" What excites me about the Millennium Fellowship is that it will enable me to make a tangible impact in the lives of people at the ground level. I want to interact with people, understand their hardships and provide them with a solution that will genuinely help them in their lives. I want to create a change that the community understands, sustains and practices in their daily life and the skills I gain from the Millennium Fellowship will allow me to do just that. "
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.
