The Global Exchange Program puts into practice The Deshpande Foundation's vision for global exchange specific to development and innovation. The concept allows for exchange - in both directions- improving and addressing the solutions that solve the developing world's most intractable challenges. Fellows work to address challenges at NGOs working in the fields of Agriculture, Livelihood, Education and Health. Ideal candidates have experience in these areas but also add value by bringing skills from the IT sector, business (marketing and management), finance (accounting) and other globally applicable skills.
- Developing a new system to increase the efficiency of NGOs using microfinance
- Creating a strategic plan for increasing the amount of high quality social entrepreneurs in the region
- Developing a replicable self-financing model for a graduate finishing school
- Producing documentaries showcasing the work of the Deshpande Foundation and its partner NGOs
