India Youth Fund works with children growing up in India's slums. These children live in conditions of extreme poverty and deprivation. India Youth Fund seeks to improve their daily lives by instilling life skills and job skills to break the cycle of poverty for them and their families. We do this by engaging them through in-school leadership and after-school sports, arts and vocational skill programs. These programs build their confidence, self-esteem, and encourage active decision making. They sow the seeds of leadership and ambition, inspiring children to stay in school and work towards a healthier, brighter future.
