TCI Global

Fellowship/DPO Formation


TCI Fellowships are provided to support TCI members to build their work at the national level and be of influence within movements and the policy environment. In many countries, there are no organizations of persons with psychosocial disabilities and the national coalition does not have adequate representation from the constituency of persons with psychosocial disabilities.

The TCI Fellowship was started in 2017 to respond to this gap. Fellows learn through various interactive opportunities to sharpen their communication and strategies, manage programs, and contribute to the overall advocacy of TCI.

TCI Fellowships aim:

  • to find and mentor emerging national leaders and to consolidate the works of already active leaders.
  • to help them carry out national advocacy in an effective manner and expand their horizons of work.
  • support them to form an OPD (Organization of Persons with Disabilities) for consolidating advocacy and to mobilize their network.
  • to advocate with the Government and different stakeholders.
  • to liaise and partner with cross disability and intra-movements work.

to provide learning opportunities to the Fellows through international trainings, exposure to the UN human rights mechanisms, webinars, plenary meetings, Fellows’ learning meetings,  etc.
