Ahmedabad: The 5th National Change Makers Assembly of WECAN campaign was inaugurated on 3rd of February at Ahmedabad by Human rights Activist Fr. Cedric Prakash & noted dancer & activist Dr Malika Sarabhai.The programme began with the hoisting of WE CAN the flag and opening of a poster exhibhition on diverse issues affecting women rights. Ru-ba-ru the 5th NCMA started from February 3 and continued till February 4 with 300 changemakers and volunteers from different part of the country.


Speaking at the inaugural session Fr Cedric Prakash said it is important for each of us to understand the Constituion of the country and values enshrined in it. He further said we have betrayed the values of justice,liberty, equality and fraternity even though we achieved independence on it’s basis. Dr Malika Sarabhai explained how the human being is controlled by many emotions including violence. It is important for all of us to recognise the component of violence within us and each of us should be responsible enough to behave differently.


Following her speech there was a perfromance by the Darpana troupe on a poem written by Deepti Naval from the book “Black wind”.The powerful presentation, on the violence faced by women , left the audience dumb -founded!


The first session of the Assembly was on a drama on Munshi Prenchand’s story focussing on caste discrimination and how it affects the thinking process of people. Following the drama there were song sessions and nukkad discussions on diverse issues like casteism, communalism etc.
