Twenty grassroots women with potential from the drought prone districts of Maharashtra with potential have been selected as Unnati Fellows through an extensive process on the basis of their vision and passion for transforming their communities. The Fellowship will entitle them to 12-month financial support in the form of a monthly stipend along with intensive mentoring and support from the SSP team and ecosystem.
You can help the Unnati Fellows in bringing about lasting change in their communities by donating to the Unnati Fellowship. It is your opportunity to mentor and guide these change-makers to implement the solutions to the difficult challenges that they have identified. You will also have the opportunity to visit these communities and see the remarkable work being done by the Fellows.
