The Tehelka Foundation is a not for profit Trust that has been working with youth for the past six years on issues of Governance and Social Justice, inspiring them to become Agents of social change. Through workshops, conferences, street plays and youth festivals, we build bridges between marginalized youth and those from mainstream society. Empowering them to become Active Citizens.
The Vision is one of social equity. The Foundation has created platforms that bring together marginalized youth with the privileged, through a range of projects. With the core intent as Empowerment, the projects impart a sense of Dignity and Self Respect to each participant, be it juveniles in conflict with law, runaway street children or jaded, well-heeled youth.
Through its various programs, the Foundation has bridged gaps between people from entirely different worlds and enabled them to explore what it means to be human, together!
The Tehelka Foundation is now ready to expand its resource base, both in terms of human and financial capital. Projects need to scale up and in keeping with our earlier history we are reaching out to you, as fellow Indians to join forces with us.
The Foundation is looking for young people with idealism and passion whom it can train for a minimum of 6 months as interns and absorb into its projects. It seeks to create a Youth network of volunteers across the country that will blaze new trails in development, carrying forth Tehelka’s energy of courage and fearlessness.You have made it possible for Tehelka to be reborn. Now come be part of the Foundation you have helped create. Nurture it and grow with it. We need you. We need your dreams. Lets build a new India together, an India that has a place for us all.
