- We partner with government ministries; local, national and international organizations to upscale our intervention models and replicate.
A society which is just, egalitarian and democratic where all sections live a life free from disease, hunger and exclusion.
The core principles at YDF guide its vision and mission to help achieve the objective of making the desired change in the lives of children with type 1 diabetes and their families. These core principles are:
The inception of YDF three decades ago was guided with the mission of empowering diabetic children and their families through effective and perennial access to health services and adequate nutrition. Its genesis was conceptualized in the heart of the country, Delhi where the magnitude of migrant population is overwhelming, most of who are cornered to the periphery unable to access decent services essential for a living.
Recognizing the prevalence of the disease and the daunting need for intervention, YDF came into being to improve the health status of juvenile diabetics through not only improving their access to health services but also combating the ill effects of the disease through providing free yoga classes. Reiterating the need for intervention, YDF, envisages collaborating with donors to expand its outreach and foray into avenues of education and livelihoods. Recognizing that these domains are intertwined, YDF in today’s date envisages for holistic human development.
