" I am excited to be part of this great network of like-minded fellows all seeking to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. My goal is to educate students especially underprivileged students who cannot pay for education and make them available with free resources. I firmly believe that Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. I'm also really excited to meet people across the globe who love making impact. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Techiegram
Techiegram is an online learning community that mainly targets technical skill development on-demand, advocating for SGD 4: Quality Education. The access to the community would be free of cost and open to learners of all age groups irrespective of their geographical location or financial background. Statistics show that if all children were educated with basic reading and writing skills, the world's poverty could be reduced by 15%. Imparting technical education to children in under-developed areas can bring about a major change in their life as well as in the community around them. Learners can join the community by simple registration via our website where information on the aim of our project, contact details of the organizers and mentors, notifications regarding the events and classes are available.
The community would be organized using social media handles. We would be providing live interactive online classes on various technologies. Recorded classes will be made available on our YouTube channel. We aim to serve as a helping hand to crane unprivileged people from poverty, by empowering them with technical skills. With these skills, they can gain better jobs but moreover, they can use these skills to bring about development in the poor community around them.
