Many people are searching for what they want to do in life, however, kanthari is for those who have already decided that they want to start an organization/NGO that makes a difference.
I am grateful to kanthari (Paul & Sab) and the team who gave me this great opportunity to develop my skills to contribute to our community.
kanthari welcomes applicants over 22 years of age (we don’t have an upper age limit) who have overcome significant life challenges ranging from vision impairment, disability, poverty, war, discrimination, and exploitation. They could also be witnesses to social situations they wish to change so others do not suffer. They should have a passion to make the world a better place and the strength to be forces of good rather than be victims of circumstance.
Applicants must speak and understand basic English and have basic computer skills.
kanthari’s twelve-month program (7 months residential in Kerala, India and 5 months online mentorship support) will help participants develop all necessary skills to succeed as social change-makers so they can start and run own NGO’s, Social enterprises or social ventures. To understand what the kanthari course is all about, read all about the curriculum here and also learn about the meaning of the different kanthari colours here.
Selected participants will qualify for a scholarship provided by our donors to cover the training fee and accommodation.
Graduates of the program will have access to a network of change-makers from over 45 countries worldwide.
The next kanthari course starts in April 2023 ONLINE and in May 2023 on campus in Kerala.
