One important objective of CCI is to develop a Muslim India Vision and also the vision of the role Muslim should play in building the nation and solving the problems of our country.


The vision, stated below, that emerged as a result of mutual consultation of the partner NGOs, working in different fields is likely to set target to be 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 earned.


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 eradication.


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.
