" I am an individual driven by a purpose in life. A purpose to serve beyond myself. I wish to stimulate mind by being exposed to different realities of the world. By being a Millennium Fellow, I will have an opportunity to enhance these skills and work for a greater cause. The skills that I take from this internship will further help me in my professional field of psychology and will provide me with a new lens to look at the world. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Raahat
The project is based on a psychosocial model to enhance skill development and education among the marginalised section of the society. Psycho-social well-being is a catch-all term that encompasses both psychological and social dimensions of life. This broad domain of welfare is typically correlated with traditional poverty measures – the economic poor also often exhibit low levels of psycho-social health and functioning. The model can be used to alleviate poverty. The goal of the project has been to promote skill development, access to social services and occupational training through social workers and by building a community which could be inclusive of a folk element so that the population feels connected. The aim of the project has been to target the underprivileged population in the remote areas. The motivating idea behind the program is to instil confidence and build the necessary social tools so the indigent poor can access existing social services and seek employment programs and occupational training. A focused concrete program has been crafted in collaboration with the experts and put in place. The project will continue to work around creating modules and structured strategies so that the program reaches the mass and is efficiently utilised
