The April uprising of 1990 saw a level of political awareness among the Nepalese. Youths at the heart of the great revolution took the center stage with their prowess expressed at different spheres. The political change thereafter acknowledged the need of the participation of the youths in diverse sectors to accelerate the proceedings from then. After almost 9 years of the restoration of multiparty democracy in Nepal, a group of motivated young leaders decided to steer the Youth Movement of Nepal. The dire need to channelize the potentials that youths possess in terms of spectrum of participation consequently resulted to the establishment of “Youth Initiative”. One of the Leading youth led organizations In Nepal.

Recognizing the various challenges for young people in Nepal, Youth Initiative (YI) today works on a total of five mutually reinforcing thematic directions in support of its missions. Our strategic planning after considering the recommendations brought by various researches determined directions for the organization.
