Our mission is to organize children and adults in residential areas, as units of Inclusive Neighborhood Parliaments, including Children's Parliaments. Our forums being small, normally about thirty persons/families, ensures that even “small voices” are heard, and every person gets recognition and scope to grow.
Children and adults decide together on matters that affect them. Instead of powerlessness, they have agency. For children, such involvements are a hands-on training for collaborative. citizenship. Including adults, there can be global impact in the life of each and every human being.
These forums are federated, leading to children’s parliaments at village/school, sub-district, district , state, nation. After nearly two decades, 100,000s of neighborhood units of people public are already organized and federated in India. More projects have been started in Africa, Europe and South America.
