Nine Is Mine: A Primer

In October 2006, the Wada Na Todo Abhiyan initiated a children’s campaign for the fulfillment of the promise made in the National Common Minimum Program that 9% GDP would be allocated to Health (3%) & Education (6%).

Towards this objective – a call of ‘Nine Is Mine’ was launched, and more than 200,000 children from across 14 states of India signed up to petition the government to keep this promise, followed by a delegation to the Prime Minister, and meetings with more than 80 Members of Parliament towards the Budget Session of Parliament (2007).
