Building Civic Values & Community Engagement in young minds..

As India goes to polls in a gigantic democratic exercise, easily the largest and mind boggling size in the world, low voter turn out is a serious problem and has to be tackled. Vatsal Chaya joined hands with local government efforts as official partners to build voter motivation in our region. Many Access students had a wonderful time experiencing democratic values in action, citizenship, and advocacy and motivating the community. Chandigarh administration is determined to have the highest voting percentage in the country and we are happy to contribute our efforts.

Not to mention some curious geese too at the scenic Sukhna Lake!!
