Vision, Mission, Core Values and Core Purpose
We believe that development is a continuous struggle to create a humane society, which sustains all human beings, as well as nature, where women, men and children enjoy universal human rights. A humane society based on the values of equality, distributive justice and secularism is liberated from oppression on the basis of caste, class, creed, gender, age, ethnicity, language; is free from all forms of exploitation and violence; and demonstrates integrity and respect for democratic polity and processes.
YUVA will empower the oppressed and the marginalized by facilitating their organisations and institutions towards building equal partnerships in the development process, ensuring the fulfillment of the human right to live in security, dignity and peace. YUVA will also engage in critical partnership with the government and forge alliances with other actors of civil society such as people’s movements, trade unions, women’s group, academic institutions and the private sector to enable and strengthen the people’s empowerment processes.

YUVA is committed to certain fundamental principles of development, which YUVA considers as its core values. These core values are :
