YUVA stands for Yukti Vatavaran. Yukti means developing a rational outlook and fostering consensus building. Vatavaran means the entire enivironment including air, plants, rivers and socio-economic environment.

The mission of YUVA is to start building NeoHumanism in the neglected but formerly renowned land of Magadha of Buddha, Mahavir Jain and Guru Gobind Singh. The aim is to foster economic swaraj of the people of Magadha from outside exploiters.

We will start to work by giving unemployed, uneducated youth a chance to develop skills, develop their character and develop service spirit for their homeland of Magadha and love for all of humanity and all beings in this universe.
