Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2011
This description of Ishita Chaudhry's work was prepared when Ishita Chaudhry was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
Ishita Chaudhry is ridding Indian society of the deeply held premise that youth should have little or no say in matters of policy or implementation of ideas that directly impact their lives. Ishita’s organization, The Youth Parliament Foundation (TYPF), strengthens youth-led movements in India by creating opportunities for them to engage with social change and transform an adult-dominated system to one where young people have the ability to exercise their rights.
