Awaken the Nation Builder in You

If you want to be a change agent, and play a key role in building our nation by taking all challenges head-on and solving live problems, then the Gandhi Fellowship awaits you.

The Gandhi Fellowship was born from Mahatma Gandhi’s belief, ‘Be the change you wish to see in this world’. The Fellowship, (an initiative of Piramal Foundation), is a platform established in 2008 for every self-motivated Indian youth with a dream of seeing a thriving India by discovering and building on the leader within. A leader who will drive transformation in India. A nation-builder who will ensure that no one is left behind. A committed citizen who will play a key role in creating a thriving India.

Since inception, Gandhi Fellows have been living our motto of “Build Self, Build Nation” , as they continue to inspire thousands of self-motivated youth across India to follow the less trodden path of this experiential, residential 2 year Fellowship. This immersive journey undertaken at the grassroots of India, provides an in-depth experience across areas of Public Health, Education and Water.

Today, our Fellows, building on the enriching Fellowship experience, are multi-sectoral entrepreneurs or essaying key roles in organisations, fuelled by their innate passion and spirit of selflessness, as they spearhead large scale change.

Come. Be the change.
