The world is facing a crisis of leadership. It requires the nurturing of young intersectional feminist leaders towards radically shifting oppressive structures that our world is currently built on while rebuilding more just and equitable communities.
The One Future Fellowship is our way of germinating such leadership in pockets of the world and was conceptualised as a space for nurturing value-led social leaders that would go on to radically transform every space they occupy. We envisage this journey as one of ‘building people and not just ideas’.
The Fellowship is a one of its kind leadership and capacity building programme that focuses on four components- learning, community, coaching, and action. It is a unique space for young feminist leaders to build knowledge and translate it into action in a collaborative environment. The Fellowship is designed as a co-learning, cohort-based programme and is powered by the Fellows that join us on our journey.
Our Fellows have highlighted that they have found a community of practitioners, had their learning increase significantly and gained key skills of community organising, narrative building, impact assessment, and taking ideas from the ideation to execution stages. 98% of the Fellows would definitely recommend the fellowship to someone else.
The fourth edition of the One Future Fellowship will have two cycles:
Cycle 1- 3rd September 2022 to 19th March 2023
Cycle 2- 7th May 2023 to 19th November 2023
The Fellowship is open to people of South Asian origin between the ages of 18 to 30 years who identify as a woman, gender-nonconforming, non-binary, trans, agender or genderfluid person. It requires a weekly commitment of 20 hours (including live learning hours). A fee of 25,000 INR is charged towards the programme to ensure accountability and independence. We also offer need-based financial aid. We encourage people from oppressed backgrounds to apply.
