" My style of working is always on in-depth analysis and solving granular problems one by one which will give the entire system a change. Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship will help me to enhance and refine these skills. This exercise will allow me to work towards my passion for transforming the education sector which aligns with the SDGs of the UN. I am excited for this opportunity as I think this is a big and important step in my journey of reaching the finishing line which will bring about a change in schools of India. "
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.
