Governance and Human Rights
YUVA Rural has been working on raising awareness among the rural populace about their basic rights vis-à-vis the structures of local governance. While the laws and policies of the government are not against the poor, gaps and inadequacies in the implementation of these laws and access to schemes largely affect the delivery of services and benefits to the marginalised sectors.

YUVA Rural has thus taken on the challenges and responsibilities in ensuring that the people are empowered to participate in the decision-making process for the issues affecting their own and their community’s development.

Conscious and continuous efforts are also being undertaken by YUVA Rural to prompt the government to be more responsive to the needs of its constituency and to hold it accountable to its responsibility of ensuring the welfare of its people. YUVA Rural also promotes the wider participation of women and youth through providing them with adequate exposure and trainings in terms of understanding and resolving the issues they would have to confront.

Under this thematic area, YUVA Rural is facilitating and implementing two projects, namely: i) Anubhav Shiksha Kendra (ASK) and ii) Wada Na Todo Maha Abhiyan (WNTMA).
