Why do we need Regional Chapters?
Foundation for Restoration of National Values aims at stimulating change in the positions of responsibility, at a germinal level. FRNV does not restrict itself within the region of Delhi and aims at expanding its motives to all parts of the country. The objectives of the organization will only be fruitfully achieved if it is implemented across the country.
The efficient functioning of the regional chapters will ensure effective implementation of police reforms in the different states as per Supreme Court directives, implementation of value-based education in the different tiers of education across all states of the country and to implement electoral and administrative reforms across the nation in an attempt to prevent value erosion and eradicate corruption.
Foundation for Restoration of National Values has five Regional Chapters:
- Kerala Chapter
- Jamshedpur Chapter
- Mumbai Chapter
- Chennai Chapter
- Bangalore Chapter
The Kerala Chapter was established with the main focus area being value based leadership training, mentoring, marketing, branding, business development and turnaround strategies. It aims to restore the national and cultural values of the country so as to enrich and empower the administration as well as the citizens. It is dedicated towards strengthening ethical standards in the Parliament, the Executive, Judiciary and all other agencies that interface with citizens. It hopes to institute and propagate ethical knowledge and disciplines without any distinction of gender, caste, creed or religion.

The President Dr. E. Sreedharan addressed the audience and there were lively exchange of views after which following areas were identified as the immediate concern of Kochi Chapter.
1. Values-based education in all schools of Kerala.
2. Improving the standard of technical education in Kerala.
3. Improving the academic environment in schools and colleges, which are presently plagued with students unrest, disruption of classes, students resorting to suicides on flimsy grounds, political interference etc.
4. Reluctance of police to intervene in students’ unrest and violence.
5. Prevent frequent water logging of prime areas of the city.

Dr. Devika Menon was nominated by the President as Convener for the Kochi Chapter of FRNV. Volunteers were invited to join task force to take up each of the items mentioned above and five Task Forces were formed to take responsibility for the tasks identified. As a follow up action, the task force on values-based education decided to conduct a survey in Ernakulam District which revealed that except for schools and colleges run by Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan, Chinmaya Mission, Christian Institutions; no moral education is being imparted in Govt. and aided schools. It showed that 80% of the students are not exposed to value education. Subsequently, FRNV team headed by the President met the Hon’ble Education Minister of Kerala, Prof. C. Raveendranath and requested for values-based education to be introduced in Government and aided schools.
In regard to the dilution of standards in technical education, FRNV has filed Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the High Court of Kerala which has been admitted.
