Becoming I- The Foundation

Through multifarious projects in the fields of Education, Women Empowerment, Life Skills Development, Conflict resolution, Human Rights, Substance Abuse, Peace Building etc., it aims to hone the leadership potential of the youth to take action on issues that they themselves are passionate about.

The concept of 'I am' has been taken from Mattie J.T. Stepanek's book - 'Celebrate through Heart Songs'. The foundation aims to create a group of thoughtful, committed people. 
Becoming I is inspired by The Three Dot Dash - Just Peace Summit - A global initiative of the We Are Family Foundation designed to recognize and support the efforts of Global Teen Leaders around the world who are actively working on projects that promote a more peaceful society by addressing issues related to basic human needs: food, water, health, shelter, safety, education and the environment.

Their latest project is named Fiza that deals with the issue of Commercial Sex Trade in remote parts of Delhi. Through theatre workshops and exercises, art and craft programs, simple dance exercises and performances, community building and singing sessions, it aims to provide life skills development. Through these media, they also strive to provide them with an alternate source of employment and push them towards education.
