Yuva Chetna Kendra is a non-profit civil society organisation working sincen1984; based in Deoria district of Uttar Pradesh, the most populated state in India. Like all other districts in eastern Uttar Pradesh, Deoria too is a backward, predominantly rural district. A large part of the district is inundated by floods every year as swirling water in rivers originating in Nepal hills bring misery for the area's residents. Because of increasing fragmentation of agricultural land and resulting decrease in profit from agricultural operations, migration of the people from the district is a rule rather than an exception. No doubt the district has registered one of the highest sex ratios in the state.
