Our Approach


Journeys with Youth and Adolescents

Synergy Sansthan practices especially designed programmes that allow adolescents and youth to develop a deeper awareness and understanding about themselves. It is related to social realities by participating in immersive exposures and act based on the learning through self-designed action projects. The programs range from providing a physical space where young people from trbal and rural communities. They are motivated come together and organize themselves to the ones which aim to nurture entrepreneurial skills of young people who wish to work on their own social change ideas. 

Community Mobilization and Action

There are specifically designed programs for advocating human rights issues (especially women, environment,education and health) of the tribal communities at the center of our intervention. Community Mobilization and Action Programs aim to build rural youth leaders who are able to raise their voices and act upon tribal population's social and cultural marginalization.

Collective Action

Synergy Sansthan belives in collective action at all possible platforms by organizing campaigns that contribute in influencing policy decisions at the local level. The Collective Actions are covered by the local media for larger impact. These campaigns create a positive enviornment for social intervention and raise awareness (and consciousness) of the disctrict on Constitutional rights and values. In addition to their local impact, they hold national and state level importance as Synergy is a part of CYC's network which runs nation-wide campaigns across the country along with many partners.
