Small Acts, when multiplied by billions of people can transform the world!

Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship and Democracy (www.janaagraha.org) was founded by Swati Ramanathan and Ramesh Ramanathan in December 2001. Janaagraha’s mission is to transform the quality of life in India’s cities and towns. We work with citizens to catalyze active citizenship in city neighborhoods and with governments to institute reforms to city governance (what we call “city-systems”). Bala Janaagraha- Janaagraha's Civic Learning programme, Civic Participation, and Advocacy and Reforms are three major strands of work to accomplish its mission.
