About the Programme

A Fellowship for Care Leavers, India

 

 

Come, be the torch bearers for the future generations of Care Leavers!

A one-year Fellowship focused on developing and nurturing Care Leavers as agents of change, working towards improving the overall situation of Care Leaving in India. The Fellowship model was created keeping in mind the need for nurturing Care Leavers in India, and for them to follow their dreams and thrive exceptionally by giving back to society. The Fellowship aims to be a stepping stone for the Care Leavers in their own personal growth as well as bridging the existing gaps in society, by equipping them with suitable skills to navigate through the challenges and solve them. The academic curriculum of the Fellowship is tied together through a year-long, hands-on, Community Project to design innovative solutions for the Care Leavers community in India.
