AGENTS OF CHANGE
AGENTS OF CHANGE PILOT PROGRAM-DELHI PROJECT
Agents of change turned out to be a “community based and community-driven program which was designed by the community members themselves “. Mothers transformed this opportunity beautifully to seek solutions to the problems that are feasible and manageable to them. Our sponsored family groups learned to partner together and work in a structured way with commitment towards a common goal.
We know there is a wide array of socio-economic disparities present in the community but agents of change helped us understand that “we do not have an overall solution for the varied issues in the communities but we together can initiate small changes which will augment the effort in impacting the issues and together we can grow. “
