Vivekananda Youth Forum is a non-profit, voluntary organization managed by young
members who wish to make a difference to their own lives and to empower those less fortunate in areas of education, health, and creativity.
Formed in 1987 by a group of young individuals and inspired to make a difference in society based on the character
building ideas of Swami Vivekananda, VYF has worked with children from a variety of backgrounds.
From imparting formal and non formal education to the children in the slums of Juhu to interacting with street children in Mumbai to reaching out to the children of sex-workers in Kamathipura (the largest red-light district in Mumbai),
to identifying children with special needs VYF has built a repository of knowledge and skills in understanding the specific
needs of vulnerable children who are at high risk.
"Educate and raise the masses, and thus alone a nation
