Kabir is an environmental lawyer supporting communities to secure their rights to their territories and cultures. He is one of the founders and the co-director of Natural Justice, an organization of environmental law practitioners working in Africa, Asia and Latin America to ensure that community concerns are effectively represented in the development and implementation of domestic and international law and policy.
Kabir is currently focusing on supporting communities to develop biocultural community protocols to assert their stewardship rights to their lands and traditional knowledge.
Twice a year we award a number of small grants to a collection of social change agents, no strings attached, in support of their work. We call these Flash Grants and recipients are selected based on nominations from our Fellows. Each award is worth $5,000.
At the heart of our co-investment fellowship model is the principle that Fellows continue to invest in their own ideas. The Foundation amplifies the Fellow’s investment by matching it at least tenfold, along with covering the cost of their time for the year.
The figures you see here do not reflect each Fellow’s fellowship year funding, but rather the funds unlocked within our financial year, as the fellowship years start either March or September and Fellows are not required to spend the available funds proportionately throughout the year.
