Work in Dignity Fellowship
The fellowship aims to provide effective training, mentoring, and financial support to committed individuals already working in the space of labor rights.
Aajeevika Bureau has launched the ‘Work in Dignity Fellowship’ with the vision of seeding and strengthening labor rights action in uncovered locations and laying the foundation for subsequent, longer-term work. The fellowship aims to provide effective training, mentoring, and financial support to committed individuals already working in the space of labor rights.
The program is meant to be a 2-yearlong transformative journey for both – the fellows and the communities they work with.
The fellowship will involve two types of placement of fellows
- Those who are already engaged in independent work in the space of labor rights can choose to continue working in the same location where their work is based in.
- Fellows who will be moving into unfamiliar geographies and initiating new work shall be placed with a partner (host) organization. The host organization will act as a local support system, providing fellows with access to relevant stakeholders and structured settings to grow their work.
What does the fellowship offer?
- Training curriculum designed and delivered by veteran activists and practitioners, with structured inputs on topics ranging from informality to legal aid and social protection.
- Consistent mentorship from experienced practitioners.
- Access to a wide network of activists, practitioners, and researchers working in the space of labor and migration.
- 2 to 3 years of experience working at the grassroots level.
- Your age should be between 25 to 40.
- Candidates with a Bachelor’s degree are preferred. Those without a degree but holding substantial ground experience are also eligible to apply.
Women and people with marginalized identities are encouraged to apply.
