" Change is a vision dreamt by many but pursued by few. It does require time but more than that it requires someone to challenge the existing norms. Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship willl bring me a step closer to realising this dream of bringing a change and contribute in my own way of making this world a better place. Its just the initial steps which require the most efforts. I am highly elated to collaborate with like-minded individuals in the journey of taking these initial steps and learn and grow in this community. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Raah

Project Raah is led by 7 of us from the campus which is aimed at upliftment of students from underprivileged groups and communities by teaching them and providing them the appropraite material to understand the nuances and important aspects of these topics. Some of them included, online safety and safe and unsafe touch. To have a complete understanding, two fellows also undertook training from an NGO, reached out to professionals to help us understand these topics better and also have further plans and ways to extend this project further.
