" Being very passionate for working in promoting the rights of women specially in the area of sexual and repoductive health which is a buring isuue of our society for ages, the Millennium Fellowship will help me to contribute to my society. It will not only help to spread awareness among the womens regarding reproductive health but also provide a platform to have a practical sharing of knowledge in understanding the goals of Sustainable Development more closely. It will also assist in bringing out a responsible global citizen within me, nurturing the needs of the present world. As a true believer of Buckminster Fuller where he states "You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete." I believe every year is a Millennium just a mentality of change is required in everyone to bring a change in society and even a small contribution matters. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Samman: Our Body Our Right

My project focuses on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) of women from the state of Jharkhand which I am a native of. SRHR is a concept people of this state are ignorant and unaware about. Here it is taboo to talk about sex and sexuality which is the primary reason for people’s unawareness. Under such circumstances it is paramount to be an advocate and promoter of sexual health and rights. My project will have 3 stages the first one will be “visit and research” this will include numerous visits in Jharkhand’s tribal area and openly taking about SRHR as it will help in eradicating the taboo associated with it. In this phase I will try to know the people and their problems relating to SRHR. The second phase will be “fund raiser”, which will attract NGO’s and concerned authorities. This phase will increase our manpower and resources. The third and final phase will be “creating awareness”, according to me; interaction is the only way to educate the tribal community about such issues. I have planned to invite some medical professional in order to educate masses on this topic. I shall also distribute free sanitary napkins as this will eliminate the stigma surrounding women menstruation. According to me, to end this taboo we need to be open about the problem and end this stigma. I will also visit schools to spread awareness about SRHR through pamphlets, webinar, seminar, campaign etc. I will also conduct nukkad-natak with my team so that lay man can understand the issue.
