" “The Millennium Fellowship is an opportunity of a lifetime, which will not only help me hone my leadership skills, but also help me find a community full of compatible peers who hold the same interests and values as I do. Standing up for equality, especially along the lines of gender and other intersections, has always formed a crucial part of my identity and I am thrilled and hopeful to use this platform to further explore the arena of social justice and contribute to the progress of society”.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Zivah
Project Zivah aims to work for the care and welfare of school and college students by recognising, reducing and challenging everyday sexism while promoting gender equality. It serves the students by providing awareness to empower them to challenge gender stereotypes in their everyday lives. Under it, the Millennium Fellows are working with community groups and collaborating with non-profit organisations of similar causes to improve the level of insight into gender sensitisation. Through our project we are targeting the overall lack of awareness around how sexism can impact mental health by providing awareness to teenagers and young adults. Our project strives to motivate students to identify what’s right and wrong, and work towards reducing injustice and inequalities.
About the Millennium Fellow
Sincere, perceptive, helpful and endowed with a good set of values, Anagha Srinivasan is a diligent student who holds a fervent passion for social impact. As a young woman from India, she holds strong opinions about several social issues such as inequality, discrimination, prejudice, and mental health, and aims to incite dialogue and discussion through her work. From spreading awareness on various mental disorders to questioning the internalised nature of bigotry based on caste, class, and gender, Anagha enthusiastically expresses her thoughts through writing. Anagha constantly seeks out opportunities to convert her ideas into action, and hence, has been involved in several initiatives that focus on bringing about a positive change in society. She has been an active volunteer of the National Service Scheme unit of Indraprastha College for Women and has worked on projects that are directed towards making knowledge about mental health more accessible. Desirous of absorbing each moment, Anagha also bears interest in singing, playing instruments, travelling, and learning new languages.
