Promoting & Strengthening Democracy

Promoting and Strengthening Democracy This is a common strand that runs through all Mehergarh Programs, whether it is youth trainings or campaign against bonded labor or even anti sexual harassment trainings; informing people of their rights and responsibilities; the power that the system gives to the people and how to use that power.The Program entails events, trainings and campaigns as the democratic system of our country faces various challenges. This can include supporting certain reforms, resisting other regressive decisions of the Government. Supporting the devolution and the 18th amendment of our constitution is one example and developing strategies to counter militant ideologies is another. In addition developing an understanding of a Parliamentary system and for the citizens to become responsible, active and engaged remains the objective of this area of initiatives.
