The Saathi Fellowship is an attempt to address and solve the problem of unemployment, exacerbated in the times of COVID-19. This three-month-long, immersive, social entrepreneurship program will equip youth with the knowledge, skills, and resources and support them in kick-starting or strengthening microenterprises to generate livelihood/additional income opportunities for vulnerable people severely impacted by the pandemic.
The fellows during the course of their fellowship will engage through either of the two tracks:
- Solve a problem from the community they reside in or
- Solve a problem from the community where our non-profit partners are present
- Indian citizens of age at least 18 years as on 1st August 2021
- Available full time for 3 months starting October 2021
- Able to communicate in basic English
Round 1 – Application submission
Round 2 – Workshop and assignment submission
Round 3 – Video Interview
The applications are now open and interested candidates can submit their applications as an individual or a team of two here. The last date to submit the application is 15th September 2021. Post the application submission, the short listed candidates will be invited to attend an online workshop which will include a brief introductory session to sensitize the potential fellows about key elements of this fellowship. The candidates will then be asked to complete and submit an assignment. Subsequently, based on the submissions, the shortlisted candidates will be called for the third and final round which is a video call interview to get to know them better and find if they fit well within the landscape of this fellowship.
We believe in providing equal opportunity and do not discriminate on the basis of race, caste, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We encourage people of all backgrounds and identities to apply.
