" I am excited to be a part of a team within the college that believes in giving back, enabling change, and have the aim to do their part in furthering the UN goals of sustainability. Additionally, the Millennium Fellowship would also connect me to other similar people who have shared interests and that excites me the most. "
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.
