As an initiative to engage supporters on a knowledge sharing and productive manner, The Akshaya Patra Foundation is all set to begin a Social Innovation Fellows Programme. This programme will give a platform for budding social entrepreneurs and will also enhance their leadership potential thereby equipping them to make impactful social change.
Akshaya Patra is inviting applications for its first batch of Fellows programme and members for this programme will be selected based on criterions like leadership potential, communication skills, entrepreneurial skills, education qualification, age, nationality and most importantly commitment and zeal to serve children. This will be a paid one year programme.
The application process has already begun on 3rd April and the last date for submitting application is 30th April. The Fellows programme is scheduled to commence from 15th June 2015 before which there will be a round of interview to select the final participants. Akshaya Patra has charted a well-structured programme calendar wherein along with being guided by the Project Innovation Department, the Fellows will get an opportunity to work with other departments of the organisation like Communication, Process, and the like. All the Fellows will be remunerated Rs. 25,000 per month and all work related travel expenses will be reimbursed. Accommodation facility has to be arranged by the Fellows and will not receive any reimbursement for the same.
