" Being a Millennium Fellow will help me to hone my leadership skills to carry out a project of social impact. I believe it will open the doors to a new perspective of thought and action for me. The work that I will do, during the course of the Fellowship will motivate me to pursue my goals persistently, work harder and smarter, and remain humble and grounded. Moreover, I hope to learn a lot in the process. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Needs of the Special
NOTS stands for Needs of the Special, taken from the term “have-nots”, used to commonly refer to people below the poverty line. We are a passionate and motivated team of 6 second-year undergraduate students of the BS-MS dual degree course of IISER Tirupati, hailing from different parts of India. Our project focuses on making Quality education our prime objective along with the implementation of society, accepting and understanding the needs of children with special needs.
