“A computer engineering graduate, and thereafter working in the corporate circles for four years, I would have never imagined that pressing down the Send button of that resignation email could invoke so many emotions, apprehensions and excitement being at the forefront. I decide to hold on to the email, and ask Ma to make me a cup of coffee.”

That was 3 and a half years ago. A 25 something who was heading for what now seems a dangerously guided, unaware and indifferent life is long gone; replaced by a 29 year who has had a host of experiences and a hell of a journey to share – designing insurance, saving and literacy programs for women in rural Maharashtra or marketing rural farm products or teaching in education camps in the Himalayas; with the same comfort as meeting old friends in Bombay in Marine Drive.

    • They are looking to recruit passionate young individuals who will make a positive social impact in their society, in our country or even the world, but most importantly in their own lives. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius!
    • Go on a thirteen months long exciting journey to address problems and issues that are worth solving. Get a first-hand experience of challenges on the ground with NGOs and social enterprises.
    • Fellows will be supported throughout their journey with trainings, coaching and reflection meetings. They will be living and working closely with other fellows during their fellowship. As they embark on a career of social change, they will find this network extremely valuable.
    • Throughout the program you will be on a journey where you will lead by listening, observing, acting and reflecting. Ideas will be created every day; you will discover what you want to do with your own lives and learn to turn your ideas into reality. But don’t take their word for it.
