Global Youth Volunteer & Ambassador Program(GYV-GYA)

A network of over 100+ young advocates...

Navonmesh Prasar’s GYV-GYA is a worldwide network of over 100+ young advocates and campaigners for quality Education in more than 20 countries. (mainly Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and many more)


The GYVs for Innovation is a network of young people advocating and campaigning for education change around the world (especially South East Asia).


The network offers passionate education advocates between 18 and 30 the opportunity to connect with and learn from other young people while gaining knowledge and developing their skills.

As part of the network, Global Youth Ambassadors (GYAs) are encouraged to take action on global education campaigns with Navonmesh Prasar’s & IPSFRI’s Innovative Education movement.

A GYV Program is one of its kind program for youths across South-East Asia. After the success of last year’s “IPSFRI – IIT Delhi Rural Innovation Program” and “Summer Volunteer School”, we received a tremendous amount of applications this year.
