Testimonials

"Earlier we were very scared of going to any government officer for complaint but after working on this project we have the confidence to go and speak to anyone and explain our problems"

Sagar

Class 11th student, GSSS Ghamroj (Alipur 760)

"We understood how to use the concepts we study in classroom to solve real issues. Using the knowledge of our Fundamental Rights and Law we were able to convince our Sarpanch to install RO in our school. This success has given us a lot of confidence and we will not stop here. Whenever we see an issue in our village we will try to resolve"

Aman

Class 11th Student, GSSS Bhondsi

“The team at We, The People has helped teachers like me to understand and apply the principles of the constitution in our daily lives. I now truly realize why our Constitution is a ‘living document’. The project initiated as a part of this programme, instilled confidence and awareness. I learnt that if civic issues affect us, it is our duty to raise voice and act through proper channels. This is what we are guiding our students for; to make a small change at their level and spread the message around.”

Sanchita Kundu

Shiv Nadar School, Gurgaon

“It’s been a year of not just new learning, but almost like awakening of our conscience! The entire program was structured wonderfully. Initial response from students could easily be related to our very own attitude, “What Can I Do?” But with the help of carefully worked out roadmap from this programme, I have been able to bring desirable change in this notion. It has convincingly changed our approach and outlook towards civic concerns, thus making our Constitution a living document in true sense! It’s been a great association and we hope to carry the initiative to classrooms to enable our youth to become responsive and responsible citizens of tomorrow!”
