As India registers strong economic growth, significant challenges remain with regard to inequity, unemployment, food insecurity, natural disasters and climate change. Given these complexities, direct participation of people will increasingly play a transformative role.
Synergized efforts of 1.25 billion Indians in cohesion can be a force multiplier, volunteers as channels of delivery can be instrumental in achieving many of the social developmental mission mode schemes aimed at achieving an inclusively developed India by 2022. India@75 is strategically positioned as a facilitator to provide a platform for stakeholders to converge, collaborate and forge partnerships through its various volunteer initiatives the National Volunteer Week..
I am sure the NVW will motivate and encourage all Indians across geographical and social spectrums to get engaged with the nation building exercise and give their bit to be a part of the Indian growth story, which is bound to be a gratifying experience.
