Who We Are?
We, a group of like-minded people having diverse educational and professional background decided to quit our professional career and rolled-up our sleeves to do something on the perpetual challenge of this country in dealing with – the inappropriate & unproductive nature of Indian education. We are strongly convinced that the current model of education followed predominantly in all schools, does not encourage creativity and innovation. For us, the quality of education and its access appeared to be the most important factor in converting rural & semi-urban centers into economic powerhouses and improve livelihood and socio-economic background of the people in the areas. With extensive research and numerous consultations with various members of the educational fraternity, we framed the core philosophy & operational methodologies and established Young Seed Centre for Education in November 2016. In November 2017, Young Seed Centre for Education was registered as a public charitable trust, and it becomes Young Seed Education Trust. Within this short span of time, Young Seed Educational Trust has firmly grounded its roots and started endowing fruits to scores of children from the rural & semi-urban community.
The Bigger Picture: Our Core Value
While global political organizations and international civil societies work towards global development under a laid out framework of UN’s Millennium Development Goals and Sustainable Development Goals, we as a team of grass root individuals from Tamil Nadu, India, have our own role and beliefs in our development. As we come from rural areas of India, the reach of the knowledge and information are far less when compared to urban areas. The human resources to economy and society are under utilized and there is still a huge skill gap. Therefore with two core tools, we address the skill gap as decentralization and education.
To bring forward the quality of education and its standard at semi-urban and rural areas of Tamil Nadu

- Improve the system of student-centered approach with project-, task-, problem-based learning models
- Promote holistic education by inculcating standard school syllabi with cognitive-, innovation and research-, global language and intercultural capabilities
