Why apply for the fellowship?
Many organizations work on different social issues in Province no. 1, but hardly any of them are working to promote the values of economic freedom and prosperity and solve the issues through an entrepreneurial approach. Young people are the hope and possibilities for any society; Bikalpa aspires to educate young people who can vocalize the existing social, political, and economic problems and be active as responsible citizens.
