About Fellowships

Plustrust’s Fellowship for Young Change makers.

Plustrust wishes to encourage the enthusiasm of young people who wish to address social environmental and related issues and problems that bother them.  Idealism and passion for change is rarely supported and those with the courage of conviction often need pragmatic support to make the change they wish to see.  Plustrust sees opportunities to walk in step with these inspiring individuals especially as they start off their journey.

In order to encourage such youth, Plustrust provides fellowships and supports them to take their work forward. We do this through fellowships at the pre-incubation stage and through events from time to time.

We walk with those who choose new paths!

Themes for Fellowship

Plustrust works on themes that were close to Gowri Sukanya’s heart:

  1. Inclusive Education

  2. Animal Welfare

Our focus is on supporting young people with a desire to test out ideas for improving the lives of people around them. We do this through fellowships a the pre-incubation stage and through events from time to time. We are taking up direct projects to find ways to improve implementation of the RTE Act especially through strengthening SMCs. We are open to discuss all new ideas and themes that may arise from time to time.

We support projects taken up by young people on our Themes for Action. Support will be through a close relationship with the project holder and include one or more of these aspects (as required):

  • Guidance to develop project idea
  • Initial support in starting off
  • Some financial support as seed capital
  • Organising further types of support when needed
  • Networking and contacts relevant for the project

The mentors, coaches for this work will be identified and briefed by Plustrust.
