Yuva Parivartan is one of the largest NGOs providing livelihoods to underprivileged youth.
Yuva Parivartan is a collective effort of transformers, visionaries, corporates, and the benefactors. An NGO which was cradled in the Kherwadi region of Bandra, is now brimming with endless energy and has spread across the entire nation. In 19 years of its existence, Yuva Parivartan has shown a tremendous growth. The parent center has now branched out to over 700 centers across 17 states of India, which includes 67 Livelihood Development Centers, more than 600 Partnership Centers and over 5000 mobile rural camp centers. We have worked with the Police Department and Prisons to train First Time Offenders and under-trials thereby re-habilitate them and keep them away from crime.
As one of the largest NGOs in the livelihood space in India that works for the “out of school” youth, we strongly believe that the nation’s strength and future lies in the hands of its youth. Unlike the developed countries where 90% youth opt for some or the other sort of vocational training, less than 5% undergo vocational training in our country despite the fact that India is a country with the largest youth population.
From 100 students to 6,50,000 students, from 1 center to more than 700 centers, from the violence affected tribal areas of Maharashtra to the hostile snow-clad terrain of Kashmir, Yuva Parivartan has expanded its horizons to become a national movement.
Annually, we empower 1, 00,000 school dropouts of which over 60% are gainfully employed including those that take a bigger leap of becoming entrepreneur.
At Yuva Parivartan, we aim to continue growing and mentoring other local NGOs and government organizations to deliver the YP model of livelihood training to achieve a Pan India presence.

KSWA was founded in 1928 by Late Shri. B.G. Kher, a freedom fighter, statesman and the first Premier of Bombay State. He was moved by the plight and miserable living conditions of the 100 odd tanner families who had settled in the marshes of Bandra (E) called Chamdewalla-ki-Wadi. While he was involved in the freedom struggle, leading two ministries in 1937 and 1946, interspersed with prison terms, his friends and associates continued to work in the area, later known as "Kherwadi".
The Trust was registered in 1955 and the Trustees and Executive Council have continued to follow the principles of service and commitment to help the poor and underprivileged and adhere to the high principles of simplicity, integrity and commitment set by the founder.
Kherwadi Social Welfare Association started the Yuva Parivartan™ (YP) Movement in 1998 under the leadership of Mr. Kishor Kher and Mrs. Mrinalini Kher to cater to the unmotivated school dropouts and make them economically independent through vocational training. The movement was formally launched in February 2003 by the then President Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.
