Like the name suggests, this Internship Program is a unique opportunity to engage in social change work that is rooted in experience, empathy and solidarity.
Anubhuti has been formed in 2016 by a young woman activist, who then had 16 years’ experience of grounded, grassroot as well as state and national-level work with youth, girls, women, communities, administration, political leaders, campaigns and movements. Over the last two years, the organisation has reached over 10000 people with its mission of socio-political youth leadership that leads to a more just, equitable and democratic society.
This year we annouce our first Internship Program where interns shall first-hand engage with socio-political processes of our country and be part of ways to bring about actual change against discrimination, violence, marginalisation, unequal development opportunities, unemployment, state neglect, poor administration, biased media, caste divides, patriarchal norms and so on. Following are the details:
