APJ Abdul Kalam

“I have started the ‘Lead India 2020’ movement to empower the youth of India trhough value-based education and ‘Aap Badho Desh Ko Badhao’ leadership training. The fundamental philosophy: Individual development leads to National development. Lead India 2020 Foundation is now on the path of carrying the torch forward, focused on lighting the minds and channelizing hidden potential of over 540 million youth of India below the age of 25, which I consider is the most powerful resource on Earth.

Lead India 2020 is the 2nd National Movement, a mission-oriented programme for transforming youth of the country. I am confident; this movement will transform youth to achieve developed India by 2020.

India has to be transformed into an economically developed nation by 2020. Every citizen and every constituent of the country has to participate in the Lead India 2020 – a national movement to lead the Indian youth who constitute 55 per cent of the country’s population, to lead India to lead the world by 2020.

Lead India 2020 movement is training lakhs of students in many districts of Andhra Pradesh. I happened to know the transformation that has taken place among the students after undergoing the “Aap Badho Desh Ko Badhao”training. Lead India training programmes have created confidence in me that the youth of our country trained by them are on the right path and the spirit of “We Can Do It” is radiating everywhere.

I extend my warm greetings and felicitations to all those who are associated with Lead India 2020 movement and wish their efforts for the movement all success. Lead India National Clubs (LINCs) will unite all educational institutions, corporations and other institutions to share networks and resources to strengthen efforts to solve our nation’s problems.”

Youth and Personality Development

Personality as Mahatma Gandhi said orchestrates the music of life. “Lead India 2020” National Movement with its programme titled “Aap Badho Desh Ko Badhao” calls for igniting, training and nurturing Individual development with values leading to better National Development. Indian population of 1.13 billion has 47.8% of children and youth below 25 years of age, forecasts the working average Indian at about 29 years by 2020, compared to other countries that will have seniors as majority.
