Indicorps is a non-partisan, non-religious, non-profit organization that encourages Indians around the world to actively participate in India’s progress. Indicorps’ programs are designed to build principled leadership, empower visionaries, inspire collective action, and unite India towards a common vision for the nation by productively engaging Indians around the world with the development of the country that defines their identity.
The core fellowship program aims to inspire a new generation of global Indian leaders through structured one- and two-year grassroots service opportunities in India. Indicorps firmly believes that contributing to the development of India at a grassroots level will help Indians around the world better understand their heritage, explore ways to strengthen the global Indian community, and encourage civic responsibility at home in their respective countries. Indicorps projects embody a firm and demonstrated commitment to promoting peace, inclusiveness, secularism, and the empowerment of India’s people by encouraging action and understanding at the most grassroots levels.
Further, Indicorps aims to strengthen non-profit organizations in India. Indicorps recognizes that building capacity within local Indian organizations is essential to sustainable change. By placing fellows with small, high-impact grassroots organizations, Indicorps aims to bring new skills and perspectives to our partners. During their fellowship, Indicorps participants dedicate themselves to understanding the beneficiary communities and developing the strength of local partner organizations that have a long-term stake in the projects.
