Campus Pulse Project

Though still a nascent organisation, LYF has already taken its first steps to achieve some crucial milestones. In its first year of inception, LYF was successful in having a pan-India outreach in the first six months.  With the annual theme-“Citizenship Rights,” LYF collaborated with its regional partners to hold a series of workshops and seminars on issues and areas relevant to the theme. These programs aimed at sensitizing the youth about their rights and more importantly, how to work with authorities and administrations to use these rights to remove problems being faced in individual institutions or the larger community. 269 young people were added to the LYF network during these programs.

The participants in the workshops and seminars appreciated the quality and innovative approach adopted by the organizers. In their feedback, participants mentioned that they found the information disseminated very useful and most importantly, practical to use in dealing with individual and community issues. As a follow-up to the seminars and workshops, two Right to Information Clubs were formed in Ranchi and Jamshedpur in the state of Jharkhand. Six participants volunteered to work for six-eight hours per week with Pratigya.
