" Over the next few years I believe that it will become non-negotiable for organisations, governments and individuals to act sustainably. We have already seen various social movements become the focus of people globally, and through becoming a Millennium Fellow I am excited to enhance my role within these greater causes. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Hidden Initiative
The Hidden Initiative strives to spread awareness and understanding for those living with disabilities and mental and/or physical health conditions that aren’t apparent to the naked eye. By stimulating discussion and increasing the visibility of related support services, The Hidden Initiative aspires to minimise the stigma and feeling of shame felt by those with hidden conditions. The aim of our project is to raise funds for selected support organisations whilst engaging with the community to raise awareness, and we have successfully raised over $2,000 to date. We aim to develop a partnership with 2 new organisations that share our vision of The Hidden Initiative and raise $2,000 through several fundraising events and initiatives to support their operations and raise awareness. We also aim to increase our community engagement through our social media platforms by reaching a total of 3,000 engagements across the project's platforms collectively, achieved through the use of giveaways, promotional stalls and QR codes, as well as a newly developed marketing strategy. The project also intends to expand its Executive Committee to broaden and diversify the mix of skills and expertise that contribute to achieving set goals and community engagement.
