Millennium Fellowship Project: Ignite
Ignite was an initiative inspired by the selfless educators around us. It was an attempt to encourage children to complete their primary education and aim higher and eventually be able to stand up on their feet and support their families, in a non-conventional teaching setup.
About the Millennium Fellow
Shreya Kiran is an inquisitive, passionate and ambitious scientist in the making from PES University Bangalore, India. She shows deep interest in learning anything new and shows excellent team spirit. She is very participative in the classroom and comes up with practical yet creative solutions to everyday problems.
Shreya is also calm, composed and a very patient listener and is open to constructive criticism.
She believes that equal primary education is an influential factor in one’s life to determine their means of a livelihood. She does not like the idea of education being dependent on social status. Primary education, at least, must be equal to all! Her inspiration comes from her mother, who is a professional educator herself and has contributed immensely to the field of higher education.
Shreya currently volunteers with an organization dedicated to the same cause wherein kids from shelter homes gather every weekend to learn something that the government schools fail to inculcate due to the lack of resources and infrastructure.
Shreya is a convergent thinker who is both dedicated and determined to bring about a change. She firmly believes that change leads to the betterment of oneself.
