Himalini and Santayan lead the Thoughtshop Foundation team. Both are graduates of National Institute of Design Ahmedabad, with specialisations in Communication Design and Product Design. They have been using design thinking to address social challenges for over 25 years. Their core expertise lies in creating games, programmes and curricula to address social issues.


Youth Trainers started their journey as community based adolescents negotiating adverse life situations. Over the years they have grown with, and helped co-create the Community programme. Today have responsibilities at the YRC Federation level to monitor and manage the entire network of support-group clusters.


Youth Mentors are the next generation of young leaders from YRC Communities who have grown through the process and are now taking on more responsibilities, demonstrating their commitment to the YRC model. Mentors are supported by an even younger cadre of ~90 Children Mentors (16-18 year old) across YRCs.


A dedicated team of professionals support the TF programmes with a range of skills. This includes the TF kitchen team who ensures that everyone is fed hot, healthy and hygienic food.


The Governing Body supports the Leadership and Programme team to steer the organisation effectively and take policy decisions. The Team comprises senior and experienced professionals from communications, health, social development, disability, design, and finance sector.
