Violence in India is terrible we are surrounded by violence all the time. Everyone is a victim of violence and it can be of any form like- Physical, Mental, Oral etc. Violence has significant impact in the development. Gandhi Ji was a strong follower and supporter of non-violence. According to him, non-violence is both a principle and a practice. Grassroot Empowerment and Development by Youth works on non-violence as one of the focus area, and is directly related to our mission and vision to create just and sustainable society.
