" I have perused law intending to be a social engineer so that I can contribute to the betterment of my society. Being associated with United Nation in itself is a great opportunity. Along with social impact, it will help me with my personality development. Our voices and interest will be in front of different people and organizations. The Millennium Fellowship will be a great platform where I can meet people from different countries and have opportunity to learn from them. I firmly believe that the Millennium Fellowship will enhance my creativity and working skills. Encouragement and acknowledgment by the Millennium Fellowship will push me forward to achieve my further goal. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Dakshya

Our team conducted research to fetch areas where we could contribute to creating social impact. We came across some inmates of the prison located in the Dhading district of Nepal. We observed that the prisoners there wanted to study but were are not provided with sufficient books and reading materials for it. We realized that learning and education is a life-long opportunity that no one should be deprived of and hence decided to go for a book distribution project.

The project Dakshya aimed to impact more than 300 prisoners of prison in the Dhading district. However, we are planning to extend our target to more prisons and impact the lives of more prisoners from other prisons around Nepal. Additionally, we will also be conducting a study regarding how the Prison system of Nepal is failing to facilitate prisoners with sufficient books and educational materials. This report shall work as a reference and a contribution for reform in the prison system for concerned authorities in Nepal
