Call for Applications: Kuviraa Ambassadors Program 2023
Updated: Apr 17
Kuviraa, (which means courageous woman), is a non-partisan initiative set up in October 2020 with the aim to strengthen democracy by increasing political engagement and leadership for future and first time voters that identify as girls and women. Through our engagement with young girls, we also hope to make politics an aspirational career choice for these young girls.
We have less than 400 days before India’s 2024 general elections, we hope to see a record breaking number of first time voters, approximately half of these will identify as women. Through are fellowship, we are working to prepare future and first time voters with leadership skills and to equip them to be active citizens and engage in India's democratic processes.
