What if 12,500 engineers committed suicide every year?
What if doctors earned average Rs. 1,666 a month?
What if teachers were forced to travel to cities and turn themselves into cheap labor?
Would you say there was something fundamentally wrong with the system?
This is the story of a quarter billion farmers & artisans in India.
We believe in a better future.
And we’re determined to create it.
About the Journey
Join the human-centered service learning journey that is designed for the growth of farmers, artisans and weavers in rural India and build capacity with young leaders in urban India.
With a vision to extend outreach of agriculture education by harnessing convergence of One Straw Revolution, Small Is Beautiful, and use of digital technology to build market linkages; University of Commons invites young Indians to bring about change in lives of small farmers & land-less farmers. The curriculum starts with immersions for general understanding of agriculture ecosystem clubbed with action-research in gap areas. It’s a non-classroom, action led program eventually leading to building working solutions before the program ends. Participants have an opportunity to pitch for agri-startup incubation and funding.
The program is open for full-time and part-time applicants for December 2018 and June 2019 Batch.
We have come this far, in the city in search of good education, work and opportunities. In this journey towards self-development, prosperity and personal growth, have we forgotten to give back to society?
Imagine, if given the opportunity to do good and do well, how would this journey look like?
Choice is yours!
