Pollinate Energy Fellowship for Youth - Apply!

Pollinate Energy Fellowship: The Pollinate Energy Fellowship offers a hands-on work experience to youth with energy and willingness to support underprivileged population, in the social business and clean energy industries while being immersed in Indian culture.

 306 million people in India live without access to electricity, which means they rely on fossil fuels, such as kerosene, for light. This is the 25% (1/4) of India’s population. Young People based outside India have an opportunity to help these people improve their living standard through Pollinate Energy Fellowship.

The fellows will help train a new Pollinator and spend each day working side by side with them and the Indian counterparts in the local communities. They will use their skills and knowledge to use to support Pollinate Energy’s plans to grow on working bee projects.
Pollinate Energy is a social business helping the urban poor in India ‘leapfrog’ to clean and affordable technology, like solar lights and improved cook-stoves. They do this by training and developing a local entrepreneur (Pollinator) to sell and distribute these products. The Pollinator then runs a long-lasting business in these communities to continue to reach more and more people.
