Pre-Recruitment Training (Free Of Charge)

Uttarakhand state has two of India’s most decorated regiments i.e., Garhwal Rifles and Kumaon Regiment. Every year, Army Recruitment Office (ARO) of Regiments in Lansdowne and Ranikhet announce yearly recruitment drive to recruit young patriotic men and women become a part of world’s third largest – Indian Army.

Women of our country have always shown sheer courage in all paths of life, So why not be a part of a role in defending our country? Warriors like Tilu Rauteli are one of such example. In 2016, Our founder Colonel Ajay Kothiyal, who has immense admiration of grit and strength of women in hills, initiated to train girls from remote areas to join Uttarakhand Police and other belted forces.

Men Soldier Entry Course

Post acknowledging the dates of recruitment rallies to be held in the state, our team strategizes to organize admission drives for the 4-month-long pre-recruitment course. The foundation conducts awareness drives in the neighboring tehsil and villages to make aware youth and elders of Garhwal and Kumaon about the impending camp with educational and physical requirement for clearing the admission drive. Discipline and compassion is the core foundation of our Training operandi. During the training period, to sensitize the candidates on societal issues, these candidates assist in conducting cleanliness drives, fighting forest fires, afforestation, disaster relief and assisting rural medical patients. This helps build their moral fiber and become better citizens.

Free Healthcare To Everyone

Taking free healthcare to the remote areas of Uttarakhand where people do not have access to decent healthcare

Free treatment of impoverished patients, who cannot afford treatment, is one of our prime focused areas. Youth Foundation is associated with the renowned doctors of AIIMs, Lady Harding Medical College, Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital etc. We invite doctors from these hospitals to conduct medical camps, identify patients from chronic ailments and process their transition to the above hospitals for further treatment.

Patients with severe ailment got new life

Mostly in the higher altitude of Garhwal and Kumaon, where basic healthcare is still a distant dream, patients suffering from cancer, Kidney transplant, hole in heart, permanent paralysis and other serious ailments are taken to the major hospitals of Delhi to provide sustainable treatment. The course of treatment generally take 2 months to 1 year and all the expenses are borne by Youth Foundation. We have also established a three-room transit accommodation with two dedicated resident staff to take care of the patients and their families feel relieved from the stress of finding accommodation and food.

In the Last 6 years, Youth Foundation has help more than 250 patients, from rural Uttarakhand, get free treatment and now are leading a healthy life
