Millennium Fellowship Project: UMEED
Umeed is a project focused on SDG number 3 (Good Health and Well-being) and SDG number 4 (Quality Education). Our goal is to spread awareness and solve the resource constraints that children from marginalized communities face. We have three main tenets: collection of donations for these kids, connecting them with older-grade students who provide them with their old books, and talking to them about their mental health. A lot of kids from lower socio-economic backgrounds end up going to low-income jobs even when they have great potential. Many of them also have internalized trauma due to their social conditions and hence, never learn emotional growth. This is exactly why we wish to work with children like this and help them fight their circumstances. It focuses on raising awareness about early education while providing adequate fundings and resources for students. Along with that, a vital part of the project is to bring attention towards the importance of mental health and emotional wellbeing in students.
About the Millennium Fellow
Maheen Shahid Khan is a bit of everything. She believes strong leadership and communication is the key for everything. To impose ideologies isn't the route I intend to take, rather I prefer to work alongside my constituents with dignity, respect and nonconforming regulations that would hence become the outline of outstanding discipline. I have an urge to grow, learn and excel in life.
