" I am grateful and excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it will give me the golden platform to grow intellectually, as well as get ideas, mentorship, support and the network that will help me leave positive legacies through the implementation of social impact projects. I believe 'Quality Education' is the password to the growth and development of a society. On this note, I look forward to joining hands with like-minds in actualizing this 'Sustainable Development Goal', and even more. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: EduReach 2021
The rural areas and urban slums are often time disadvantaged in terms of access to quality education. EduReach 2021 is a project that is aimed at eliminating all discrimination in education. This was made possible by:
-Organizing enlightenment programs, targeted at secondary school students on the importance of pursuing advanced education, inciting in them the enthusiasm and fueling the desire to pursue higher education.
-Organizing intellectual competitions-debates and quizzes where the participants will be awarded. This served as an incentive to the students to continue in the path of excellence.
