Story

Hello Friends,

We are one of India’s largest network of volunteers, the Youngistaan Foundation is committed to making a difference in the community by helping those in need. We are a ready platform to launch real change.

Started in January 2014, Youngistaan, a registered NGO, is fuelled by the desire to change the world by touching one life at a time. We can do this only when ‘You’ make it possible. There are hundreds of volunteers, working tirelessly, in several cities. Our aim is to intervene and empower the disadvantaged. 

The Feeding Project

The Feeding Project aims at winning the trust of people who currently face homelessness. Fresh, hot food becomes a way to build a relationship with those living on the streets. Every Sunday, volunteers come together to cook food for homeless people. These food packages are then taken to the streets of Hyderabad and Secunderabad.

Our Hunger Heroes don’t just carry food but also ready smiles and a compassionate ear. They have a heart-to-heart with those routinely neglected and learn of their troubles. For instance, any urgent medical need is attended to immediately by our doctor-volunteers.

Similarly, we try to understand their daily struggles such as personal security, lack of employment, etc. Any interest or aptitude towards a skill is encouraged by our volunteers. We aspire to empower the marginalised by restoring their ability to earn.

We wish to raise funds for our Feeding Programme:

Each meal cost: Rs 25/- per plate homeless person. (includes vegetables, rice, oil, cooking equipment rent, water, petrol for volunteers and miscellaneous)

30th October, we conduct our regular food drive. celebrating DIWALI we encourage everyone to 'Be a LIGHT' for somebody else.

We will be organising a special food drive to feed more than 5000+ hom
eless people this Diwali. The food will be distributed to people living on streets, families living in slums and a few orphanages in Hyderabad

What can you do?
1. Donate for the food, each meal will cost Rs.25/-. (Vegetable rice and curd)
2. Cook food and come and help us spread some light.
After which volunteers with us to go on the streets and distribute food.

Thank you. Please follow our work at : www.facebook.com/younghyd, www.youngistaanfoundation.ngo
