OUR IMPACT SINCE 2010
WITH YOUR HELP
520 community leaders from different parts of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Jharkhand, and Madhya Pradesh, joined our training programmes, as we made a rapid, systematic, and successful move online. And we upped the pace on our online platforms, with Citizen Cafes every week on Instagram and Zoom, reaching more than 7000 citizens across India - together building a constitutional lens on Covid 19, current issues, and legislation during this period.
BECAUSE OF OUR PARTNERS, WE'RE DOING MORE GOOD FOR MORE PEOPLE

Laxmi, Team Member,
“Thank you so much for reinforcing the Preamble. It reminds me of one Hindi word "Bhaag lo", so it is important to take part in the situation which makes you uncomfortable.. not to run away from that. So, take part by thinking or through small or big actions.”
Sheetal, Jan Sahas
“We knew that Constitution exists. But till date we did not know how can we connect it to our lives. How can it be made applicable? The facilitative method in the sessions was very impactful.”
Disha Gupta, Student, Sharda University
“The Preamble was explained like it has been never before in our schools. It took me back to my Political Science classes back in school. I enjoyed the session very much and it came as a positive change from Science to Social Sciences to me.”
