Mountain Children’s Foundation


RevolutionizingChildren’s Perception

The idealism and energy of youth is the best antidote to the forces of marginalization, corruption, helplessness, and apathy under which most rural communities struggle to survive. We tap that energy to help young people create a better world for themselves and those around them. It is nothing less than a revolution in how the people – especially the young people – of the mountains perceive themselves and how they address problems in their communities.

In a region where many still lack running water, toilets, electricity, health care, access to education and economic opportunity, The Mountain Children’s Foundation (MCF) works to empower children in rural mountain villages to improve their communities from the ground up.
Our “bottom-up, inside-out” model of development leverages the pwoer of collective action and the energy and idealism of youth to create organic, lasting impacts that strengthen communities, build citizenship, combat discrimination, and raise the profile of child rights and child participation.
Over the last two decades, we have developed a network of children’s groups and non-governmental organizations across the Indian state of Uttarkhand that collaborate to remove barriers for children and enhance the role of young people transforming their communities.
