Facebook has announced 15 participants from India for its Community Accelerator Programme which will help the selected community leaders with training, mentorship and funding for an initiative that extends their community's impact.
This year, the social network looks forward to awarding up to $40,000 per community through its implementation partner T-hub in India.
Selected communities from India are UNIMO Universe of Moms, Genshin Impact Asia, Indian Birds, Balcony Gardening Tips, Telugu Moms Network, The Order of Pen, Office Memes For Working Teens (OMFWT), WeWomen, Nishamadhulika Recipe Group (Official), Parent Tribe by SuperBottoms, Battlegrounds Mobile India, Depression and Anxiety support, Dog Lover, Delhi Foodiez and Backpackers & Travelers India (BATI).
"The programme will help community leaders learn how to create an engaging community using various content formats. A key experience this year will be for participants to identify an initiative that will help deepen their community's impact by mobilizing members around a goal and creating a development plan around it to be executed in 2023," said the company.
These community leaders will also get an opportunity to collaborate with advocates and other leaders in the community-building ecosystem to bring their ideas to life.
Community leaders will learn from experts through a customized curriculum and personalized coaching, so they can organise and strengthen their communities, said Facebook.
