COVA Peace Network Empowers Students Through Compassionate Citizenship Program


The Compassionate Citizenship Program, a joint initiative by the Education department and COVA Peace Network, is encouraging moral education among students in government, private, and residential schools. Through experiential learning, students are delving into critical societal issues such as child labour, dowry, elder care, and participatory budgeting.

Under this program, students undergo training in social advocacy, equipping them with the skills to analyse issues, propose solutions, and take action either individually or collaboratively with peers, family, and community members.

They are also encouraged to engage with elected representatives, officials, and faith leaders to address societal challenges and contribute to positive social transformation.

Mazher Hussain, representing COVA, highlighted that alongside their moral education, students are also introduced to prominent social reformers like Raja Rammohan Roy, Swami Vivekananda, and Dr. B. R. Ambedkar in their social studies curriculum.

 

The Education department and COVA Peace Network aim to expand the Compassionate Citizenship Program to encompass 3,000 schools across 22 districts starting from the academic year 2024-25. This initiative seeks to instill compassion, empathy, and proactive citizenship among students, empowering them to become agents of positive change in their communities.
