" It is always a thrilling experience to realize that there are other people in the world who you can unite with under the umbrella of a common goal. Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship promises that I can work alongside likeminded individuals for the common good, and I believe that speaks to the caring nature of humanity. It is a privilege just to be grouped with such inspirational people. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Assistance for Vulnerable Women Across the Globe
AVWAG is a project focused on helping women in vulnerable situations, initated by fellow Victoria Alexander and Katherine Gross. Our goals are to reach out to women of vulnerable populations in our local communities and cities of study (through local non-profit organizations or possibly through school), volunteer in any form which may contribute beneficially to their lives, gain knowledge and understanding of the circumstances of their life the social implications which have caused them, provide assistive action to their community, conduct research on the social structure contributing to their vulnerability in site location, and learn/empathize with/share their story. We will do this by facilitating a clothing and food drive rolling through the semester on site location for donation and assistance and visiting the volunteer center at least 4 times throughout the program period, conducting research on the society which they inhabit and threats which they may face personally and socially and the implication of such on their population as a whole, and getting to know at least one individual from this group and site location and spreading awareness by sharing their story in a self-published column (one per group member).
