Mere Mat se Mera Mat

Mere Mat se Mera Mat(roughly translated as: My vote is my opinion or My vote according to my choice), was a campaign in collaboration with the Election Commission of India, keeping in mind the upcoming 2017 Legislative Assembly Elections in the state of Gujarat.

The main purpose of the campaign was to encourage young people to actively participate in the electoral process and to promote awareness so that they register themselves as a voter.


Braving the harsh summer loo during the month of April and May, fellows from Sauhard travelled to more than 30 districts all over the state, as a part of the campaign trail. Awareness was created by the means of organized public gatherings, street-plays and door-to-door campaigning.

Fellows had the opportunity to meet the Mamlatdar of the district which was a learning in itself.  The problems and challenges faced by them, and how they are vigorously improving their mechanisms, in accordance with the constraints, the entire journey changed the perspective of many fellows, lending faces and stories to an otherwise effective but faceless organization.
