" Everyone in this world - regardless of gender, race, caste and creed - are human beings at the end of the day. Every life in this world starts and ends. But as long as that life exists in this world, we have to strive to make the world a happy place to live in. That is my guiding philosophy and I strongly believe that the Millennium Fellowship provides everyone with the perfect opportunity to make this world a better place. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Ivory Tower
Project Ivory Tower is a collaborative research society where members research on the Sustainable Development goals of the UN. Alongside our projects, we also aim to spread social awareness through our website and social media pages. We have undertook two research projects to analyze:
1) The concept of dignified and undignified occupations and their effect on mental health of the workers with special reference to the pandemic.
2) The influence of patriarchy on all the three genders i.e. men, women and the non-binary and how it affects the genders differently in the North/South regions of the country.
