Rise Up, in partnership with Cummins Inc., is launching a call for applications for the Gender Equity Initiative (GEI) in Maharashtra, India. We invite applications from civil society leaders and NGOs based in the state of Maharashtra to participate in Rise Up’s intensive Advocacy and Leadership Accelerator Workshop.

GEI is a non-stipended fellowship program offering a no-cost intensive week-long Leadership and Advocacy Accelerator Workshop, which will enable participants to strengthen their leadership skills and learn new strategies to advocate to improve the lives of girls and women in their communities. Leaders selected to participate in GEI will have the opportunity to apply to receive funding to launch an advocacy strategy through Rise Up’s Social Justice Fund. As Rise Up Fellows, participants join a dynamic global network of diverse leaders working to improve the lives of women and girls everywhere.

Hi Hannah, would you be able to share with me how you got involved with social empowerment work in India? I am striving to get into this field but don't know how to start.
