April 27, 2011 – Our RAMP India partners at Villgro are taking applications for their fellowships in rural India.
The Villgro Fellowship is a one-year program that aims to cultivate a pipeline of future leaders, who have the social commitment, leadership and operational skills to bring about permanent change in rural India, using principles of social entrepreneurship, while filling a critical talent gap within Villgro’s incubatee companies. In the last three years, 14 Villgro Fellows have brought about sustainable change in the lives of the rural poor, inspiring many more to join them in this movement for change.

Over 8 years Villgro (formerly Rural Innovations Network or RIN) has incubated more than 40 innovations and significantly impacted a little over 350,000 lives in rural India. The unique Villgro model that encompasses everything right from scouting for ideas to displaying the finished product or service in the villages makes Villgro the one-stop destination for many social innovators.
