" I believe the experience of being a Millennium Fellow will not only be helpful in developing a better network to access more opportunities for the orphan children i work with; but also, it will allow me to enhance my dedicated philanthropic efforts by providing me with a platform and numerous learning opportunities hence improving my understanding of the impact that needs to be made. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: One Child One World – OCOW
Under their project OCOW, Pehchaan aims to make an effort for a better upbringing of the children at the orphanages in Pakistan in hopes of providing them with a nourishing childhood. Our goal is to provide them with exposure that will allow them to grow as individuals through personality and skill development. This includes teaching the children about personal and professional grooming, social etiquettes and even holding discussions to produce awareness about global issues. With this we hope that the children will hold the capacity to compete with all other privileged children of their age from a place of equality.
