Goals. Now, along with my team, I would work on positive action by implementing the plan and contributing to society. This journey will be full of experiences working in a group, interacting with various change-makers, working on the ground level, and playing the responsibility of a leader, team member, friend, social worker, and representer. The journey will include many challenges and opportunities, but it is not just hard work but smart work and dedication that make people successful. So, along with positive action, I would look forward to learning the art of working smart, hard, and dedicated towards my aim. "
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.
