“When I heard about Civic Schools, I was thrilled by the concept. I believe, the goal of civic education should be to empower and help young people learn to use skills, knowledge and attitudes that will prepare them to be responsible citizens and Civic Schools is doing that .In addition,I like the fact that their focus is more of secondary students in community and public schools . I have known their work for several years and I am sure, this program will be beneficial for adolescents and youth as they are the future of our country. I wish them all the best.” - Ms.Pushpa Basnet, Founder, Early Childhood Development Center, CNN Hero 2012
