Mobilizing Changemakers for Our Sustainable Future


The Asia Foundation Development Fellows program is a dynamic and multifaceted learning program offered each year to enhance leadership skills, Asian development knowledge, professional networks, and international exposure for Asian professionals. Fellows are highly talented individuals, under age 40, who have demonstrated outstanding commitment, integrity, and leadership potential within their professional fields and within their larger community. Two of the 2019 Asia Foundation Development Fellows are Akshat Singhal, a gender equality social entrepreneur from India, and Sohara Mehroze, an environmental journalist from Bangladesh.
