Support 52 Parindey Fellowship and co-create pathways for pursuing Alivelihoods!!

The youth today are facing plural challenges such as lack of meaningful and fulfilling employment opportunities, environmental degradation and depletion of resources. More and more youth are looking for livelihood options that they align spiritually and emotionally with, livelihoods that make them feel “alive” as they pursue them.

The 52 Parindey Fellowship is an 18 weeks long programme for youth exploring meaningful and regenerative livelihoods (Alivelihoods), and dreaming of a sustainable, equitable, and just world.

The larger intention of the fellowship is to educate youth about the various Alivelihoods oriented towards social and ecological well-being by documenting best practices, sharing pathways to pursue them, providing access to a network of mentors, and creating spaces for dialogue among the masses. This will act as a catalyst in making these Alivelihoods more visible and acceptable among the youth at large, preparing a foundation for them to pursue the Alivelihoods of their interest.


For the fellows, it serves as an immersive on-ground learning experience to explore Alivelihoods of their choice by travelling, living with and documenting the life journeys of Alivelihood practitioners (Parindeys) engaged in socially and ecologically conscious pursuits. It provides them with practical understanding in the domain areas of their interest (such as Conservation, Education, Food Systems, etc.). It will create avenues for their personal growth as the fellows lead a journey of self-exploration, helping them understand ground realities, shaping their worldviews, and paving way to take affirmative actions.
The 8 Fellows have commenced their journey to travel to 52 locations across India documenting the life stories of 52 Parindeys. The programme will run from 10th September, 2021 to 15th January, 2022.


It aims to celebrate the journeys of Alivelihood practitioners (Parindeys) and bring to the forefront their personal journeys, the Alivelihoods they are engaged in, and the emerging importance of their work in today’s world.
