Today, every fifth person in India is an adolescent. Without a doubt, the future of our nation lies in the hands of these teenagers. But just how healthy, informed, and prepared are they? The lack of honest and open conversation about changes during adolescence leaves them confused, vulnerable, and stunted, while school education often fails to provide important life skills for employment. Here at Step Up Foundation, we plan to change that. Our programs are tailored to address and average teenager’s questions and build leadership skills, forming well-rounded and educated leaders for generations to come.
