Why Youth?

By 2020, India will be the youngest country in the world, with a median age of 29. Are we prepared to meet the needs of this burgeoning young community?
120 million young people reach working age every year, but lack job security. 
According to WHO, 20% of the young population are at risk of developing mental illnesses. India ranks 6th in the world for highest rate of suicides among youth. 
Against a backdrop of increasing urbanisation, migration, religious polarisation, gender discrimination, caste atrocities and environmental degradation, young people carry the burden of being the “leaders of tomorrow” while having little support for where they are today.

We don’t just “serve young people in need”.

We partner with young people to promote social change.
