Vision & Mission

History

Yakshi is a Resource and Creativity Centre for rural children and youth established in 1992.

Our Vision

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.

Our Mission

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 to allow the people use the power of their collective leadership to imagine and act for transformation and change within their communities.
