SamVidhi’s Fundraiser for COVID-19 Relief Efforts through a Mentorship Programme:
India is currently in the midst of the devastating second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. With an aim to contribute towards the fight against COVID-19 and to aid relief efforts being undertaken by NGOs, SamVidhi has come up with a unique one-of-a-kind program – a fundraiser cum mentorship programme. Our endeavour and aim is to provide mentorship and guidance to law students and aspirants over the duration of the forthcoming 6-months. The mentorship shall span the areas of:
- academic planning,
- CV building,
- legal research and writing,
- preparation for competitive examinations,
- applications for graduate programmes (LLMs, PhDs etc.) and scholarships,
- internships and placements at firms (both Indian and Foreign),
- LAMP Fellowship,
- Careers with Civil Societies or International Organisations,
- life in litigation, non-lawyering after a degree in law, and more from legal professionals who have charted these journeys and are continuing to do so.
All the funds raised by SamVidhi through this Mentorship Programme shall be contributed directly to the Uday Foundation. Uday Foundation is a not-for-profit organization based in New Delhi which is working towards COVID-19 relief through three drives: distribution of oxygen concentrators, wellness kits, and dry rations.

Terms and Conditions:
1. There is no separate application fee for the Mentorship Programme. Prospective mentees may simply register through the link in the Google Form after having made a donation (Minimum Amount: INR 1,000/-). The screenshot of the payment must be attached to the Form.
2. Each mentee shall receive between 3-5 hours of individualized/personalized assistance. The dates and timings for these sessions shall be fixed by mutual convenience of the mentor and the mentee. Some of these sessions/hours may involve group-work in a small pool of mentees. Further, Mentors shall share their preferred mode of communication with their mentees, and they may be reached out for doubts to be clarified in a reasonable time frame on such platform.
3. If, at any point, the mentor allocated to you has a personal emergency or professional commitment which makes it difficult for them to give you time, one of the other mentors will help out. Please contact SamVidhi should this happen.
4. If you are interested in more than 1 area of mentorship, you may request your mentor to connect you with someone who also has that experience, and they shall try. However, most mentors have a wide range and can help out with many projects.
5. If INR 1000/- acts as a barrier to your participation, please write to us or call us, and let them know. We shall try and figure out alternatives so as not to allow these barriers to be major impediments.
6. The mentees have no choice in who they are allocated as mentors from the list. The selection shall be made on the basis of the congruence of interests.
We look forward to taking this initiative forward with all of you, and hope that this shall be contributory in the relief efforts towards COVID-19. Excited to hear from you!
