Being ambitious for the sector, EnAble India has created “The Soapstone Fellowship” to scale sustainable positive change in the lives of persons with disabilities. This effort will require diverse and qualified human capital to commit to the cause and contribute to the impact.
The Fellowship program is designed in three stages:
- Pre-Fellowship: Search & Selection.
- Fellowship: Supporting a cohort of fellows across 12 months with structured program.
- Post-Fellowship: Career Pathways & Networking.
STAGE 1: Search & Selection is the process to identify the future changemakers among you. You will influence the disability sector at large through various means such as reaching the unreached, building a sustainable ecosystem for livelihoods of persons with disability, connecting the dots and bridging gaps, creating new livelihood models, and so on. Though the mission at hand is large, urgent and challenging, you will continue to work your way through adversity to reach your goal. Your deep sense of responsibility and vision guide you to use the Fellowship as a launchpad for your contributions.
STAGE 2: A cohort of 15 Fellows will enter into a year long fulltime program where you will acquire an enhanced perspective about the employability and employment of persons with disabilities while applying their business intelligence and domain expertise to the sector. With a blend of classroom teaching, individualized mentoring and hands-on learning across different programs at EnAble India, the Fellowship promises an experiential and reflective journey for you. The first batch of the Fellowship is scheduled to take place from October 2021 to September 2022. 
STAGE 3: The learning journey will equip Fellows to embark on a career pathway in the disability sector. By practising your professional talent and applying the Fellowship learning, you will have ample opportunities to make a difference in the lives of persons with disabilities and contribute to the growth of the sector. You will be able to pursue a career in the disability sector and be part of the Soapstone community.
 While the Soapstone Fellowship is an in-person and onsite program, we are closely monitoring the current global situation of the pandemic as we approach the start date. Depending on the circumstances, there is a possibility for the 2021-22 Fellowship to take place online or as a blended learning model (online and onsite).
