And we just turned 8!
Jul 2010 27

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

We turn 8 years old today!

Over the past 8 years, we have been privileged to have the investment and guidance of some of the most incredible mentors, volunteers, alumni, staff members and partner organizations.

On behalf of the organizational staff, members and Board of Directors, I take this opportunity to express our sincerest appreciation for your encouragement and contribution to the various programs of March 2009- 2010. We are deeply grateful for your support and generosity.

TYPF was founded as The Youth Parliament on July 26, 2002 as a response by young people in schools to the Godhra Riots addressing the growing indifference and apathy amongst youth in urban Delhi. The question we asked ourselves when we began TYPF was – What can we each do to challenge and change this?

Our core focus is on creating programmes and influencing policy in the areas of gender, sexuality, health, education, the arts and governance.

Our mission is to promote, protect and advance young people’s human rights by building leadership, and strengthening youth led initiatives and movements.

  2. There are many organisations working on child rights but there exists to date, a lack of sharing of resources, on being able to learn from our collective successes and challenges from the field and the effective tools for implementation that exist amongst us.
  3. Young people have the time and the skills to be able to work with other young people on sharing knowledge, skill and resources.
