WE FOCUS ON....
Smallest social unit with unique function of producing and rearing children.
Every society has to prepare its young people for a place in adult life and teach them societal values through a process called education.
The economy is the social institution responsible for the production and distribution of goods.
A government is an institution entrusted with making and enforcing the rules of a society as well as with regulating relations with other societies.
Any civilization is composed of people who live together with a unified goal of survival to form a society.For the society to thrive four main institutions must work namely Family, Education, Government and Economics.
That means if there is a problem in the society, one or all these institutions are failing and if we can’t talk about them, then we are the problem.Active civic engagement becomes primal in solving our ailing thus impoverished society.
Civic engagement means working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes.
Civic engagement promotes self awareness, accountability and a more responsive society.
