What we Do

Our mission is to create a generation that is powerful, aware, educated, employed; ready to eliminate the long standing problems in our society and bring the change we all wish to witness.

For this purpose, we have 4 main themes that we focus on

Environment & Preservation

Have you noticed the changing environment around you? Soaring temperature? Lesser rainfall? More and more natural calamities? Water shortages?

It is all hinting towards the need to actively save the environment and be conscious of how our actions impact the environment.

Tampering with nature has been putting multiple species in danger or on the verge of extinction because of loss of their natural habitat. Why else would you think tigers and cheetahs attack villages and cities?

Increasing pollution is hazardous not only to the environment but the health of our families too. Look at where Pune stands now. If we don’t take action, it will only increase from there.

Deforestation, a critical issue not only in Pune but across the country, is creating an imbalance in the nature leading to deadly repercussions. We need to plant more trees and that is why recently launched “Plant a Million Tree” campaign. You can read about it here.

We are utilizing the non-renewable resources (like coal) faster than they can replenish. Sustainable use of resources is becoming a distant dream. What kind of future are we leaving for the younger generation (for our kids)?

We take a pledge to take action, conduct awareness programs, workshops and events that encourage the youth to participate and take initiative to protect and preserve the nature. Do you?

Education & Employment

In today’s world, education is the stepping stone for a developing society. After all, civilization evolved because of education and awareness.

At YTDS, we truly believe in

“विद्या ददाति विनयं विनयाद्याति पात्रताम् |
पात्रत्वाद्धनमाप्नोति धनाद्धर्मं ततः सुखम् ||

For those of you who don’t read Sanskrit, it means education makes one humble, humility makes one capable, from that one gains wealth, and with that you can do good deeds.

To put this in practice, we work towards providing quality education, knowledge and employment skills to the masses in need, especially women and girl children.

While every parent work towards providing education to their child, there are many who ignore education for their daughters. It is disheartening to know that many still consider the place of women and girls in the kitchens and not in schools and colleges.

We focus on bringing education to these underprivileged women/girls, make a noticeable difference in their and their family’s lives. There is a reason why we say “Educating a girl is educating a complete family”.

We are keen on helping every girl/women who is keen on learning and educating themselves to lead a better life. We also provide them vocational training to earn livelihood.

Young & Youth Development

According to Bloomberg, India is likely to have the world’s largest workforce by 2027, with a billion people aged between 15 and 64.

There is no doubt that the youth is India’s greatest strength! But, if we don’t work towards employment concerns, this will quickly become a matter of great concern!

And, hence,

YTDS focuses on promoting positivity, productivity and healthy development of young people. We concentrate on holistic development that emphasizes on life skills along with providing support, experience and required vocational training.

With this, young people are prepared to face the challenges in life, enter the workforce, create opportunities for themselves and be the agents of change in the society

“Be the change you want to see in the world.”
-Mahatma Gandhi

Awareness & Empowerment

At YTDS, we strongly believe that awareness and empowerment are the strongest agents of change.

We focus on developing the potential of women, children and the youth to drive long lasting equitable goals. For this purpose, we strategically work on and organize events that are focused on spreading awareness about sensitive issues like women and child health, self defense, drug abuse, alcoholism, domestic violence etc.

Our fight is with the underlying causes of social evils and economic disparities, to ensure dignified life to everyone.

And, if we want to see developed India, women, children and the youth need to empowered.
