Millennium Fellowship Project: Turn the Page

Turn the Page is a student-led initiative designed to collect and donate educational resources to underprivileged communities across Mumbai city. We strongly believe that every person deserves access to quality educational resources, regardless of their socioeconomic status.

We will be asking for donations of new or gently used educational resources such as textbooks, workbooks, school supplies, and educational toys. Additionally, we shall also be on the lookout for umbrellas and raincoats — items that can help disadvantaged learners navigate the infamous Mumbai rains. These resources will be donated to local NGOs that work towards socio-economic emancipation of learners of all ages hailing from historically disadvantaged backgrounds. The goal of the project is to increase access to quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all, particularly in underserved communities.

Our mission is to empower individuals to reach their full potential by providing them with the tools they need to succeed. Through this project, we hope to make a meaningful contribution to improving education in the city, and ultimately contribute to building a more sustainable, equitable, and prosperous society. We believe that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty and creating a brighter future for everyone.
