Awards & Recognition
Late Justice Mr. N L Abhyankar Award
Last audited December 2018
Milaan was initiated by four passionate students from the University of Delhi with an objective of promoting access to quality education in rural spaces. Realizing the fact that there is a major development gap between the children in rural areas and urban areas, the main objective that drove the fellowship was to allow educated youth from urban areas to spend time in rural areas. There are no defined goals. The idea is to experience life in a rural setting while looking for ways to contribute. The members started working vigorously towards transforming the rural education sector by focusing on increasing access to quality education through programs like Swabhiman and Outreach Program. The efforts of the 46 member team reached out to 300 students in 7 classrooms and 4 centers. Milaan was also awarded the Girl Power Awards by the Dasra and Guide Star Finalist. The core philosophy of Milaan arose to bring about equality in society as a necessary first step towards advancing as a people, as a nation and as a civilization which can be achieved through quality education.
