My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Yp Foundation, New Delhi, --, India
A lot of people think of YP as an "elitist" organization. What they don't understand is that upper middle class youngsters are also major stakeholders and that they to don't have a space where they can work on issues that concern them. Some people also feel YP doesn't do "grassroots" work..; seldom do they understand what "grassroots" work even means! Rural India might have a lot of issues and problems that need to be addresses no doubt, but what happens to the people in cities who can't really go to remote villages and help out? Are their problems and concerns less important? Aren't they stakeholders as well? YP is thus an organization with a difference. It doesn't claim to go to villages and work. It admits that their target audience is the cities. It is the kids who go to good schools. Its objective is social change yes, but more importantly, its "developing potential in young people". It helps develop skills of young people to set up their own projects and run them the way they want to, following a human rights based approach.
