About Ahimsa Fellowship


The Ahimsa Fellowship is a beacon of transformative leadership in animal protection, cultivating individuals to drive change across India. Over eight months, Fellows receive rigorous training to tackle critical animal protection issues effectively—they delve into diverse animal protection issues, developing tools to navigate complex advocacy landscapes; and are intensively trained to facilitate their leadership in advocacy efforts towards securing and implementing favourable animal protection policies.


The Ahimsa Fellowship emphasises on continual evolution, expanding with the Indian animal protection movement. It offers a unique learning opportunity for advocates, activists and persons inclined towards making a positive impact in the lives of animals to learn how to protect them through law enforcement and advocacy.


Forty-six committed Ahimsa Fellows have passed out from the previous three cohorts and are already making a difference, working with leading animal protection organisations in the country or launching their own initiatives. Starting from 2024, they established the Ahimsa Fellowship Incubation Cell that acts as a launchpad for innovative animal protection initiatives by our Fellows. It provides end-to-end support, from mentorship and funding to capacity building, helping them blossom into full-fledged organisations that strengthen the animal protection movement.


The Fellowship curriculum, curated with inputs from leading experts in the fields of animal protection. and the social and corporate sectors, emphasises principles of experiential and peer learning, leadership training, systems-building, and movement-building. Fellows undergo comprehensive capacity building in legal knowledge concerning animal laws, government procedures, law enforcement protocols, advocacy tools, and institutional structures. Additionally, they receive training in other pertinent advocacy modalities such as public outreach, field work and documentation, corporate engagement, media outreach and fundraising.


They invite applications from committed individuals who are motivated about contributing to the animal protection movement in India.


The Ahimsa Fellowship is powered by People For Animals Public Policy Foundation and People For Animals Uttarakhand. It is supported by Ahimsa Trust, Humane Society International – India, Mercy For Animals – India, Fish Welfare Initiative India, India Animal Fund, Kaivalya Education Foundation, Miranda House College (University of Delhi) and NALSAR University of Law.
