by Ashoka: Innovators for the Public

years active


A staggering 51 percent of India's population of 1.1 billion people are under 25 and two-thirds under 35. It is important to create opportunities and platforms for these young people to realize their potential to create change. Young people are our most powerful engine for social impact and we have the responsibility to ensure that they are equipped with the knowledge, skills and exposure to innovatively tackle the most pressing social issues.


Ashoka's Youth Venture helps young people define their social change idea and create an action plan for it through workshops and capacity building. The ideas are presented to other social Changemakers and teams receive funding to launch their idea.

Long-Term Impact

The progress of a country depends on the number of Changemakers thrown up by the system. Youth Venture wants to drastically increase the number of young people who live the experience of being a Changemaker.
