Asia Foundation Development Fellows Travel to Singapore and Nepal
April 1, 2015
During the first two weeks of March, the 2015 class of Asia Foundation Development Fellows traveled to Singapore and Nepal for training and on-the-ground development experience. Asia Foundation Development Fellows are highly talented individuals under age 40 who have demonstrated outstanding commitment, integrity, and leadership potential in their professional fields and the larger community. Now in its second year, the Development Fellows program provides highly qualified, young professionals from Asia with an unparalleled opportunity to strengthen their leadership skills and gain in-depth knowledge of Asia’s critical development challenges.
The 12 Fellows, representing 12 countries across Asia, gathered first in Singapore for a leadership training workshop at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore. In Nepal, the Fellows engaged with leading Nepalese development innovators including UN officials, members of Nepal’s Supreme Court, the Global Shapers Community of Kathmandu, and the Niti Foundation. The Fellows also traveled to Dhikur Pokhari to observe Foundation-supported community mediation activities and training programs. View slideshow.
