The Fellowship begins with a year-long fully-funded leadership programme, where Fellows remain in their role while taking part in a series of immersive seminars, workshops, and group practice. This is where practical skills meet moral imagination – and the programme is designed to equip Fellows with the tools, mindset, and community to tackle poverty and injustice in their communities.
The fellows are extraordinary leaders who dare to embrace the difficult journey of social change.
