WHO WE ARE: O.Y.S.T.E.R (Organization by Youth for Social Transformation and Environmental Recoup) is a social responsibility based registered Non-Governmental Organization, founded in the year 2009. It is the result of the efforts of an ambitious, enthusiastic and dedicated group of youngsters who wished to tap the hidden potential within citizens, and channelize that strength towards community development. We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But if that drop was not in the ocean, I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. I do not agree with the big way of doing things. Mother Teresa (1910-1997)

Why O.Y.S.T.E.R


The world today is a much developed place with all the comforts just a snap away from man. We have seen much, much and much more than our primates would have ever visualized in their wildest dreams. Yet there is much more to be seen, heard, felt and be created. Its not just the ever advancing technological development. We intend to focus on MAN.on ourselves and our not so privileged counterparts who live amidst us in this very society of ours, right next to us. We all have a heart and that is what it takes to keep us all alive. We forget that that heart is also capable of showing compassion. We gladly part with merely a few coins when our generosity gets the better of us.

IS THAT ALL IT TAKES TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO BRING ABOUT A CHANGE? IS THAT ALL WE ARE CAPABLE OF? The answer would be a NO. Many scholars have despaired over the apathy of men towards ills in our society. But we at O.Y.S.T.E.R feel that every single persons contribution is the need of the hour required for building a better society! Truly we survive on the single motto EACH AND EVERY PERSON CAN CONTRIBUTE TO HIS SOCIETY! IT IS A MUST FOR EACH AND EVERY INDIVIDUAL TO TAKE UP THE RESPONSIBILITY OF PROTECTING HIS OWN SOCIETY! At O.Y.S.T.E.R we believe that it is the responsibility of everyone to come out of his complex self centered world and play his part in making this society a better place to live in. We have entered the stage where the Government owing to various reasons is working under tremendous pressures. The people who elect their representatives and those who form the government of late have fallen into a kind of apathy and callousness towards human development. This silence of the citizens of civil society and that of the government, we fear, will lead to the darkest period of our nations history--a rule by brute force.

O.Y.S.T.E.R has evolved to direct its sincere and genuine efforts to sensitizing the citizens of our civil society and the elected representatives to work towards effecting a positive change in the society. At O.Y.S.T.E.R we are dedicated to the cause of awakening social responsibility, political awareness among citizens, and establish social harmony, peace and justice. It is a platform to bring together all the drops in the main stream under the rubric of SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY & SOCIAL ACTIVISM and to canalize it through the society with all due diligence and make it better in all possible ways....O.Y.S.T.E.R through its programmes and networking with other Organizations and Institutions organizes perspective building activities, carries out campaigns, and makes people realize their role in community development and the positive change they are capable of bringing about with their active involvement even if in a small way.

The mission of O.Y.S.T.E.R is empowerment of Youth and inculcation of individual responsibility-- sensitizing people to act on social issues and contribute their might to their society.
We work with following aims & objectives:
1. To empower youth. 2. To direct our efforts toward establishing social harmony, social justice and peace 3. To create political awareness and Inculcate Individual responsibility 4.

To awaken environmental awareness for a pollution free environment 8. To provide health care, medical aid, awareness of AIDS, cancer etc. 9. To extend help during natural calamities 10. To facilitate free legal aid to the needy.

Our vision is Youth empowerment for social transformation.
We aspire for a society reflected in Gurudevs writings and particularly in his soul Let my country awake
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high Where knowledge is free Where the world has not been broken up into fragments By narrow domestic walls Where words come out from the depth of truth Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit Where the mind is led forward by thee Into ever-widening thought and action Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
