Indian Institute of Technology Madras | Chennai, India | Advancing SDG 4 & UNAI 3
" Passion, Creativity and Humility are the three pillars that drive my art and work. Partaking in the Millennium Fellowship Program will help in enhancing these skills collaboratively, while also providing a great opportunity to work alongside like-minded, driven individuals from different cultures and communities. Women’s Rights and Access to Healthcare are two fields I am particularly passionate about. I look forward to developing and implementing a project that positively impacts lives and makes the world a safer place for all. "
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.
