The Ahimsa Fellowship

Compassionate Outcomes Through Advocacy

The animal protection movement in India requires trained professionals who can become welfare-leaders across states and districts.
Embrace a unique opportunity to champion for meaningful change for animals!

The Ahimsa Fellowship Program aims at creating a network of effective animal welfare leaders adept at working closely with state governments and district administrations to enforce animal protection laws in India.

Animal welfare can be achieved if trained professionals assist the Governments in fulfilling their statutory duties vide systemic apparatuses like State Animal Welfare Boards, Societies For The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Infirmaries, Slaughterhouse Monitoring Committees, Animal Birth Control Monitoring Committees etc.

Fellows will be intensively trained to understand in-depth the existing legal and policy regime. This will facilitate their leadership in advocacy efforts towards securing and implementing favorable animal welfare policies.

We invite applications from passionate individuals who are motivated about contributing to the animal welfare/ animal rights movement in India.
