Initiated in 2008, the Gandhi Fellowship Program is an opportunity for the nation’s promising youth to solve the country’s most pressing problems in various sectors by working closely with the administration and government officials. It is a 2-year full-time residential, leadership development program that helps young people connect to the grassroots, understand issues first-hand, and implement innovative solutions to cause change in self, system and society.
Gandhi Fellowship Program is designed in a way that helps fellows to practise a cyclic process of- ‘Plan- Act- Reflect’. The program follows an extensive curriculum focused towards developing soft skills necessary for sustenance in the 21st century.
Swami Vivekananda once said, “Give me 100 bright young minds and I will change the world”; It was this idea that mightily inspired the advent of India’s biggest Fellowship, in terms of human resources and operational terrain.
“Be the Change You wish to see in the world” – this quote by Mahatma Gandhi heavily inspired the formation of the Gandhi Fellowship and its subsequent journey.
The Fellowship was designed to instil the ideals of Empathy in the individuals and enabling them to discover the path of “Self-Change to System Change”. It focuses on harnessing the leadership capabilities and problem-solving skills of the youth, thereby setting them on the path of change management.
Also, the Gandhi Fellowship aims to support and facilitate the culture of Excellence and Empathy among the middle management of the government ecosystem.
