" I want to do something for the less privileged children so that they can stand tall in this rapidly progressing world of ours. I am excited to work with the same like-minded people that want to do something for others and improve the way we live. Even if the change is small, all we need to do is try and Allah SWT will help and make the journey full of ease and success. I want to do something that people would remember me for and I believe that me and my friends will work together and we can be successful and we will be successful in achieving our goal InShaAllah. "
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.
