Youth For Rural India
Gandhiji said “I would say that if the village perishes India will perish too. India will be no more India.” Inspired by this thought we are a group of highly motivated engineers from IIT Bombay and other renowned institutes who are working in the development sector and wish to create an army of young development professionals. As it is commonly seen, a majority of today’s youth has very little exposure to real India and it’s problems. This lack of exposure prevents youngsters from pursuing these problems to the core and coming up with viable solutions.
Thus, the program aims towards creating a platform where willing, dedicated and curious youngsters not only get to know village life, but also understand its complex nuances. The workshop brings in the best of academicians and field experts to provide a multi-dimensional perspective. This whole event will be a volunteer-based non-profit event.
