Friends Union for Energising Lives (FUEL) stems from the understanding that the youth in India form one of the most vulnerable groups, who on the one hand are expected to be the leaders to determine the destiny of India, and on the other lack essential information and opportunities to succeed in life.

Youth in the age group of 15-29 years comprise 27.5% of the population. There exists a huge potential to increase the contribution of this class of the nation’s citizenry by increasing their labour force participation and their productivity.
