The Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan (NYKS) has mobilized one crore youth to fulfill Prime Minister Modi’s vision of ‘New India’ following his recent call to promote out-of-the-box thinking among the youth to his vision of a new India.
The NYKS, India’s largest youth organization, has launched a massive skill development, social and financial inclusion and development programme for the youth of the country, involving more than one crore youth in creating awareness and facilitating digital transitions.
The NYKS, with the help of National Remote Sensing Centre under ISRO, has also developed a Mobile App for youth workers in the country through which the NYKS will promote out-of-the-box thinking among the youth to fulfill the Prime Minister’s vision of a new India, said Major General (Retd) Dilawar Singh, Director General of the NYKS, in a statement.
“The Mobile App is part of the BHUVAN Geo Portal. The Youth Clubs can upload their data in the portal with help of Mobile App including their profile, programmes, activities, photographs and village profile”, Singh explained.
Recently, Prime Minister Modi had exhorted thousands of innovators and engineers, participating in India’s biggest innovation fest named Smart India Hackathon, to think out of the box.
“Following footprints of the PM, NYKS for the first time, has launched a major initiative for the youth from rural villages across India for patriotism and nation building. lt is a matter of great interest that this year the National Award was won by a Muslim girl from J&K for the programme on Patriotism and Nation Building”, said DG, NYKS.
Major General Singh informed that as against number of 24.50 lakh youth involved in Nehru Yuva Kendra programmes in the year 2013-14, the figure has now reached 128 lakh in last two years and as against 28 thousand activities, the figure has now reached 1.20 lakh.
