Fellows For Equality

MSC Supports Local Community Members

MSC supports the development of scavenger communitites and their individual members. For this reason we identify young leaders from the communities and support them for a period of one year.

Our fellows live and work at different locations. Working hand in hand with the committee of the local Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Community Resource Centre, they are responsible for self-chosen projects. In five workshops, MSC guides the Fellows For Equality in areas of resource mobilization, basic development, and community management and training.

During their one-year fellowship, the Fellows For Equality are assigned a mentor to support them in terms of defining goals and measuring progress of their work. After their year as a Fellow For Equality, the young leaders will become senior fellows to support younger community members on their journey.

How Fellows For Equality Work

Our fellows are expected to take one community project during the time of their fellowship. The following list gives examples of the areas of work:

  • Improving educational outcomes of the community.
  • Identifying and improving employability of qualified youth in the community through convergence and partnerships.
  • Strengthening community based organisation and initiate livelihood initiatives around micro enterprises
  • Fundraising and sustainability of Community Resource Centre
  • Encouragement of local communities for development
  • Develop cooperations for improved employability and entrepeneurship within the community
  • link with the community and other grassroots movements for the eradication of manual scavenging
