" If I have the opportunity to impact even one person's life in a positive way, I'd take it. Here, I am being provided that opportunity with much needed guidance and support. Meeting like-minded people and innovating new ways, we can make our world more hospitable and accommodating. This is why I am excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship. We all need to grow together, or we as people won't grow at all. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Mindfulness With Joy
Mindfulness with Joy is a pertinent example of how inequalities can be reduced and inclusiveness can be brought in, in society. The project from its inception aims to engage children and adults with special needs in various activities which will not only promote their overall development but also help spread joy. It aims to improve overall social awareness about specially abled persons. We also aim to help children with disabilities feel equal and feel capable of doing the things that those without physical disabilities do.
