The Yugma Network is grateful for all of its collaborators who help us everyday to see the world in new ways, question the things going on around us, guide us, and work with us to fight for environmental justice. We have been connected to many of our collaborators even before the Network had a name, and hope to continue working with many more old and new, local and global level groups in the future.
This space is to appreciate all the inspiring work which our collaborators have poured their sweat and blood into. You can click on the link to their website to know more.
If you would like to collaborate with us for any project, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be more than happy to work together!

LetIndiaBreathe believes we have a robust system, enough resources and multiple issues to solve. But we also believe, it’s we who can make things work. We know our problems, because we deal with them everyday. With the advent of technology, we can now speak to the authorities about our problems. Even collectively. Although some people might claim so, LetIndiaBreathe is not an initiative of any political party, we will fight any party that comes to power and does not listen to its citizens.

Vikalp Sangam is Hindi for 'Alternatives Confluence'. Across India this question is being answered by a multitude of grassroots and policy initiatives.

This is part of a larger process in which the co-host organizations are involved, at networking alternatives in India and internationally.

Youth for Swaraj seeks to engage the youth of India to recover its past, shape its present and guide its future in the light of Swaraj. Youth is about willingness to think afresh, courage to question every 'given', to interrogate every orthodoxy and about ability to come up with out-of-box solutions to age old problems. It is about discovering the world outside our cocoons, about speaking truth to power. It is about seeking meaningful and positive alternatives. Swaraj shows us the way towards such an alternative.

Kalpavriksh is a non-profit organisation working on environmental and social issues. The group began in 1979 with a campaign led by students to save Delhi’s Ridge Forest. Kalpavriksh believes that a country can develop meaningfully only when ecological sustainability and social equity are guaranteed, and a sense of respect for, and oneness with nature, and fellow humans is achieved. It is a non-hierarchical organisation and the group takes all decisions after appropriate debate and discussion.

National Alliance of People's Movements (NAPM) emerged in 1992 after senior activists undertook a long national tour of 15 states, as an alliance of progressive people’s organisations and movements. While retaining their autonomous identities, these organizations and movements work together towards the primacy of rights of communities over natural resources, conservation and governance, decentralised democratic development and a just, sustainable and egalitarian society in the true spirit of globalism. We stand against corporate globalisation, communalism and religious fundamentalism, patriarchy, casteism, untouchability and discrimination of all kinds.
