India is a young country with 70 percent of people below the age of 35 years. That is a very significant statistics. It offers great opportunity but much greater challenge: How are we going to provide this huge army of young people with positive avenues of life?
Government alone cannot do it. The civil society will have to take a lead in this direction. STAIRS- a NGO- aims to do just that: working to empower youth in remote, rural and backward areas of the country. Stairs is Delhi based with pan-India operations.
It is reasonable to conclude that youth potential cannot lie idle; it is either used or misused.
