Duration of the project:

6 month long program

Place of the event:

Nepal, India, Kenya

Objective:

Support young leaders in global issues solutions

Participants:

9 postgraduate students: Nepal-4, India-3, Kenya-2

Description:

The Orbis Fellowship is the pinnacle of Orbis' global leadership development. In this dynamic postgraduate program, Fellows were challenged to teach, research, and develop global solutions. Fellows went through an intensive training process prior to being placed in India, Kenya or Nepal.

During their six-month stay abroad, Fellows worked in high school classrooms facilitating the Orbis Global Leadership Curriculum and worked with their students to initiate solutions to global problems in their respective local communities. Each of the classrooms was connected through the Internet, allowing for a global dialog about the economic, environmental, health and social issues discussed in the classroom.

In addition to classroom facilitation, Fellows identified and researched global issues in their local context. Orbis provided networks and resources to assist in carrying out their research. Fellows have conducted research on topics such as malnutrition, literacy, and access to healthcare through micro-finance.

After returning to the USA , Fellows worked on building a Blueprint for Action around the research they conducted while abroad. The Blueprints are roadmaps that bring together their experience on the ground with their ideas for global solutions. Orbis supported Fellows in lifting their Blueprints off the ground by promoting their projects through multiple channels.
