Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University | Lucknow, India | Advancing SDG 4 & UNAI 6


" To quote the famous early 20th century Armenian novelist and activist, Zabel Yesayan, “a woman is not born into this world to be pleasing. A woman is born to develop her mental, moral and physical abilities.”
Gender equality is when people of all genders have equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities. Everyone is affected by gender inequality - women, men, trans and gender diverse people, children and families. It impacts people of all ages and backgrounds.
Through Millennium Fellowship, I can try to make this society
* equal
*have equal access to power, resources and opportunities
*be treated with dignity, respect and fairness
It will help world a better place to live in "

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.
