Our Team

The Yuva Ekta Foundation team is a small ensemble of dedicated dynamic people who come from very diverse backgrounds. The common binding thread is that of belief- we believe that we CAN make a change and we strive to do exactly that!



Puneeta has been working on self empowerment and healing with young people from marginalized as well as privileged backgrounds for over a decade, using Theatre and the Arts. A keen documentary film maker, she envisages the Foundation as a catalyst inspiring young people become agents of social change, and dreams of setting up a Global Youth Citizenship Network.
