In the last seven years, the Bal Panchayat has grown from strength to strength, empowering children and bringing a qualitative change in their lives. It has encouraged its members to play a participatory role in matters that affect children and it has worked continuously towards their total development. By offering a variety of experiences and opportunities, the Bal Panchayat has made it possible fore children to discover and develop their desire to strive for a better future. This book brings to light the inspiring story of the Bal Panchayat.
