" Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much. Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship, we will be doing our part in bringing about the great change that our world so desperately needs. The skills I gain from the Millennium Fellowship will make my social impact on projects and communities more tangible and aligned with the UNAI principles and SDGs. I'm thrilled and excited to begin working and increase my anticipatory competence by envisioning new ways of learning! "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Safe Haven
The Safe Haven aims to tackle the deep-rooted prejudices and biases in our Indian society. It started as a simple realization that acknowledgment is the first step towards solving any problem. Our project is advancing SDG 10: Reduced Inequality. Through local activism and our grassroots initiatives, we are engaging with people around us, talking about issues often surrounded by silence and stigma. In addition to this, we are also providing relief wherever possible to anyone and everyone afflicted by the socio-psychological unfairness of modern society. We have started three initiatives namely, Astitva, Shakti, and Humraah.
