The vision, stated below, that emerged as a result

achieved in different fields in a period of say 25
years. CCI serving as an umbrella organization
envisages a plan and a mechanism for a joint and
mutually complimentary effort for the specialized
NGOs to achieve these targets.
Muslims’ India Vision
Important aspects of the vision that the partner
NGOs of CCI have agreed upon to strive to achieve is
given as under:
India be the homeland for worlds’ second largest and
very strong Muslim Community living at, and
practicing, peace and harmony with others and
enhancing its potential and resources to surge ahead
in contributing to make India strong, a peace loving
country and a nation striving to establish truth and
justice on its own people and standing for the same
cause in the global community of nations.
For the vision to be a reality, CCI plans to
coordinate the efforts of Indian Muslim NGOs to
achieve the following common minimum objectives
which the partners NGOs have agreed to work for.
1. Total literacy by 2030 particularly in target
districts. This is achievable by mobilizing the
Imams to use Mosques for making the youngsters
literate, encouraging the Muslim literate women to
make use of their potentials by opening up
home-based schools and mobilizing parents to send
their children for the purpose of basic education.
2. Mobilizing the daily earners, woman and poverty
ridden Muslims in the target districts to form Self
Help Groups (SHG) and taste the prosperity so
3. Introduce Community Counseling Centres to settle
the disputes among Muslims and make them popular
among Muslim women in particular. This will help a
great deal in restoring the social fabric of Muslim
society. Mobilization of Imams and Ulema for serving
to this need will also be made use of.
4. Mobilize and organize health caravan for
popularizing in the masses the idea of good health
and making them aware of the needs and significance
of health care, and helping them to make use of
government health schemes and facilities available.
In a period of time few diseases which are common in
the local people will be made special target for
5. Introduce in the masses such cultural and sport
activities which develop healthy and competitive
spirit and make use of government facilities
available for this purpose.
Partner NGOs of CCI, apart from concentrating on
executing their own programs will incorporate and
implement all or any of the above objective in their
agenda, develop resources and other necessary
requirements needed for the purpose.
The Network will thus help implement a programme on
an all India basis and particularly in the districts
which are more supportive to the objective and
programme of CCI.
The twenty five year target for every area finalized
in a grand meeting of CCI, will be yearwise
distributed so as to enable CCI to assess the
achievements and provide support to the partner
NGOs, if found wanting.
