Bangalore is calling out for social entrepreneurs

Create a lasting positive impact while savouring a new cultural experience.

Pollinate Energy is offering a fellowship program for students with a passion in renewable energy, altruism and self-improvement. As a social business, Pollinate Energy trains and helps micro-entrepreneurs (“Pollinators”) to bring clean energy solutions to people living in Bangalore’s slums.

Together with a trained Pollinator, you will be working in a team and targeting areas such as product development, communications and fundraising. You will also receive training sessions before and after you are leaving for India.

This fellowship is a great opportunity to enhance your career outlook and to make new friendships, like what RMIT Sustainable Design student Glenda Yiu has experienced. “I was perfectly matched with a Pollinator that gave me real-world perspective. But above all, it was the personal growth I gained from those around me. I was surrounded by inspirational, positive people”, said Glenda.

Applications for the December 2013 and February 2014 intakes close on 6 September 2013.
