" My cause requires a lot of dedication and knowledge. Though I am already very determined, the Millennium Fellowship will help me achieve the dedication and required skills and experience needed for me to succeed in my goal. Being a part of the fellowship will not only help in sharpening my existing skills such as creativity and management skills, but will also help me develop new and essential skills which will help me go a long way in my goal. I am, thus, very excited to learn and be part of the Millennium Fellowship batch of 2021. "
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."
