During the Indian struggle for Independence and the making of the Constitution, we dreamt of a democratic India to secure all its citizens Justice, Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity. Even now, the global narrative is such that India is recognized as the biggest democracy in the world. However, the reality is far from that dream and that narrative today. The fact is India ranks 46th in the Global Democracy Index (2022 report) out of the 167 countries worldwide.

This is also reflected in our education system and family structures too. Our belief is the root cause of seeing 54% dropout by Grade 8 and 62% dropout by Grade 10 in the region we work in is a result of the non-democratic education system. This has resulted in a 50% literacy rate in Harda.

Values we want to build and facilitate through our work are Democracy, Inclusion, Fun, Growth, and Partnership
