"I, as a citizen of India, have decided to volunteer for the Annual Status of Education Report 2014. This effort aims to engage citizens and the government in the process of ensuring quality education for the children of this country.
For the past 9 years, volunteers like me have traveled to the farthest districts and reached the remotest villages. We have gone from Kashmir to Kerala and from Gujarat to Arunachal, to conduct this survey and collect information with utmost sincerity.
Today, along with 30,000 volunteers across India, I am going to be a part of the largest citizen-led survey of India. I pledge to carry forward the honest work and vision of those who have come before me and become an example for those who will follow me in the years to come.
I understand the importance of recording only correct information in the survey sheets and pledge to do so with complete honesty. Under no circumstances will I avoid my responsibilities during the course of the survey. I pledge to uphold the integrity of the important role this movement has entrusted in me and play my part in building a better India."
