Millennium Fellowship Project: SHIKSHANAM

"Knowledge is one that liberates." - Shri VishnuPurana (1.19.41)

With this thought and a wish to transform the world into a more sustainable, inclusive, and equitable place, the Millennium fellows of Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University started the project “Shikshanam” based on SDG 4- Quality Education, aimed to work on the education of impoverished children and to support them in their higher education.
Through this project, the fellows aim to work on the literacy of impoverished children and to support some of them in their higher education. The project involves rigorous field visits where our fellows have been going to teach underprivileged children.
A devised curriculum suiting their needs is being taught to these children. Our team focuses on ensuring clarity of concepts which is reinforced by way of activities and hands-on learning.
We are currently educating 35-40 children under our cohort’s ambit. We are trying to identify a few of these lots that have the potential, and caliber and appear promising. We are working tirelessly to secure admission for these students in a private school in their locality instead of a government school so that they have access to better facilities. To cover the monetary aspect of their private school education, we would contact the District Inspector of Schools under the Right to Education Act. We are conducting pressing meetings with government school principals and teachers to ensure that the remaining who are not able to qualify for admission to a private school, are provided remedial classes in government schools. Remedial classes are for those students who aren’t as equipped as they should be according to the Grade that they are in; special focus would be given to ensure that they are able to cope with their counterparts.
The cohort went a step ahead and conducted lessons on basic Legal Rights and Financial literacy for the parents of these children. They were also explained provisions related to free Legal Aid and were also invited to the University’s annual Legal Aid Camp.

About the Millennium Fellow

Divya Mann is a final year law student at Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University, India. She was born in New Delhi, where she completed her schooling and also became an International Judoka. Apart from being an achiever throughout her school, college and sports, she is a socially driven individual which made her join the Legal Aid Clinic of her college, where later she got promoted as a Para Legal Volunteer. She actively participated in legal aid camps organised by the committee wherein she was particularly involved in a educational program run to educate socially and economically deprived children named Shiksha. In addition to being part of the legal aid society, on her personal level she observed the prevalent social divide amongst her peers and Fellow students within law school. This made her realise the importance of education as a tool which bridges the gap between the different communities which have been subjugated to discrimination because of the varied social-economical backgrounds. Moreover to further her purpose of making impact in the society by using the tool of education, she aspires to become an officer of the prestigious Indian Administrative Services after her graduation.
