Youth Parliament Program & Swatantrata Center

“I accidentally started my career as a Social Entrepreneur, and I have been engaging in social services since my intermediate. As a National Coordinator, I started my Social Journey in an anti-corruption youth organization that educates and organizes young people to support anti-corruption institutions and governance reforms. I was actively involved in the 2011 Indian anti-corruption movement in the South Indian states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. I started an independent project supported by multiple well-known youth organizations on the 2nd Oct 2016. In 2019, I Integrated it into Swatantrata Center, a liberal public policy think tank advancing human progress flourishing.After my postgraduation in Economics, I have been engaging with youth through various organizations like youth organizations, research think tanks, and International networks that work on education, governance, and Democracy. I worked for Loksatta/Foundation for Democratic Reforms (FDR); before this, I was a Development consultant working with various Indian and international non-profit organizations that work in areas of policy development, economic growth, and Entrepreneurship Education. I represented various Indian organizations in more than 20 international conferences and workshops in the United States, Germany, Belgium, Poland, Italy, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and France.The biggest challenge is connecting the people for one cause as a Group; everyone has different opinions and organizations they run. I can promise that our work has deepened Democracy and substantially encouraged community participation with each of our initiatives. I can say with confidence and conviction that we were able to mentor a good number of spirited youngsters with character and competence for Nation Building.”
