" The passion to work for the downtrodden, underprivileged and the affected people is the one that drives me to work harder. The potential which stays untapped in the poor, the unheard voices of the oppressed are some of the things that I want to explore. I want to use this opportunity to learn more about how to go about my objectives by interacting with ppl from other parts of the world. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Silenced Stories

Silenced Stories is a group project led by Millennium Fellows Jharana Awasthi and Rahul Rathnakara. With this project, we aim to provide assistance to victims of sexual crimes irrespective of their gender. With the help of students and faculty of NITK, we will start support groups where there is an equal mix of genders for people to talk about their experiences and seek help. These support groups will be held once a month initially and the frequency will be increased once we have more people coming in. We will conduct two online sessions on spreading awareness and encourgaging people to speak up and seek help. Additionally, we will visit local schools once a month to educate students about good touch and bad touch and the common social stigmas that exist around speaking up about such situations and what steps they should take if they have faced a similar situation. We will have talks with our college therapist to understand the trauma and try to arrange sessions with the therapist to provide professional help.
