We are a registered charitable trust established in 2003 with a vision to create a platform for young people and to actively engage them in social justice issues.
Based in Sambalpur (Western Odisha), we are working towards building a society where young people take initiative for positive social change, with a strong emphasis on developing their knowledge, skills and confidence. Through innovative programs, we combine both these aspects in a diverse range of activities.
We are deeply committed to building capacities of individuals and organizations working in the area of youth development, life skills, citizenship education and volunteering in Odisha and the neighboring states of West Bengal, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Bihar.
Through youth engagement, we aim to bring about change in three focus areas:
Youth Empowerment and Gender, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights
Education and Children Rights
Entrepreneurship, Ecology and Sustainable Livelihood
The successful implementation of its programs has helped us position Patang as a Regional Youth Support Center for Eastern India.
