Millennium Fellowship Project: The Parity Project

The key pillar of any project is its objective wherein the objective is the focal point which it aims to achieve. The Basic objective for this project could be described as using education to bridge the gap between the genders. As we know, the period wherein the children grow up is of crucial importance as they are introduced to newer things which can be exciting, but amidst that, they are also introduced to stereotypes and biases which shape their entire mindset and attitude and further passed down to their future generations through cultural practices and reference materials. By educating children at a young age about gender equality, their mindset would be set to develop in a gender-neutral manner. This project also aims to identify the existing knowledge gaps in terms of different genders and along with appropriate steps to improve the situation. This project ensures that both genders not only have just mere access to education but are also empowered by it.
The second most crucial part of any project is the process through which it aims to accomplish its objective. This project would try to accomplish the goal with the help of delivering modules to children. The modules are a combination of theoretical & conceptual framework combined with Practical applications to enhance their understanding. The modules that are going to be taught would cover fundamental aspects such as personal health and hygiene in the form of Sciences (basics in biology, nutrition and Physiology can be touched upon), English, Math, and skill development in areas such as communication, public speaking and other technology-related fields. Along with that, various activities will be created keeping in mind how society perceives these with respect to gender. Children will be encouraged to participate in all activities to help them overlook the idea that this is a specific gender’s responsibility along with discussing & talking about real life examples that relate to students’ realities while teaching concepts, holding discussions on their gender-based experiences, listening to how they perceive their gender shall help open up their minds to conversations around gender. These would help to provide knowledge and spread awareness on different genders and try to bridge the gap between them through seminars and various activities
