" I have a strong commitment to child education and empowering girls. I think children have tremendous potential, and with the correct guidance, support, and work, they can do much more than anyone could have imagined. I am here because someone had faith in me, and they had faith in my goals and aspirations, and I aspire to be the one who has confidence in the aspirations and abilities of those young people. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: The Padhai Project

The average enrollment in Indian Primary Education in 2020 was 99.9%. For comparison, the world average in 2020 based on 68 countries was 103.46%. While the education enrolment is still considerably high, what students in India majorly lack is the skill.
The Padhai Project plans to address this problem by conducting workshops, improving the students' soft skills, extracurricular activities/hobbies, and giving them exposure to non-mainstream fields - the exposure they don't get in their academics. We plan to work with institutions and organizations that house underprivileged kids (mostly 1st to 4th grade), and industry experts who will conduct these workshops for the kids.
Our workshops will be practical and professionally handled. Career guidance for outgoing students in 10th and 12th grades is also something we intend to provide the students.

About the Millennium Fellow

Vidhi Agarwal is a creative, hard working, and diligent student. Currently, she is pursuing BA in Mass Communication at Symbiosis Centre for Media and Communication, Pune. The cause she is passionate about is child education and wishes to achieve the same through her project - 'THE PADHAI PROJECT'. She believes that the Millennium Fellowship would provide a face to her campaign and would help her reach out to the youth and inspire them. It would also help her interact with like-minded people who are willing to contribute to the same cause and provide a larger impact in the world. This Fellowship would also allow her to learn and experiment with new ideas. She wishes to inspire every child, every woman to have a voice, to have a dream, and to accomplish that dream because she believes it's time, we make this world one that is led by women.
