The AIF Clinton Fellowship program encourages Fellows to write on multi-disciplinary topics of pressing concern. Fellows have produced numerous publications over the years, in their motto to serve, learn, and lead. Select Fellows from the 2018-19 cohort collaborated to create the second volume of People Powered Partnerships: Leveraging Locally-Driven Solutions for Sustainable Development.
Volume 2 features compelling examples of how the AIF Clinton Fellowship has supported innovative, localized solutions in the 2018-19 program year. The five essays in this book represent inspiring models narrated by U.S. and Indian Fellows who have served across India on projects ranging from Adivasi educational access to livelihoods inclusion for women with disabilities.
The editors, Andrew Kerr and Prashant Anand, alumni from the AIF Clinton Fellowship, in their Introduction to the volume, seek to bring a deep understanding of the complexities on the ground and a true appreciation of the power of service for social impact.
In a vibrantly constructed Preface, Paul Glick, the Executive Director of RIST, relates his days as a Peace Corps Volunteer to the immersive nature of the AIF Clinton Fellowship program. RIST generously added the program for two years to its roster of partnerships with AIF, sponsoring XX Fellows. Paul Glick strongly endorses the program saying, “The stories you will find within these pages are an absolute treat. Get ready to begin to understand some of the vast issues that Fellows and Community Development Organizations encounter on a daily basis and the solutions that they come up with.”
