Founder speaks

“India Fellow Social Leadership program helps young people become socially conscious leaders of tomorrow and in the process helps them discover what they are truly meant to accomplish in life. In the 18 months that follow, the India Fellows spend time working full time on demanding host assignments in challenging setups, recording observations and reflections, complete training assignments and at the same time engage deeply with their cohort and mentors. Just like Samundra Manthan, it takes grit, courage and determination to go through the India Fellows program. But in the end these will be the most memorable 18 months of their lives”says Rahul Nainwal, Co-Founder

Our alumni  journeys

Meet the commune

We are a network of 220+ young Indians with common values and experience of rigorous grassroots work, with diverse professional skills. A majority work with civil society organizations, leading various programs. Some have started their own social enterprises, work in policy think-tanks and bureaucracy as well as with foundations and corporations – at crucial junctions of Samaaj-Sarkaar-Bazaar.

Our team is committed to be with you in this journey throughout
