The Pratiti Fellowship comes to Jaipur!

After the Delhi phase of Pratiti received an overwhelming response post launch in July, 2015, we are expanding our horizons and Jaipur is the next city on the list!

If you are a resident of Jaipur in the 18-30 age group and are passionate about identifying, understanding and challenging Gender Based Violence (GBV), APPLY NOW!

Initiated by People for Parity Foundation (PfP), New Delhi, with the support of UN-HABITAT and the Narotam Sekhsaria Foundation, Pratiti is a unique and transformative fellowship on Gender Based Violence (GBV) for young people hailing from diverse backgrounds and communities. 

Applicants for Pratiti should be residents of Jaipur and ideally be in the 18-30 age bracket. They can be from any background and representative of any color of the rainbow, including people who may be straight, gay, lesbian, transsexual, transgender, hijra, survivors or even sex workers.

The Jaipur phase of the journey will take place between December 2015 to April 2016.

Over the course of these 6 months, 20 participants will be selected to participate in
  • An intensive 3-day workshop
  • Action projects on issues affecting their lives and communities
  • Regular community meetings for sharing and reflection
  • A co-created closure and finale event which will celebrate the journey
Through powerful experiential processes, each of the participants will be empowered to:
  • Become an empathetic leader for gender equality
  • Use sharing, healing and facilitation as powerful tools for change
  • Understand what gender-based violence is and how one can challenge it
If you are a resident of Jaipur in the 18-30 age bracket and share a passion for challenging Gender Based Violence in your own lives, communities and in the society around you, click here to visit the Pratiti Applications page and apply today (forms available in both Hindi and English)!

Pratiti is a fully funded initiative and will not require any expenditure nor full-time involvement from the participants.
