" I am an individual who highly supports the idea of, "Equality for all; Education for all". I still believe there remains many cluster of people without having any idea on education in the nooks and corners of the world. Small drops makes a big ocean, right ? I think my part of small effort may sometime become a real BIG talk. And with the idea and guidance of this Millennium Fellowship, I am highly excited and looking forward to work on this. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Sanctuary

Our project titled ‘Sanctuary’ aims at creating a forum and a safe space amongst the students of our college. The project is based on SDG 10, ‘Reduced Inequalities’ and the 7th UNAI principle, ‘Intercultural dialogue’. Its main objective is to create a space where student can express their concerns about the impact of societal issues on them. More than just a place of discussion, we hope to get in touch with mental health professionals and NGOs so that we can connect people in need of such services.

The project aims to be a multi-purpose forum and a safe space for women in our college community to express themselves without the fear of judgement. Sanctuary will also help share information and encourage healthy discussions on various intersectional themes such as colourism in India, menstruation taboos and more, culminating in the path to gender equality. Additionally, Sanctuary will augment the discussion forum with social media exploring experiences, as well as devising additional targets to accomplish the goal of gender equality. While Sanctuary has synthesized as a conversation starter, it aims to evolve into a sound solution of appreciable value.

A tentative plan for the project would consist of: Creation of a social media page to create a digital space that would improve the scope of the project. Generating social media posts, and creating a digital forum through platforms like Discord to ensure that more people can benefit from the project. Since it is not just about sharing experiences but also about creating a safe space, ensuring that people who require professional help get it. Reaching out to mental health professionals and NGOs. The project will make us confront the probing questions in our minds and hearts and eventually lead to drawing up plans or solutions to problems we encounter.
