If you missed the road less traveled, here is your chance to correct it.

As a Villgro Fellow, you will work with a social enterprise for 1 year, applying your skills to create real impact in rural India. In charting a better road map for the social enterprise, you may find your own Road Less Traveled.

What is the Villgro Fellowship?
Villgro works with social entrepreneurs who are transforming rural India with innovative ideas such as bee-keeping that increases farm yield and financial returns for farmers, Cost-effective anaemia testing machines to prevent maternal mortality, to name a few. Your expertise helps the social enterprise at a critical stage in its journey. Working hands-on with the social enterprises opens your mind to different possibilities. Villgro will provide training and financial support.
