Story

176 million youth and children in India are deemed to be in need of care and protection. For children born into disadvantage, the 'Lottery of Birth' unfairly controls their life. A single factor like parental education can impact future wage inequality by upto 17%, a lower bound for the overall inequality of opportunity. 

Mentoring tradition dates back 3 millenia and has helped millions of youth worldwide receive friendship, support and inspiration when they needed it the most. 

Mentor Together is India's first community-based youth mentoring non-profit organization, pairing youth from destitute or low-income backgrounds, 1-1 with volunteer mentors who are carefully screened and trained.  Until 2014 Mentor Together has shaped the lives of over 1000 mentees across 4 cities. 

In 2015, with presence in over 7 cities, Mentor Together plans on facilitating mentorship for 1000 new youth and seeks your help in spreading the joy of mentorship.
