" I'm very excited for the Millennium Fellowship as I'll get to learn a lot of things from other people who'll have different ideologies. As an aspiring civil servant, I wanna learn as much as I can so I can do my part towards the betterment of this society. " Becoming a member of the Millennium Fellowship is not only an honor, but the opportunity of a lifetime. As a person who has always wanted to make positive impacts on people's lives and help anyone who needs it, this Fellowship was an ideal way for me to work with my community to make a difference for the better. Lending help to others is not something that should be done to receive recognition; what makes me excited to help is that someone else's life is going to improve. My goal from this experience is to work and learn from like-minded peers to make a positive change in people's lives. " "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project PEHL
PEHL (Promoting Education & Holistic Learning), the name says it all, neither huge nor that small, but an initiative to contribute in being a part of the global network of change makers. As Ron Lewis has rightly said “Ensuring quality education is one of the most important things we can do for our future generations”, so our project PEHL targets SDG 4, (QUALITY EDUCATION) ’ and UNAI principle 3 (EDUCATION FOR ALL). Quality education plays a vital role in everyone's daily life as it leads to innovation, higher levels of productivity, and increased human & economic growth. Holistic development centered around quality education is the need of the hour, so this project targets not just the reading & writing aspect of education, but also the spiritual well being, awareness of several social & environmental issues, and training of target population’s mind to think critically.
The COVID pandemic couldn’t stop us from achieving our goals, as we did many things in virtual as well as physical mode with all the necessary precautions to achieve our goals. It includes Collaboration with NGOs, Conducting online seminars and webinars with students, online events/meetings, book drives among underprivileged children, raising awareness of several social issues among rural women, and so on.
