More Information

Development of India is responsibility of everyone – NGOs, government, corporates, enterprises and most importantly of its citizens. Our belief is that in each and every sector, India needs talented young leaders who have had deep exposure to India’s broader realities, who understand the challenges and opportunities presented in diverse environments, who have the empathy, skills and determination to create social good. Our future bankers, scientists, bureaucrats, teachers, entrepreneurs need this learning experience.

Young people have tremendous potential to bring about change in the country. Indai Fellow need to invest in these young leaders and provide them the opportunity to get exposed to India’s social development challenges, explore their role within it, approach the future with the passion and purpose they need to make an impact – on our nation and our world.

A lot many young people are making a conscious career choice to work in the development sector by choosing to go to social work institutions such as like IRMA, TISS, XISS etc. However there are many who have not considered their role in social development and therefore can tremendously benefit from an experiential learning program that can help them find their own path to contribute to social change irrespective of whether they choose a career in NGO, businesses or government.

Through the India Fellow program they want to capture the attention of young people from all walks of life, with diverse career interests, to dig in and get their hands dirty, to get to know the development challenges through internship, training and coaching. This we believe will help them in becoming committed and passionate leaders of tomorrow. And in the process contribute a lot to the development of India.


Vision: A future where leaders in all spheres of life are driven by compassion, commitment and understanding of the social challenges that India faces and have a deep desire to make a difference.

Mission: Their mission is to engage young Indians in nation building. They want young Indians to get exposed to the myriad social challenges that India is facing and find their leadership potential, shape their futures and make a difference.

Objective: Create a learning platform for young Indians who undergo a 13 month long journey of discovering their own leadership potential. It includes training, mentor-ship, reflections and hands-on work experience with a grassroots organization working on social issues.


They are looking for potential leaders of tomorrow. They believe that these leaders should exhibit certain values which are at the heart of a leadership journey. The fellows, fellowship team, partners and all other associates would be expected to live by these values.

1. Authenticity: Be true to oneself and others without fear. Congruence between thought and actions.
