Social Change for us means a transformation of our cultural and social institutions in such way that enables good governance, rapid human and socio-economic development for all. It is change which, guarantees – gainful employment opportunities and improvement in living conditions for all; drastic reductions in poverty levels, infant and maternal mortality; increase in life expectancy, literacy levels, security of life and property; establish rule of law, respect for human rights and social justice for all; ensuring freedom of expression and genuine democratic rule based on equitable representation and free & fair elections. It means developing institutions that will enable the unleashing of our enormous development potentials in competing effectively and contributing our fair share within the global comity of nations.
