" Research and physical engagement are keys to any developmental project. While I primarily engage in research, I hope to translate my research into physical developmental engagements with the community via platform of Millennium Fellowship. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Aashiyana: Creating Safe Households for Women
‘Aashiyana: Creating Safe Households for Women’ addresses the issue of domestic violence against women in rural India, which is seen as too normal that nobody even questions it, owing to the persistent gender inequality and patriarchal system. The project is primarily serving as a wake-up call for the women to voice themselves against the violence they face at their home which they build with love and affection. The project is contributing towards the accomplishment of sustainable development goal 5 which addresses gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. Targeting the elimination of violence against women is essential in achieving gender equality and women empowerment and thus sustainable development.
