Who We Are

Let's ride the wave together!

The Gandhi Fellowship started around 15  years ago, primarily to develop new age leadership skills in young people. While Indian institutions are really fantastic in developing technical skills, in order to be really successful in the world today, you need more than just technical skills. The 21st century, offers vast opportunities for those agile enough to adapt, collaborate, and commit to ongoing learning in a VUCA world of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. Living in this era is like a roller coaster – constantly shifting yet unpredictable. Events like the COVID pandemic, geopolitical tensions, and technological breakthroughs like Chat GPT are reshaping industries at an unprecedented pace. 

So the fellowship is a great finishing school for the young people who want to develop their skills and have accelerated careers.”

What we prepare you for?

VUCA World

21st Century VUCA world is all about facing the whirlwind of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity.
Our aim is to light up the path for the youth across India, and help bridge this gap to make a real impact on ground.


Volatile is about the increasing pace of change, be in the industry or in the world in general. Everything is changing rapidly around us. Hence, we need to develop the skills to provide superior results and a competitive edge.


Uncertain is about the extent that we can reasonably predict the future. It is becoming harder and harder to forecast what is going to happen and the likelihood of surprises has risen. This pushes us to explore new ideas for sustaining ourselves.


Complex is about the many different and interconnected parts of problems that we face. Hence, superior decision-making skills are needed where things are complex, leading to consequences that are not foreseen.


Ambiguous is about not having enough clarity regarding a situation to make an informed decision about it. Information may be incomplete, contradicting or too inaccurate to draw definite conclusions. It is important for one to polish their skills and go beyond their comfort zones.
