Yakshi is a Resource and Creativity Centre for rural children and youth established in 1992.
The core of Yakshi’s Vision is Social Justice and Buen Vivir. Social Justice embodies the principles of equality, sovereignty, liberty and persists to annihilate caste, patriarchy and class inequalities. Buen Vivir is an indigenous proposal of a way of life, based on holistic co-existence and recovery of lost harmony between humans and mother earth.
Yakshi works with marginalised communities to realise democratic governance, social justice, and food sovereignty within the strategies of programs such as Popular Education, Community Food Sovereignty, and Constitutional Resource Centres. Our vision is realized through the work with women, children, and youth. Drawing upon their collective memories and resilient knowledge systems, Yakshi’s mission is for the people to use the power of their collective leadership to imagine and act for transformation and change within their communities.
Yakshi team facilitators are from
Districts in the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh:
Nagarkurnool, Komar Bhim Asifabad, Sangareddy, Chittoor, East Godavari, West Godavari and Srikakulam.
