    Why does the Fellowship take two years to complete and not months?

    We believe that in two years, Fellows would have honed the necessary skills to go out and end educational inequity having experienced it first hand in these schools.

    During the first year of the Fellowship, Fellows hone their teaching skills while establishing respect and trust among various stakeholders within the school community and the students.
