Who We Are

SHIKHAR YUVA MANCH (SYM) is professionally managed organization . It was initiated in the year 1997 in a response to address issues related to local governance. The members of the SYM were from a youth group who started working together with an objective for bringing social change. Eventually to give it
a legal status they registered as a society. The members of the society are all young and committed to the cause of empowerment of the marginalized and minorities. Shikhar Yuva Manch (SYM) is a leading non governmental organization which works with grass root people, for grass root people aiming at their all-round development emphasizing on children issues in related to education for all and food security. It is a team of young and dynamic youths who are determined to bring social change through the behavior change of people and to change of prospect. SYM is trying to avail the education facilities to the children who are standing in the last of the queue of the society including disable children. And also made efforts to provide sustainable livelihood to the marginalized to ensure food security.

SYM has grown to having implemented 19 projects across 10 District and benefiting around 1,75,000 people in 2017-18. On behalf of all of us in SYM Bilaspur Chhattisgarh, we send our heartfelt greetings to all partners: Government of India and State Governments, International government departments, Foundations and organisations, Private companies who have contributed through CSR initiatives, individuals; and last but not least, member organisations of the SYM. Through support and collective action, we have been successful in transforming millions of lives across the state. The stories of courage and inspiration of the people impacted are constantly shared verbally and through our digital platforms (website and social media). Education projects and effort of community and the efforts to bring Out-of-School Children back to school, and to prevent in-school children, especially girls, from dropping out of school and securing them
