Former US President Barack Obama is on a visit to India to host a town hall event in Delhi for the Obama Foundation. 

"The Town Hall will expand the conversation about what it means to be an active citizen and make an impact and how the Obama Foundation can support emerging leaders in this effort," the official statement reads. Mr Obama will interact with an estimated 280 young leaders from across India.

"I will be conducting a townhall with young leaders of India who can share with me some of the works they are trying to do to make communities better and also answer questions on how Obama Foundation can help," Mr Obama said in a Facebook message.

The India visit is part of Mr Obama's three-nation tour that also includes China and France.

Mr Obama has previously hosted events with young leaders in Germany, Indonesia, and Brazil.

Obama, who arrived in Delhi on Thursday, is also likely to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
