Raising children to become good citizens of the country and the world doesn’t happen by chance. It happens because parents, schools, and communities develop good citizens. Children, the citizens of tomorrow, must not only know their rights and responsibilities but also show solidarity with other people and need to give something back to society.
India, the fastest growing democracy in the world, has a large young population that needs to be encouraged and trained about active citizenship, imparted fundamental values, intercultural and civic competences. In this regard, LXL Ideas initiated a civic awareness programme for school children with the objective of transforming today’s children to active citizens of tomorrow.
