Mark Your Presence was founded on the idea that we can create more change in our country if we work together. We are a non- profit and non -partisan organisation which is working with the support of the Election bodies of Maharashtra.
Our mission is to reach out to the youth of our country and make them aware about the democratic process and the importance of participating in it. We believe that its important to make the citizens who are under 18 years of age aware, as they will be the future voters of our country.
We also enrol all the citizens who are above the age of 18 so that they can actively participate in the elections to come. We understand that the power of the youth is not only important but also vital in shaping the course of any democracy and therefore having educated, political aware voter’s is crucial for our democracy.
The Mark Your Presence leadership initiative is a six month intensive program for university students who are keen to build a stronger Democracy with educated voters. The program is designed to deliver core skills in public leadership along with the experience of working with an organisation that works towards making every institution in the country a voter-friendly campus.
