About The YP Foundation
Our vision is to ensure that young people’s human rights are realised.
TYPF enables young people to lead personal and social transformation, connects them with opportunities to lead and create on ground impact on relevant issues and enables them to address systemic gaps by policy and public advocacy based on their on ground experience.
The YP Foundation (TYPF) was founded in 2002 by Ishita Chaudhry when she was 15 years old. It was co-created by young people originally as The Youth Parliament in the aftermath of the Godhra Riots that took place in Gujarat, with the hope of bringing young people together from across the country to build a stronger understanding of Human Rights as well as an opportunity to work together and discover leadership skills on social issues they were passionate about through a safe, open and non-judgemental platform.
