#LeadYoung - Two Bangalore teens, Ashwini (16) and Priya (17), created Jazba to link young people’s passion for arts with fundraising for meaningful social change.

Ashwini and Priya

Ashwini and Priya were passionate about singing and acting, but they,like other young people they knew, had few spaces to perform.  Together they founded Jazba, a local, youth-run “India’s Got Talent” to give young people a space to perform where all proceeds go to a hand-picked local social change organization.  In a world that is changing rapidly, accelerating social problems need accelerated solutions.  Ashwini and Priya demonstrate that young people have the power today to #LeadYoung and steer that change for the good of all.
