" Uphold newish notions of youths within concerned sphere can hasten the prosperity. I have found Millennium Fellowship as a felicitous field to polish my project about "Transgender Socialization" and relate it with SDGs. As a youth, I'm also enchanted to engage myself with various emphatic minds for clarifying my point of views. "

"Socialize Transgenders" is a subordinate project of a non-governmental organization named "Better Future Bangladesh", where we the two fellows Md. Nafhsin Mabud Efti and Tanaya Nath are working as the proudest volunteers of this organization for the trans-gender people to mainstream them in society. This project aims to dispelling social stigma towards third genders and normalize their life. In civil society, transgenders are awfully ignorant and deprived of maintaining standard livelihood. That's why the project targets to bring them in civil society by celebrating festivals with them, finding out favourable workplace, managing better household etc. Though, due to pandemic, some process are going mildly.
