By 2020, the average age in India will be 29 and it is set to become the world’s youngest country with 64% of its population falling under the working age bracket. This youth bulge holds out prospects as well as challenges for a developing country like India. Whether India’s youth will be a blessing or a curse – a demographic dividend or a disaster – firmly rests in the hands of society which educates them.

Various studies and surveys have indicated the challenges faced by youth in India. They could be summarized as follows:

  1. Role and value conflicts

  2. Pressures to perform in academics

  3. Career decisions and unemployment

  4. The pressure of living standard

  5. Adjustment to emotions and sexuality

These issues are deeply connected to

  1. An Identity Crisis: Who am I?

  2. Lack of self-confidence and low self-esteem: I am worthless

  3. A sense of hopelessness and lack of purpose: Where am I going?

  4. Confusion and ambiguity concerning moral issues: What is right and wrong?

We intend to address these issues by conducting educational workshops for youth.

 

We are looking for youth groups, colleges, organizations, etc. in Marathwada region to partner with for the same.

We believe India is a multicultural country with huge diversity, the only thing which binds us together as a nation is our Indian constitution.

Hence, Inculcating the constitutional human values among citizen becomes very important.

To help this process we think the teachers have a huge role to play. They nurture the next generation of our nation. Even if they are academically good but if they lack the social sensitivity, they will end up nurturing clever but corrupt minds.

We observe various teacher training programs which provide subject knowledge and skills. But, to deal with a classroom full of children with the varied social background one must be aware of the mosaic nature and culture of our society.

We provide crucial inputs for social sensitization towards diversity of caste, religion and gender to youth and school teachers.
