Youth Club- Bejjipuram (YCB) is a secular, apolitical organization founded by 20 elite and educated youth inspired by the Mahatma Gandhi philosophy of rural reconstruction through Non-violence activities and Grama Swarajyam in the year 1980.

The aim of the organization is to fulfill the Human Values by serving the needy, downtrodden and under privileged sections of the society, to inculcate the culture of Mutual Co-operation, Mutual Aid, Self Help, Self-respect, and participation in decision making process to attain empowerment.

Initially YCB focused its emphasis on the basic needs of the village communities in erstwhile Ranasthalam Block in Srikakulam district of united A.P. YCB has been following the path laid by Swami Vivekananda and Master Ekkirala Krishnamacharya and many saints of the present era for establishing good fellowship and ethical values among target people.

 

Properly perceiving the needs of the target communities of the area, YCB basically focused its efforts to strengthen the life support systems of the communities by initiating need based interventions such as education, health, Livelihood promotion, Sustainable Agriculture practices, Environment protection, protection of Rights and skill Development.

Channeling the youth force to rural reconstruction, YCB has extended its sensible support to communities for their socio-economic empowerment during the last 40 years. YCB stays close to the hearts of the communities and assessed the needs and potentials of the people in participatory manner. Srikakulam district bordering to ODISHA on its north is one of the poverty stricken Districts of Andhra Pradesh state from where we observe lot of migration of deprived and disadvantaged communities to neighboring States and Districts in search of livelihoods.

 

Presently YCB working with rural people and under privileged people living in rural areas of 19 Mandals and urban slums of 3 Municipalities in Srikakulam District. Further it has extended its services to Vizianagaran, Visakhapatnam and East Godavari according to availability of funding sources during the last 5 years. YCB has developed  resource teams in different sectors like community mobilization, community organization, entrepreneur development, Gender issues,  water conservation,  Environment Protection, sustainable agriculture, community health, Sanitation and Anti-trafficking.

YCB’s most promising approach is to promote and strengthen the community based organizations with disadvantaged communities like Artisans, High Risk groups, Farmers, Rural Women and Youth.
