About the NGO:
Know Your Vote is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization started by college students who recognized the need for more civic and political awareness amongst their peers. Know Your Vote seeks to create long term and sustainable change in the mindset of India’s youth by increasing political awareness and stimulating those individuals to make educated voting decisions.

Our unique approach to the situation of voter apathy, through constant exposure to political news combined with our unconventional negative information campaign and empowering young Indian citizens to demand accountability, sets us apart from other such campaigns.

Furthermore, our novel concept of a chapter system allows for grassroots reach while mobilizing the masses assuring that we will enable the voice of the youth to be heard.

Know Your Vote is still in the very early stages of growth and is looking to establish its first 2 beta chapter models during this summer. However, the organization has already won awards for its unique business model as well as a grant from Ashoka's Youth Venture, an international NGO that seeks to create social change. Apart from that, the organization has also received support and advice from a number of successful entrepreneurs, industry professionals and has managed to get a senior consultant from Accenture on board as an adviser.
