Strengthen your leadership journey with our Kuviraa Ambassador Program (KAP)

Updated: Jul 2

Applications to the July 2024 Cohort of our Kuviraa Ambassadors Program (KAP) are now live!



As India welcomes a newly formed coalition government following the recent election results, we are thrilled to announce the fourth cohort of our Flagship Ambassadors program! Drawing from the successes and lessons of our previous cohorts, we are proud to present an enhanced program for girls and non-binary individuals across India, ages 14 - 20.


The recent election has not only altered the political landscape but also highlighted the crucial role of youth in shaping our democracy. With a significant number of first-time voters, including many girls and young women, there is an ever-growing need for inclusive political engagement. Our flagship report "Talk Politics to Me," which surveyed over 600 Indian adolescents and youth (ages 14-22), revealed that girls are often less engaged in politics compared to boys and feel they have fewer opportunities to participate. Kuviraa aims to address this gap by providing a safe space for adolescent girls and young women to discuss politics and interact with women public leaders across parties and institutions.


To this end, this virtual fellowship will run from July 19th to August 18th, 2024, with workshop sessions between 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM IST on weekends. The program will give you an opportunity to:


  • Understand our democracy through our parliament and constitution 

  • Reflect on value-based politics and the importance of a representative democracy

  • Participate in team based problem-solving and simulation exercises

  • Have a Q&A with expert speakers, including public leaders, non-profit and policy professionals

  • Build strong bonds and learn from other participants who have different lived experiences than you do but are passionate about the same issues.


Participants from previous cohorts have reported significant improvements in critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, public speaking, and planning skills. Upon completion, all participants will receive a certificate of participation and, if required, a letter of recommendation from our founder.
