Goonj Fellowship

The Goonj Fellowship is our way of engaging with the youth in a deeper way. We are looking for people who are done looking around and are ready to do something. This fellowship is about engaging with some real life challenges, tasks and timelines, to give you hands on experience and immersion into urban and rural India’s realities and a precursor for your own action plan at the end of the fellowship.

Why this fellowship?

Answer: If some things around you bother you.. Our education system, Waste on the roads or Women’s safety.. This fellowship gives you a unique opportunity to not only understand the urban and rural perspective but actually get out there and do something.. build empathy and understanding about some issues, understand your strengths and potential from doing and coming up with a real action plan. Goonj, given its deeply entrenched pan India work with urban and rural masses,  is in a unique position to provide you a wide ranging experience and exposure to urban and rural issues as well as some of the resources needed to design and execute your own ideas and plan. It is about shifting your mind from the thinking mode to the doing mode.

As our founder Anshu Gupta says, “ This world doesn’t need any more thinkers right now.. We need more doers.. “  The fellowship activities are meant to finetune your values, and skills and question and reframe some of your notions, stretch you mentally and physically and build your entrepreneurial skills. It is also your chance to get introduced to another India, living in our villages, to witness and engage first hand with grassroots  innovation. At the end it will culminate into you developing your own action plan, with mentoring from some experts from the field of social entrepreneurship. .
