Eashan truly believes that young people today are unfairly oppressed. His believe that everyone can make a change resonates throughout his speech.
In 2014, at the age of 16, Eash started a charitable foundation called The Youth Project. He has led this organisation from 5 people to over 1400 people, and from one town to 10 countries in 2 short years! They have now run over 100 projects. He believes the youth are more powerful than anyone can imagine. He is extremely ambitious, and tries to positively impact the world in everything he does.
Eashan has been featured on a number of radio and TV programmes, as well as securing partnerships with a number of important people and organisations. His achievements have not gone unrecognised as he has received a few awards including an award from UK's Prime Minister and Prince Charles, and been credited for what he has done, especially at such a young age.
His aim is to create a global movement of young people creating change, and he is making major leaps forward in his mission to do so. He spends a lot of time in India serving with an organisation called Manav Sadhna.
