Yuva Parivartan Vol. 4, September 2012

Dear friends,

On the occasion of our 65th Independence Day, I thought it might be useful to reflect on the hopes, aspirations and prospects of the 300 Million disadvantaged youth who have not completed school. They form over 80% of the youth in our country and their number is greater than the population of most countries in the world.  These youth come from poor backgrounds, from the labour class, who generally “live for the day”.  They get a meal if the earning member has worked that day, else, go hungry.  If they get a bonus or higher wage, they use it at once on food, clothing and entertainment.  If they fall ill or have a marriage in the house, they mortgage their belongings – either jewellery or property to a money lender and are perpetually in debt.

Anjani Mashelkar Inclusive Innovation Award

Dr. R.A. Mashelkar’s mother, Anjani Mashelkar raised him against all the difficulties of poverty and struggle. A woman of courage and dignity, she was all along concerned about the poor old people and always wanted him to do something about them.

This wish was fulfilled by ‘Anjani Mashelkar Inclusive Innovation Award’, an annual award with a reward money of Rs.1 Lac given to an Indian innovator (individuals/organisation) for coming up with breakthrough ideas that will solve the problems of the old- especially who are economically disadvantaged- hence Inclusive Innovation!

'Yuva Parivartan' is the largest N.G.O working in livelihoods 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 underprivileged families 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. You can forward this email to a friend.
