Hello, I am Binit H. Gandhi from India. Since I was diagnosed with Diabetes 3 years ago, I immediately felt that there should be a common platform for young people having Diabetes. So when I started looking online, I came across the IDF and their Young Leaders in Diabetes programme and right from the first day I became very keen to join this programme and participate in their activities and events.
When I could finally attend the World Diabetes Congress and the YLD Leadership Training Programme, it literally changed me and made me a better person. I met so many wonderful people from all walks of life. It was like a dream turning into reality. Being elected an Ex-officio member of the YLD Executive Council, I would like to dedicate myself in developing the YLD Programme even better in every way I can. With the help of the energetic IDF team, its Member Associations and the never ending support from the Young Leaders, I would love to make each and everyone's dream become a reality.
Besides being an active Young Leader, I am working in the field of electrical contractors providing specialized services and consultancy all across India. I am also associated as a regional head with Citizens for Accountable Governance (CAG) which conducts governmental projects in India involving the youth.
