Gandhi Fellowship

School change

The Fellows undergo a two year program that propels them towards becoming a nation builder through a Fellow works with his 5 peers to cause an impact in 25 schools which are allocated to them through implementing field tested tools, conducting workshops and providing field support.

Community change

During community immersion, the Fellows go into the school communities and convince the members to let them stay in the community, try out different labour jobs, manage to create awareness and increase involvement of community in the education processes at school. The public system project enables the Fellow in finding connection to a problem. Solving it by collaborating at all levels with internal and external people, this builds an entrepreneurial mind-set in the fellows.

The first year of the Fellowship is an intense learning and unlearning experience. The Fellows are unlearning a lot of what they had learnt so far, overcoming their prejudices, changing their mind-sets etc. At the same time, they are learning the way the organization functions, the way the education system in their geography functions, how to manage change and influence others’ mind-sets etc. Meditation for 10 days at a Vipassana centre is an essential part of Fellowship curriculum and Fellows journey within.
