Program Description

The Milaan Girl Icon Program is a 2-year leadership development initiative for adolescent girls between the ages of 12-18 years who have demonstrated the willingness and ability to challenge social barriers that restrict the unleashing of girls’ potential and voices.



Donations to this program will be used to fund the learning grant and social grant of a Girl Icon student.



The program includes a learning grant as well as a social action grant. Learning grant is for their personal development and social action grant is for campaigns for social change.



Milaan believes in the power of girls and women to drive, change and transform their communities into spaces where there is education for all, gender equality, and accessible opportunities.



This program empowers adolescent girls from some of the most marginalized and vulnerable communities in India by helping them make informed choices and take control of their lives. The program equips the Girl Icons with the knowledge, skills, courage and confidence to stand up, raise their voices and take charge.



The Leadership Design Framework entails:



Leading Self - Courage and Confidence

Leading Others – Leadership and Influence

Leading Social Change – Collective Action



The two-year leadership journey is composed of



20 days of residential training, a learning grant of INR 20,000,

A Social Action Grant of INR 5000 for 3 projects

72 hours of mentorship support.



Each Girl Icon forms a peer group of 20 adolescent girls in their respective communities and facilitates 60 hours of Leadership Development Training aimed at creating awareness around social issues in their respective communities.



This experiential leadership journey equips girls with requisite knowledge, skills and networks for being a leader to challenge the status quo, break barriers and create a more equitable society.



The proposed Girl Icon Program will aim at empowering and enabling 100 Girl Icons and their 2000 peers in some of the most marginalized communities to be future leaders and to drive change.



Milaan is looking to scale this program in future to work with 500 Girl Icons and 10,000 Girl Icon Peers with the potential to scale globally utilizing digital smart solutions.



Building this network of strong and empowered young women, Milaan Foundation shares the stories of progress created by as they drive systemic change for girls around the world.





‘The Sustainable Development Goal #5 (2015-2030)’ is to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

About : Milaan Be The Change

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.
