Greetings from Pravah and ComMutiny – The Youth Collective!
It is our immense pleasure to invite you to ’Youthopia – A Journey from Discontent to Social Hope’. Let’s come together on 16th September for an evening of chai, charcha, music and celebration!
This September we at PRAVAH enter our 25th year of being and building youth leadership for Social Change. We thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with you – our friends and co-voyagers who have been an integral part of our journey thus far – and rediscover the feeling of social hope that has brought and bound us together.
In times of increasing discontent, when the world grapples with various forms of exclusion and violence, our young volunteers and social entrepreneurs stand as flag bearers of hope, and positive social change.
It is today more than ever before, that youth leadership stands its best chance of the creation of a better world for everyone. It is today, that we need to invest in youth leadership, more than ever before.
