Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship and Democracy (www.janaagraha.org) was founded by Swati Ramanathan and Ramesh Ramanathan in December 2001. It is registered under the Indian Trusts Act, 1882. Janaagraha s mission is to transform the quality of life in India s cities and towns. We work with citizens to catalyse active citizenship in city neighbourhoods and with governments to institute reforms to city governance (what we call city-systems). Civic Learning, Civic Participation and Advocacy and Reforms are Janaagraha's three major strands of work to accomplish its mission. Janaagraha s Civic Learning and Civic Participation programs are sought to be anchored under the I Change My City brand
