Mission Bhartiyam is a India-based registered group of students and young professionals. It is an unfunded, voluntary initiative. Mission Bhartiyam works in the fields of Environment, Peace and Harmony, and democracy.
In the field of Peace and Harmony, Mission Bhartiyam works for peace by addressing conflict existing at different levels. For peacebuilding between communities, Mission Bhartiyam organises discussions, human chains, public demonstrations and peace rallies. We organize festival celebrations which are open to followers of all religions. We have also sent peace delegations to riot-hit areas. We have tried to contribute to peace and harmony beyond the Indian boundaries, in South Asia.
Under our “Bharat Nepal Paraspar Samvad”, we attempt to strengthen ties between India and Nepal. We have “Aaghaz-e Dosti” to develop bonds of trust and friendship between India and Pakistan.
In 2012, Mission Bhartiyam initiated “Tree for harmony”, wherein we planted “harmony trees” which symbolized brotherhood and prosperity and resist discrimination on the basis of gender, caste, class and nationality. It was organized in schools and educational institutions across South Asia.
For Democracy and issues of human rights, Mission Bhartiyam works by highlighting issues through discussions, seminars, college awareness programmes, public demonstrations and garnering support and demand action through signature campaigns, RTI filing and appealing to the authorities. We support many campaigns that highlight cases of violation of human rights and have a democratic and peaceful approach to seek resolution. We also promote human rights education through schools and college awareness programmes.
For Environment, we advocate for sustainable environment. We have tried to address different issues concerning the environment. We spread awareness about the environmental issues by organizing awareness programmes like painting, poster, debate and essay writing competitions in schools. We also organize awareness rallies.
Besides these, Mission Bhartiyam has also worked in fields of health care and sanitation wherein we have conducted health camps for poor, youth awareness programmes like an anti-drug rallies and annual youth awareness conferences, disaster management training and awareness workshops, visits to relief camps and slums. Our members also write articles on contemporary issues in newspapers.
