Grassroutes is a fellowship for urban educated youth to spend a summer working with change-makers and social entrepreneurs, who are creating sustainable, significant impact in different parts of the country. During their stay, the fellows work on a pre-defined project and in addition, don the role of social journalists – researching, understanding and capturing unheard stories from the grassroots – of people, places, challenges, solutions, hope and above all, the impact that individuals can create.
Using mainstream and non-conventional media channels, the Fellows share these stories to inspire, challenge and creatively engage youth into social action, and serve as ambassadors of change in their respective communities.
Grassroutes program has three golden objectives:
Our vision is a create socially conscious young leaders who are committed to social change. Grassroutes is where the journey begins. It is a sensitizing experience which sets the context for a young person to look within and find answers and perspective on social problem and his role. It is aimed to help young people discover the changemaker within.
