The Purkal Youth Development Society

Purkal Youth Development Society is based out of Dehradun in the state of Uttarakhand, for the past 10 years. This is a charity that is focused on improving the lives of the underprivileged rural youth through education. A part of this education is aimed at sensitizing the children in matters of the environment, especially those concerning the Himalayan region.

They aim to help this rural community access quality education. They achieve this through mentoring, along with attention to nutrition and healthcare. The faculty is made available exclusively to the poorest. Effective delivery of education is focussed on the girl child and they use enjoyable and meaningful ways. The establishment also ensures that the community at large is sensitive to the development needs of the children. The belief is that if bright youth in this rural community were supported in this manner, they would instill newfound hope and become agents of change and catalyze other youth and bring about transformation through demonstration.
