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.
