The need of the hour is to do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others which is vital and divine vision for Young People for Life India.
Aims and Objectives
Need for compassion
We are witnessing a phenomenal advancement in technology over the last three decades, and our young professionals are experiencing remarkable social and cultural change. This drastic change has generated psychological and social dislocations among the youth. Moreover, technology has influenced the way youth think about life in general and interpersonal human relations in particular. Andhra Pradesh is fourth largest cities in India which has more than four million students alone in Hyderabad (called global village) with highest suicidal rates. We may not find all the answers on websites and in books. People and communities are the best place to search for the answers.
