ABS CLUB AND COMMITTEE CELL

Inclusion – which stands for inclusive growth and activism. As a society, it is our responsibility to remove all
barriers which uphold exclusion. Inclusion is recognizing our universal "oneness" and interdependence. It also means acknowledging that we are "one" even though we are not the "same". Inclusiveness can help bring into mainstream, those who are otherwise excluded from mainline developments. You may look at inclusiveness in the financial services, in education and health at both the urban and rural level, in information and communication, in agriculture etc., or in any other areas of your choice.
