Fellowship for Peace & Learning
We started the Fellowship for Peace & Learning in 2011 in India with a vision to expand the program globally. and with focus on Women Empowerment through Education. We have been supporting girls from the underprivileged strata of the society to pursue their college education. Many students have completed their undergraduate college education and are now pursuing higher education or professional careers. Now this program has expanded to national level in India.

In addition to fellowships, we are now also offering mentorship to cultivate the awardees as holistic, socially responsible future leaders of the world. Our unique Mentoring Program is designed to inspire & empower every girl through holistic development and to enable her to contribute towards the peace, prosperity, and well-being of the family, the nation and the world at large. The uniqueness of our approach is in our personalized “Mentorship program “, a lifelong endeavor structured to cultivate every girl into a socially responsible professional and conscious leader for the world.
