“India Fellow Social Leadership program helps young people become socially conscious leaders of tomorrow and in the process helps them discover what they are truly meant to accomplish in life … This however is easier said than done. In the 13 months that follow, the India Fellows spend 12 months working full time on demanding projects, write blogs, complete training assignments and at the same time engage deeply with their cohort and fellowship team. Just like “Samundra Manthan” it takes grit, courage and determination to go through India Fellows program. But in the end these will be the most memorable 13 months of their lives”, says Rahul Nainwal, co-founder.
MEET THE COMMUNE
The India Fellow Program imbibes the ethos of a commune; the ownership of its growth is the responsibility of everyone engaged. The program team for the core operations and strategy of the fellowship is made up of us – the commune; it cuts across cohorts, geography, academic disciplines and personalities. In nature, the doorway or an amalgamation between two things is where the land is most fertile. This vibrant community of fellows who come back to do their bit for the program is what gives India Fellow its characteristic style, which is personal and friendly and yet full of field rigor, development perspectives, commitment and constant peer feedback.
