“Our typical response to issues around us is to keep complaining! Doesn’t help much. Of all the people who can solve it, only we remain affected due to the unresolved problem. Better, therefore, to inform ourselves of the solution and be a part of it to improve our life quickly. Can we all drop our apathy to become ACTIZENS®️ – Alert, Informed, Active Citizens?

Getting the students to learn from the heroes of the past and present to create a great future is the current mission of Desh Apnayen Foundation. 

Come, join the movement. Aao hum sab desh apnayen, chalta hai ko duur bhagayen, bhavishya bachayen, bhagya banaye…”
