The Yuva Ekta Foundation is a not-for-profit trust working at the intersection of Youth and Governance, spanning a canvas that integrates young people from different socio economic and geographic backgrounds. Through workshops, conferences, street plays and youth festivals we create platforms using Theatre and the Arts, enabling them to become sensitized, pro-active and empowered citizens.

The Vision is one of Social Equity. With the core intent as Empowerment, the projects impart a sense of Dignity and Self Respect to each participant, be it juveniles in conflict with law, runaway street children or jaded, well-heeled youth. Each is seen as an equal partner with the potential to become an agent of positive social change
