|Young People's Initiative (YPI)||A S4D programme that empowers adolescent girls and young women to access their rights and realise their potential.|
A big thank you to all those who have donated on this page.
Maitrayana’s vision is to works towards a gender equal society in which girls and women can exercise their rights. The Young People’s Initiative (YPI) is a sport for development programme that empowers adolescent girls (10 – 18 year) and young women (19-25 year) in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore. Its focus is on providing access to sport and provide safe spaces to develop life and leadership skills so that they can make decisions about their own lives and influence change in their families/communities.
Maitrayana leverages the power of sport to create ecosystems that empower girls and women to fulfil their potential. The pillars of Maitrayana’s work are: 1) enabling leadership in adolescent girls and young women, 2) synergising with parents and communities to enable adolescent girls and young women’s empowerment, 3) creating collaborations with the government, businesses, NGOs that will advance gender equality.
This is the start for a longer intervention to help girls continue their education and build their education, employability and entrepreneurship pathways through the Economic Justice Programme. The YPI has been implemented with 125,000 participants since it’s inception in 2006.
