Hidayatullah National Law University | Raipur, India | Advancing SDG 4 & UNAI 7


" Perhaps the most aesthetic amalgamation of creativity, social responsibility and fate is what drove me to become a Millennium Fellow. Up until the last day of the form submission, I did not know what the concept of Millennium Fellowship entailed. Nevertheless, a friend coaxed me to fill out the form and then I realised the finesse with which the goals of Millennium Fellowship aligned with my burning desire of social responsibility. To surmise, being a Millennium Fellow is exhilarating because I'd be able to bring about change at a more significant level and be more adept at tackling a greater set of collective action problems through dialogue, discourse, delegation and deeds.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Mitigating Multidimensional Inequalities Amongst Remote Communities

To achieve tangible benefits while securing SDG 10 ( Reduced inequalities) in remote communities, we need to set up a foundation for SDG 4(Quality Education) and SDG 5(Gender Equality).
Thus, while we aim to secure benefits from SDG 10, our project will transcend the demarcations laid down by the UN's Sustainable Development Goals to develop our community holistically. While doing so, we shall aim to satisfy SDG 10.3, which emphasizes ensuring equal opportunity and reducing the inequalities of the outcome by mobilizing policy-making and efficient legislation to address and do away with discriminatory results in terms of economic, social, political, and legal inclusion. Our tangential aims shall be redressing SDGs 4 AND 5, and that shall be done as follows:
SDG 4: At this point, it becomes imperative to recognize our privilege because of studying in one of India’s premier law schools. The benefits of having a liberal atmosphere around the university campus have exposed us to several think tanks Girl UpRise, Indian Forum for Public Diplomacy, Global Youth - socially-motivated alumni, and NGOs whose goals are similar to ours. Thus, we aim to collaborate and mobilize our efforts with such NGOs to raise the standard of primary education in our community through various seminars and undertaking several educational activities in the languishing areas of our community.
SDG 5: Gender Equality remains a hurdle in both connected and remote areas, and to channel legal access and aid to target gender analysis and inclusion across all walks of life, our objective is to spread awareness through informative modules in local languages (with translation to respective dialects) and physical and virtual seminars and conferences with authorities in the sphere as well as shaping the model to be stakeholder centric.
SDG 10 provides various dimensions for reducing inequalities. The most pressing of these are education and gender. The concept of an egalitarian society demands the presence of quality education and gender equality, for they are the carriers of social justice and realizing the idea of equal opportunity.
Thus, our project will reduce the existing inequalities in our society by targeting the void of quality education framed under a gender-centric mold to shape an all-inclusive culture for future generations.
Through the progress of the plan, the 10th Academic Impact Principle- A commitment to promoting intercultural dialogue and understanding and the unlearning of intolerance through education is strengthened as we recognize the benefits of being a part of an institute that supports inter-state and inter-cultural accommodation through increased engagement and insight into tribal values and tradition and help us mechanize a blueprint which has been elaborated in targeted answers.
