The World House Project

The World House Project seeks to realize Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of the world as a large house in which "we must learn somehow to live with each other in peace.” We combine educating on human rights and nonviolence with building an active global network. Through education and the network, The World House Project provides the world with empowering resources and strategies that engender solidarity among all peoples to realize King’s vision.

Youth Working Group

Youth Working Group envisions to facilitate youth engagement with the World House Project, provide a platform for youth to voice their perspectives, understand how youth is experiencing the world and identify the youth led projects which have a prospect of high impact and find ways to document and collect learnings from them.

The Dais

The Dais started its journey in 2014 with a vision to empower and build leadership with children and youth and towards community development. The Dais team has worked with youth, leading educational institutions, international agencies, community based organisations, industry and government bodies on several initiatives  towards the achievement of sustainable development goals and a better life for all.
