Every year, a series of Civic Fests is conducted as part of the Bala Janaagraha programme. Children from several schools across India participate in these fests, which are conducted at different levels: Mini (area-level), City-level, Zonal and National.

Children participating in these fests are asked to work on a specific civic issue in their city and demonstrate a change as a result of their work. Also, they are asked to capture their work in the form of a report, which is then evaluated. Here are two samples of the report.

These will give you an idea of the intense effort the children put in to improve their neighbourhood!
