Youth Dreamers Foundation
Youth Dreamers Foundation (YDF) was born with the belief that every child and youth deserves the right to equal education, skills, and development, irrespective of class, caste, religion, color, economic condition, etc. Established in 2015, YDF is an independent not-for-profit NGO formed under section 8 (1) of the Companies Act, 2013.
YDF has been actively engaged with the students and community to reach-out and have provided financial aid through extensive workshops, adequately designed programs, seminars, and a dedicated scholarship cell.
Their programs have helped thousands of school and college going students to continue their education and stopped them to drop out due to their poor economic condition in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Maharashtra.
Started by a group of motivated, well-educated, and experienced enthusiasts, with Gandhi fellows amongst their team, YDF strives to strengthen the upcoming generation with easy access to quality education through proper guidance and financial aid leading towards their life ambition.
