Gandhi ji famously said that “India lives in its villages” and till date the statement holds true. About 70% of Indian population (which constitutes for 15% of the world population) lives in its villages and one in every five rural residents is ‘poor’. These areas are often such that basic necessities of life are not just unavailable but unheard of. This is the population at the bottom of the pyramid of the big Indian dream.
Started by a group of students studying at Lady Shri Ram College , Asmat aims to bring about change at the grassroots level through youth mobilization. How do we aim to do that? We realise that the change just won’t come from promising game changing schemes and policies. The change also has to come in the ideologies of people. We aim to bring change in the thought process of the rural citizens to make equality between genders, caste and class and financial literacy a reality.
We aim to harness the youth power to work with issues in true India and to work for the necessary goal of equity amongst all. We realise that everyone needs to have a stake in upliftment of India and to not just rely on policies to eradicate issues. this is where we want to make ourselves heard and felt.
