Desh Apnayen Sahayog Foundation – Creating ACTIZENS – alert, informed and active citizens
New Delhi: Founded in 2015 to create a movement from apathy to ownership, Desh Apnayen Sahayog Foundation has been running various initiatives, offered at no cost to the communities that it works with.
Its flagship initiative – The ACTIZENS’ Club – gives school students an opportunity to hone leadership skills as the Club President, Vice-President and as members. It also gives them access to various activities – research, contests, workshops, community service activities, etc. throughout the year along with recognition and rewards.
The Foundation is relaunching The ACTIZENS’ Club through online sessions that will be held for principals and teachers on 18th August and 20th August 2021. The link to register is www.bit.ly/RelaunchSessionOn18thAugust. The details are also available at www.fb.com/DeshApnayen.
Speaking on the eve of the relaunch, Mr Vallabh Bhanshali, the founder, said, “Our mission is to create ACTIZENS – alert, informed and active citizens. I am happy to learn that the new version of the Club has been made more efficient for teachers and students alike, building on the experience of the pandemic period and has also been made more impactful.
Over the past year and a half, teachers all over the country have had to work much harder on teaching students online and navigating some of the challenges that the pandemic threw at us. Our country in particular, and the world in general, are going through an enormously difficult time on multiple fronts. The need for more thoughtful and active citizens is more acute than ever before. I encourage schools to partner with us so that we can collectively work towards creating Democracy 2.0.”
