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.
