" By being a part of the Millennium Fellowship I intend to make a long lasting impact and in doing so it will require creative planning and execution which will be enhanced while working on the Project taken by our team. Being a Millennium Fellow will also be beneficial for me on the academic front, in colleges and further endeavors. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Soch Vidhya Abhiyaan
Our project, “Soch Vidhya Abhiyaan” is chosen with a vision to achieve the SDG 4 which is Quality Education. We worked on providing education to children, teach them concepts using innovative ideas, make them aware of moral compass, to not just be a responsible citizen but to also bring reform in society by contributing in ways suitable to them. We aimed to remove all barriers and bring quality education to children with special needs and those that cannot afford it to bring improvement in their life as well as the society. We worked towards their overall mental development. Being associated with psychology we had sessions that allowed them to be more insightful about themselves and the world.
We distributed books and basic stationary to these children. We also worked on spreading awareness about importance of education in places where parents of many children do not send them to schools and instead make them engage in work. When we communicated with these children, we came to know how interested and involved they get with studies and other activities. Their curiosity and eagerness to learn can even inspire adults to take up some hobbies they love! As responsible citizens it becomes our duty to join hands with government to achieve 100% literacy rate in India. Our motto is ‘Each one, teach one’ and this programme was started with this vision.
