" This Fellowship provides the prospect of adopting creativity and flexibility in coming up with solutions that could possibly bring about social impact in a tangible manner and in alignment with various development goals, and I find this to be an exciting and rewarding opportunity for building my skills through hands-on learning and exploring novel and innovative ways of problem-solving.

Millennium Fellowship Project: ImpactHut Learning

ImpactHut Learning is a project addressing school students of Classes 6 to 12 in India, with the aim of inculcating 21st-century skill sets and mindsets in students for them to live a well-rounded and balanced life. This project works on various kinds of events with the vision of SDG 4: Quality Education and UNAI Principle 3 - Education for All. This project is important to the Millennium Fellows as due to the closure of schools and lockdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic, children have lost the utmost important opportunity to develop their personalities and skills. Another reading being the school education system focuses more on the academic side and misses out on the real-world skills.
