" I think being a Millennium Fellow will help me grow not only in a professional capacity but also as an individual member of the community. Skills such as communication, adaptability, the ability to learn from fellow individuals, and to understand that there are several idiosyncratic ways of bringing change are necessary when you are trying to do your best for society, but they are also needed when you are attempting to progress in your personal life, your career as well as an individual. These are skills I believe I can exemplify and nurture through the fellowship. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Inaya
Inaya seeks to empower through education. In today’s day and age, independence and self-sustenance is key. Often, women who have been abused, are underprivileged or do not have the ability or the support to fight those who have been denying them their basic rights, do not have the fundamental financial knowledge needed to utilize their earnings and funds appropriately. It is through basic financial knowledge that we seek to empower the women of Hyderabad and do our bit to help them become citizens who are aware and responsible.
