Millennium Fellowship Project: Team Sustenance

Project Sustenance is an initiative taken by a group of 14 UN Millennium Fellows of 2022 from Amity University Mumbai. The goal is to make sure that everyone, everywhere, has access to enough good quality food to live a healthy life. In this project, the team are planning to conduct awareness programs, setting up some seminars in school about food waste management, and planning a one day meal at Govt. school, educating the young mass to avoid food waste, eat healthy food, save water.
The drive at Girija Welfare Association began with a small introductory speech from the fellow members with the orphanage members and children as audience. The fellow members talked about the United Nations, the Millennium Fellowship Program, and the SDG Zero-Hunger. The entire speech was conducted in three languages: English, Hindi, and the local language Marathi. Then an ice breaker session was held between the members and the children where we tried to explore the different talents and capabilities of these children. After the session, food provided by Project Sustenance members was distributed and served to the kids by the fellow members. This food was organised by Girija Foundation from the charitable donation made from Project Sustenance’ side through an online fundraising event held on 27th October. After the lunch was over in the orphanage, we visited the old age section of the Girija Welfare Association and explained to them our cause. We also served them food. Through our ice breaker session, we discovered that one of the kids’ named Akash had his birthday on the same day as the visit. We planned to celebrate his birthday and organised an impromptu birthday party. We ended the day with commemorative photos with the kids and members.

About the Millennium Fellow

Om Sawant is a bright and smart last year Btech. Biotechnology student. He is born and brought up in Mumbai, India and in currently pursuing the degree from Amity University Mumbai. Since the time I can remember I was always interested in environmental studies , and soon I got to know about the water scarcity in the world and how I can help tackle this problem with the knowledge I have and create a sustainable solution for this problem . I live and grew up in Mumbai which also called as the city of dreams, many people move here from thier hometowns following their dreams but not everyones dreams are fullfilled , so you see many people here living on roads and in slums and in very bad conditions here they are deprived of the basic necessities of life like food and clean water and seeing them I always wanted to do something for these people. I have also been doing some help already but I want to extend by helping hand by becoming Millennium Fellow
