XIM University | Bhubaneswar, India | Advancing SDG 3 & UNAI 6
" Compassion and kindness can help to make the world a better place. As a Millennium Fellow, I, along with a group of other individuals, will be one step closer to achieving this goal. Mental health is an issue that is less discussed, perhaps because it is not physically visible, but this programme will help it gain at least the importance it deserves. I hope that we will be able to make a difference. "
