About Ahimsa Fellowship
The Ahimsa Fellowship is a comprehensive 9-month programme that has been designed to bolster the capacity of fellows to emerge as effective animal advocates. It aims at creating a network of individuals who have been rigorously trained on effectively working on and advocating for animal protection issues of the country.
By the end of the 9-month duration, Ahimsa Fellows become adept at working closely with state governments, district administrations and law enforcement agencies to enforce animal protection laws in India – one of the core aspects of the Fellowship.
The Ahimsa Fellowship curriculum has been curated with inputs from leading experts in the fields of animal protection and the social and corporate sectors. It offers a unique learning opportunity for advocates, activists and persons inclined towards animals to learn how to protect animals through law enforcement and advocacy.
The Ahimsa Fellows will be intensively trained to understand in depth the existing legal and policy regime of the country. This will facilitate their leadership in advocacy efforts towards securing and implementing favourable animal protection policies.
The Fellows will also be trained in Public Outreach and Awareness, Academic Research, Report and Proposal Writing, Field Visits and Documentation, Corporate Outreach, Fundraising etc.
They invite applications from committed individuals who are motivated about contributing to the animal welfare/animal rights movement in India.
The Ahimsa Fellowship is powered by People For Animals Public Policy Foundation and People For Animals Uttarakhand. It is supported by Ahimsa Trust, Humane Society International – India, Mercy For Animals – India, Fish Welfare Initiative India, Kaivalya Education Foundation, Miranda House College (University of Delhi) and NALSAR University of Law.
