We aim to create social responsible youth leaders through action on issues of social justice. We educate, empower, and give voice to the future generations by providing them a platform to make a real difference and meaningful contribution to their respective communities.
Do note that the program doesn’t entail volunteering with NGOs (or TIDE Foundation’s existent interventions) but instead promotes students to develop and implement an intervention of their own choosing, to counter a social issue of their interest, in their own respective communities.
We plan to support students through interactive workshops, mentoring from experts, and hands-on learning to engage in a social changemaking initiative of their choosing. The workshops will cover a host of topics including understanding social issues (their interconnectedness and intersectionality), needs assessment and SWOT analyses, action planning, and thinking and writing skills. Students will be divided into small groups who work on a shared social issue and the teams will be supported by mentors. Thereafter, the students will implement their respective projects, document their work, and explore its impact. Finally students will present their work to experts, at their schools, and in a public exhibition.
We hope to create thinkers, activists, changemakers, and compassionate human-beings! The fellowship provides students with an excellent opportunity for students to develop:
The fellowship provides students with a platform to raise their voices, bring a social impact, interact with leading experts from various universities and other NGOs, and receive public recognition of their contribution.
The fellowship provides a unique opportunity for the schools to get involved with.
