Millennium Fellowship Project: Redefining Education Amidst Diversity
Redefining Education Amidst Diversity is a multi-pronged programme targeted at improving the quality of life in rural India wherein the benefits of schemes are slow to reach and farfetched. The project has the following parts: (1) Giving Wings to Potential: Providing gender equal education and sensitization of people specially women for the restrictive constructs of like menses etc. The aim is to create awareness about medical, physical and emotional health and hygiene of these girls. (2) Legal Awareness: A lot of people do not know about the laws which affect them in their daily lives. The Programme project aims at making people aware of their rights and duties in a lucid way. (3) Stimulating Education in Environmental-Farming Discourses (S.E.E.D.): The project aims to act as a medium for evaluating and sharing best farming practices/information across the country to inspire a spirit of scientific and climate-conscious temperament within farmers.
