" With a defined purpose and dream stated, the walk to excellence and success should not be discouraging as it is the path to fulfillment. I'm doing this after considering every other factors and have come to the conclusion that I have a role to play in bringing about sustainable developments and ultimately building a sustainable community for my world. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Share And Sow
Project Share And Sow (PSAS) is a campaign/awareness project based on the Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4; Quality Education). This project largely focused on bringing awareness to the student community on the responsibilities that follows acquiring quality education.
With the many issues facing humanity right now, it could only be concluded that everyone and all hands are needed on-board to face these threats together in one quick and decisive counter, to make it clear that the vision of a better world is actually not a dream but a clear and resounding reality.
However, the promises and joy of achieving a better world through our collective actions in ending humanitarian issues and needs is shortly cut short and further exacerbated due to the fact that only a few people are working towards achieving this goal, while others still lives each day absolutely oblivious to the reality of our state.
In order to correct this wrong, Project Share And Sow uses different platforms and mediums to reach out to the students, for everyone to become aware of the happenings in our individual environment, and how each and every of our lives is connected to others just as in a circular ring.
The project was partitioned into 2 distinct yet dependent sections (The Sharing and The Sowing phase).
The Sharing phase is involved in an all-round awareness to the student community. The aim of this phase is to share information about sustainable developments and humanitarian issues and solutions to as many students as possible. The activities under this phase include the general campus campaign, online campaign and lecture theaters awareness.
The method of categorizing the phases (Sharing and Sowing) is based on the tendency of meeting the students again. The Sharing phase is focused on students and other minor groups, where the chances of meeting or gaining an audience with them again is slim or non-existent.
The Sowing phase is the second yet most in-depth phase of the project. This phase is focused mainly on students where there is a high chance of meeting the individuals again and the probability of gaining an audience with them is high. The activities under this umbrella includes the opening online campaign, Meet Me, SDGs Talk Time, and will also feature the up-coming webinar in December.
In summary, Project Share And Sow advocates for this reality, that there’s more to do after gaining quality education.
