The Indian education system and its curriculum/frameworks are unable to provide the necessary content, learning and context for students to get enough opportunity and inspiration to take up challenging projects that directly address problems faced by societies such as sustainability, localisation, wholesome living. As a result, students end-up taking employment in large organisations that are too slow and beauracratic to effectively tackle local/community problems, but also are unable to provide a fulfilling career choice to the youth of today.
The JMS Fellowship program is a step in this direction. By providing college student a platform for pragmatic understanding of some pioneering projects, social enterprises, community organisations and startups.
Objectives of the Program
To help youth of Jaipur get a holistic exposure to projects and initiatives by organizations or individuals in various areas of interests; and move beyond just the conventional structures of learning and education.
To give youth of Jaipur the exposure to issues of key concerns and challenges in building a city that is creative, sustainable, happy, sensitive and yet modern; hoping that they themselves become the change that they would like to see in the city.
