Indicorps, an NGO started by siblings Sonal, Roopal and Anand Shah, is a great way for anyone that wants to learn about the changes occurring in India, and even more, be a part of these changes.

The deadline is March 15, 2009 (sorry for the late notice but I’ve been traveling).
Here’s their blurb:
Indicorps offers prestigious grassroots public service fellowship to implement sustainable development projects with community-based organizations across India. As a total-immersion leadership program, Indicorps will encourage you to explore your role as a catalyst of change. Fellowship projects promote both personal growth and collective action towards a secular India that is inclusive, peaceful, and participatory. The program requires a minimum commitment of one year.
The Fellowship starts on August 15, 2009. Housing and food are provided and a small stipend will cover basic living expenses.
