Mentors

We’ve learnt over the past decade how intricately animal protection is linked to our welfare and that of the planet. We need people from all walks of life to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to make this planet a better place for all animals including non human ones.

The Ahimsa Fellowship is a first of its kind initiative which will prepare you to stand up and advocate for animals. This is a unique opportunity to learn from the most experienced.

One of the most valuable things we need right now, to protect the welfare of animals, is talented individuals. Ahimsa Fellowship is an excellent way for a passionate individual to get started and know what took most of us years to figure out, through the course of the fellowship. It is an opportunity unlike any we’ve had before in the animal protection space.
