Yuva Parivartan Vol. 1, April 2012
President's Desk
Dear Colleagues,

I would like to welcome you all to Yuva Parivartan’s first E-Magazine.

As we set foot into the new financial year, we thank our sponsors for reposing their faith in us. Yuva Parivartan aspires to reach greater heights to transform the lives of over 4 lakh youth. This is indeed a great challenge for us, as we need to perform with extraordinary commitment to reach this milestone. I am sure, as a team, our motivation to achieve this goal is at the highest level, after an orbit changing performance last year. Last year, we provided livelihood training to over 1 lakh students.

In the current year our main focus will be on the Yuva Parivatan Academy, through which we will assess and certify 2 lakh students that will be trained by 2000 small NGOs under the Authorised Training and Certification Centres (ATCC) program.The main responsibility is providing livelihood, and not just training. I know this is a challenge accepted with great confidence by all and I am certain that Yuva Parivartan will exceed this number by December 2012.

We have taken new strides in the world of social media as a part of our new brand initiative, through Facebook and LinkedIn. We have also started a blog which is regularly updated with news on Yuva Parivartan and its activities. Please read and contribute to the initiative.

Shining Star - Arun

Arun, a resident of Bhootapalle village has struggled hard to reach where he is today. He recounts his story of giving life a second chance with the help of Yuva Parivartan.

“I have been connected with Yuva Parivartan for more than six years. They have been tirelessly working to provide vocational training to the youth. I have visited their training center for girls at Bandra many times and tried to up-scale their potentialities particularly those who are in the field of beautician and hair designing. Two of the YP girls are now working in a senior position in my parlour. I think YP is doing a great job in our society by making the youth socially productive.”

'Yuva Parivartan' is the largest N.G.O working for underprivileged youth!! To know more about us logon to www.yuvaparivartan.org
Through years of working on the ground, we have realized that the problem with the school dropouts from an underprivileged family is not only economic poverty but social poverty. By social poverty, we mean the absence of social support systems and the socio cultural atmosphere that positively impacts school dropouts to improving themselves. We at Yuva Parivartan have developed a model and identified 4 areas of work, which form the 4 pillars of the Yuva Parivartan model. Please feel free to forward this email to a friend.
