AIF Summit to Benefit Rural India

In addition, since 2003, AIF has co-invested in developing AIF-Ashoka fellows. This partnership has enabled AIF-Ashoka fellows to grow their innovative social enterprises. Since 2006, three AIF partners have been selected as Schwab India Nonprofit Leaders of the Year.


6b5e232cf44c50f0bb3f27c6a8f70b6c-3AIF is also working at developing future NGO leaders and social entrepreneurs through the AIF William J. Clinton Fellowship for Service in India. Since India has been building on its economic and social gains of the last decade, social entrepreneurs will play a key role in driving innovation and to tackle persistent and intractable problems.

The organization’s summit, “The Transformative Potential of Social Entrepreneurship,” will foster dialogue among interested individuals and institutions about social entrepreneurship in India. Panelists include senior leaders from Skoll Foundation and Draper Richards and noted social entrepreneurs, such as Ved Arya, founder of Srijan, and Brij Kothari, noted Indian academic and social enterpreneur. AIF summits are an opportunity for like-minded individuals to convene and hear from cutting-edge thinkers about development issues in India.
