" My long term goal is to bring honesty, happiness and economic prosperity to my country and to the world, and to raise children who are capably committed to this cause, and to each other. Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship will allow me to learn from peers and mentors about new ideas that will help me in reaching this goal. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: FLAME
FLAME stands for ‘Fostering Leadership through Access to Mentorship and Education’. The aim is to train a group of high school students into a team of ‘solutionaries’, by providing them with knowledge and tools to plan, assess and execute social initiatives, and to be conscientious choice-makers and engaged change-makers for a better world. Experienced mentors who have worked in similar fields share their invaluable experiences with the students and help them take their ideas to the next stage. Using systems thinking methodology, the students will dive deeper into their research and investigation to understand the societal systems that are causing and perpetuating the problem, as well as the deeper causes – such as beliefs, mindsets, and psychological factors – that have led us to create those systems. FLAME and its mentors would assist in implementing the solutions the students come up with to the greatest degree possible within the constraints of the WHO guidelines for the pandemic.
