Bala Janaagraha collaboration with Design for Change
As an initiative to strengthen Bala Janaagraha's alumni engagement, we collaborated with Design for Change (the largest global movement of children driving change in their own communities) to ensure sustained engagement with alumni in the form of an experiential activity based learning intervention. Three schools in Mumbai participated in the “I Can” Initiative by DFC.
The key learning from this initiative is that alumni of Bala Janaagraha retained the learnings from the program. This will be extended to multiple cities and schools in 2016-17.
Bala Janaagraha collaboration with AIF
Bala Janaagraha collaborated with the American Indian Foundation (AIF) for the second consecutive year to provide a fun-filled knowledge platform for 40 students from India and the USA.
MyCityMyBudget collaboration with Jana Pragati Centres
MyCityMyBudget collaborated with Jana Pragati Centres (Janalakshmi) to reach out to the urban poor groups.
Most of the urban poor in the city do not have access to platforms or channels for participation in local governance. The partnership with Jana Pragati Centre has given the campaign an opportunity to reach out to this section of the citizenry.
