The need to empower youth for a better tomorrow is connected both, to the financial elevation as well as increment of the standard of living. Awareness is a key factor for this empowerment, with guidance towards developing a wholesome outlook of life. Youth empowerment in any development is imperative not only for national development of an entire country but also for personal development of an individual. Youth empowerment is pursued by promoting youth rights, youth activism and in community decision making. Empowerment is necessarily a process of inculcating values to equip the learner lead a life that is satisfying to the individual while being in accordance with the cherished values and ideals of the society.

ShikshaVriksh was founded with an objective to work towards Early, primary, secondary, adult, digital & civic education. It is not education but to also create a cohesive ecosystem through various tech-enabled skilling activities. We also aspire to become India’s leading social organisation to help in rehabilitation of “special need” or people with “different abilities”.
Increased emphasis on human development will help society to foster inclusive economic growth. It is time to realize that human development activities are not just philanthropic but encompass economic benefits as well. India will have to prepare itself to fully realize the economic opportunities of the technological advancements and transform to create a nimble demand led education system integrated with skill development. A collaborative effort from Government, industry and academia can certainly turn the challenge of growing population into an opportunity, but the time for action is ‘NOW’.
We at ShikshaVriksh are committed to facilitate and work towards achieving this goal.
