It gives me immense pleasure to present the second annual report of Association for Parivartan of Nation. An association which aims at the welfare of the unprivileged and marginalized while serving a platform for the young minds to express and collaboratively build strategies for sustainable development, while contributing towards a progressive, orderly and disciplined society.
APNA was started in 2018 with a mission to contribute towards a just society and eliminate discrimination and inequality of any and every kind. In the beginning, we were aware that it is an immense responsibility and not an easy task but it turned into a huge learning and unlearning experience for us. We faced many hurdles and challenges but the team remained constant, resolved challenges and converted them into opportunities. We aligned our campaigns and programs to United Nation’s sustainable development goals. In addition to our previous campaigns like Birsa school of child empowerment, Anti-human trafficking campaign, Marriage without the barriers, CNDP(children in need of care and protection) or adopt a child campaign, we have started new campaigns such as know your rights( SDG 16) ,campaign on Sec. 12(1)(c) of Right to Education Act – 2009 (SDG4), Climate Action (SDG 13), E-participation (SDG 10), Gender Equality (SDG 5), APNA Covid19 response 2020 (SDG 2 & 3) to address as many issues as we can. And today, we look back with gratitude and humility that APNA has been able to change many lives. It is with a sense of pride and satisfaction that I can say, our team has done remarkable justice with every campaign. As a president of this organisation I pledge to work day and night as there is still much to be done to achieve an inclusive, equitable and just society.
