" Everyone wants to see a change in the world but ideas and opinions alone won't turn into action. The platform of Millennium Fellowship would help me put forth these in a right and more structured way. The interaction with the MCN's cohort members and the knowledge acquired during the fellowship would help to upskill myself. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Jeevanadi
Project Jeevanadi focuses on creating a meaningful impact primarily on three important social issues: Financial literacy for women and school children, menstrual health and quality education for underprivileged children and education for underserved children.
1. Financial Literacy: A topic that isn’t given much attention in schools which in turn leads to students growing up to make poor life decisions in their future. Women and children in India have always held a paradoxical position when it comes to making financial decisions, we empower them through conducting workshops, by guiding them step-by-step in attaining a level of financial literacy.
2. Menstrual Health & Hygiene: According to one study, only 36% of India’s 336 million menstruating females use sanitary napkins while the rest use life-threatening materials to manage the flow leading to issues due to it. Our team aims to educate women about menstrual health and distribute basic sanitary kits through various on-ground operations.
3. Education for underserved children: Our team is passionate about educating children who do not have access to the resources to fulfil their potential with personal mentoring sessions. We believe that enabling them is the first step to fixing what is missing in our society. We will be tutoring them in basic subjects and offering career guidance to help them realize their goals.
