Our Story

Who We Are.

Our Inspiration

Majority of people, from some extend, recognize the need for social change. But it is not often that empathy translates into tangible act. The underlying cause is the fervently-held belief that, their ‘individual action’ is inconsequential in bringing about a larger social change. We believe, that, to make the individual-actions meaningful, they have to be channelized in an organized way. We derive our inspiration from the famous quote of Margaret Mead – “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Our Approach

To INFORM young people about the issues and concerns those affect their everyday living.  To EMPOWER young people by imparting required skills and exposures and also provide them opportunities to develop to achieve their fullest potential.To INVOLVE young people in all the stages of their own personal development and that of their communities

Our Vision

The key words in the vision statement are that young people have to be self-reliant so that they have the ability to find a livelihood for themselves which leads to a contended life (this is dependent on person to person as contented life is a very personal perception). Once they are contended with their own lives, they will be in a position to even think about others which will lead to the path of contributing to development and ultimately become a leader.

Our Mission

Our mission is to work towards a society where youth can achieve their fullest potential. This statement breaks down the vision in to tangible and simple terms. The most important thing that is needed to make a person self-reliant is to make him/her realize their inner potentials and the person has to know the ways and means to utilize the same.
