I completed the Indicorps Fellowship by volunteering with a small, grassroots NGO in a remote, mountain-top, tribal village in Tamil Nadu. I assisted the NGO with implementing their first nutrition interventions in the community including introducing a new, locally sustainable technology wherein 2 clay pots, some sand, and water could be used to create a rural refrigerator. As much as I worked to create a sustainable impact on the lives of the villagers, the greatest impact was on me and how I learned to be a better leader and person. This is why I continue to be involved with mentoring current fellows.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the year that I spend as an Indicorps Fellow in a remote, mountain-top village in Tamil Nadu, India.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The ongoing life lessons that can be applied no matter what I do next.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

passionate, inspired, inspiring, humble, and talented.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the nature of service in India and the world. Perhaps inspire a generation to be the change they want to see in the world.

I was involved with Indicorps in the context of their fellowship program, during which I lived in rural India and worked with a local non-profit. I did not know really what to expect from this experience, and to be honest, I did not fully appreciate how special this organization is until I returned from to the States and spoke with a friend who had recently done Peace Corps. My friend's experience was disjointed, disorganized, and there was little support during the time in the host community. In contrast, Indicorps was supportive and inspiring in a non-smothering way that really allowed me to move ahead and out of my comfort zone while feeling like I had a safety net if I ever really need to bail. You won't find another group of folks so passionate about Change and Empowerment and Good and Respect and Honesty as the Indicorps staff (and this includes all the fellows I met and worked with as well). This experience shaped the rest of my life and I am on a completely different career path than before because of my work in India with Indicorps.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the openness to sharing and the idea that if we aren't yet comfortable with ourselves and happy in our soul, we can't help other people. The emphasis on self-development was enormously formative for me and allowed me to connect more to India.

I was an Indicorps Fellow in 2005-6. I had a tremendous experience. Indicorps facilitated my work with a local grassroots NGO in Delhi, India. I lived and worked as a type of barefoot-paralegal in a slum community, with no prior formal legal training. I attribute much of my success in that volunteer work to Indicorps unique and holistic approach to service.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

completing a one-year Indicorps Fellowship.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

open up the fellowship to people without Indian heritage.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the holistic approach to development, service, and personal growth.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

highly dedicated changemakers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide similar service opportunities to all major diaspora communities in the US.

Ways to make it better...

the organization had more and more permanent staff.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

maintaining a dual focus on effective service and leadership development in the Indian diaspora.

Indicorps is an organization with a strong central ethic. Its mission is simple: empower young people of Indian descent to commit to themselves and to their communities so that they can create change for themselves and in their communities. Indicorps has built a strong network of NGOs, support staff, and programming to implement this mission.
