The objective of this report is presenting the works of Shikhar Yuva Manch in a brief but comprehensive manner. A total of three weeks of observation and active participation in the projects was spent during We Care - Civic Engagement Internship. The internship was scheduled for first year students of NMIMS from 4th February 2013 to 24th February 2013. The project was one of the first of its kind given to internee, as the current running projects are long and unable to cover within three weeks of time. The project was chosen by Mr. Bhupesh Vaishnav, President of the organization. The project was made keeping in mind the approach of organization in pursuing its operations. They were pointing towards a changing atmosphere in the world of social works with most of the projects of Shikhar Yuva Manch (From here on, referred to as SYM) running independently with different funding institutions and partner NGOs. The level of professionalism and standardization that has been achieved by SYM is remarkable, which makes its works impactful. The report presents a few of the projects and the relative methods used by SYM to reach its objectives and goals. The report will be useful for any person needing information or interested in knowing about SYM. It is also helpful for people interested in knowing about the systematic way in which social works are pursued by NGOs nowadays. It can be also used by the organization for new trainees and interns as it presents its history as well as the contemporary projects pursued by the organization. Because of lack of time in my internship, I was not able to visit to cover a few projects pursued by SYM, namely TDH and NEG Fire. The projects covered by me are OXFAM, PACS, SMILE Foundation Learning Centres and CHILDLINE. Finally, this report provides a view of the organization’s works which is completely subjective, a real perception of the issues get formed when they are encountered personally.

This report provides an insight into Shikhar Yuva Manch. Started as an organization by young enthusiasts for bringing about social change in 1997, it has grown now to cover more than 400 villages with its 380+ staff members. The report was made using an internship of three weeks by manually visiting a few places and referring to various documents. A glimpse into the past of Shikhar Yuva Manch will show its works with the Bitkuli (Model Village) serving a living example of tremendous hard work done by the organization. The organization believes in setting SMART goals, applies Panchasheel Neeti and implements Management By Objectives to get the works done. Current projects includes Poorest Area Civil Society, TDH, SMILE Foundation Learning Centres, NEG FIRE, OXFAM and CHILDLINE with primary aim being child education. This report covers only a few projects such as PACS which was aimed for tribal population, SMILE for under privileged children, CHILDLINE for children in distress and OXFAM for monitoring public schools in villages.
