Why I Why
Kritaya Sreesunpagit has created a system which nurtures the ideas of young people in developing and launching plans for social development. Faced with a plethora of social problems, the energetic youth of Thailand have an abundance of ideas for change, yet a scarcity of guidance to implement these schemes. Her innovative approach entails nurturing and connecting youth to resources which will support their ideas for social improvement through her organization. Despite many governmental programmes, YIY is the only organization which offers youth an opportunity to design and implement an intervention from its base. Through the work of Youth Innovation Venture, a competition providing professional and leadership support to social venture start-ups, hundreds of young people have launched projects concerning poverty alleviation, environmental protection and educational reform. Through building a network of contacts through her fairs, Sreesunpagit brings together young innovators with international organizations such as UNICEF and government related bodies.
