expected outcomes
Expected Outcomes
  • Base Outcomes: These are simple and basic outcomes that are to be achieved from each and every Civic Club member. It is important that these outcomes are the key focus while facilitating sessions. These outcomes focus on the first step towards changing attitudes and habits – awareness.
  • Mid-Level Outcomes:These outcomes focus on simple changes in attitudes and higher levels of awareness in civic club members (ME) and in spreading awareness to the family (through parent ripples). These outcomes are also influenced by the support from the school and teacher coordinator, from families and peer groups etc. We hope that mid-level outcomes are achieved from at least a third of the members in each club.

Expected Outcomes
  • High-Level Outcomes:These outcomes focus on deep levels of understanding and practice of core civic values. There are many influences on a child that bring about such deep learning, including family, school and peer groups, media etc. We hope that increasing numbers of our Civic Club members achieve high-level outcomes each year.

India can be called a developed country only when all her citizens are secured equal opportunities and are able to fulfill their dreams and aspirations!

It helps ME

What could happen when people are denied their Rights for a long duration of time? Violence, civil strife – affecting each one of us!

helps others ....

When all citizens are secured their Rights, we all enjoy a good quality of life, leading to peace & prosperity


Democracy is precious!With democracy, we have the chance to fight for a better quality of life – to secure our Rights!

  • Less than half the world’s countries are fully democratic
  • More than half the worlds populations live in oppressive systems with no respect for fundamental rights. China accounts for half that number
  • We are amongst the lucky minority! My democracy is precious and I must strengthen it! How? By engaging, cooperating, complaining and if required confronting – by being active citizens!

Active Citizens: are informed & aware of their civic Rights and duties, discharge their duties responsibly and secure their Rights effectively, go beyond their Rights & duties & stand up for the Rights of others, engage with the government.
