CCS advances social change through public policy. Our work in education, livelihood, and policy training promotes choice and accountability across private and public sectors. To translate policy into practice, we engage with policy and opinion leaders through research, pilot projects and advocacy.
Our vision is that each individual leads a life of choice in personal, economic and political spheres and every institution is accountable.
