Bridging the gap in access by working in collaboration with all stakeholders involved i.e. community, civil society and government. To be driven by the use of technology, research, advocacy and data analytics as levers.
We use the following 5 pillars as a part of our approach to solving the massive problem of policy implementation. Currently we use this approach to implement two policies in the state of Uttar Pradesh, i.e. Right to Education (RTE) 12 (1) (c) and Right to Food (PMMVY).
1. Ecosystem Building
Creating an ecosystem for better collaboration amongst the chief stakeholders viz. Government, Civil Society, Communities and Media to access to information in one place in a transparent manner. Currently the lack of collaboration, information sharing, cross learning and coordination between these stakeholders, is a large barrier to successful policy implementation.
2. Leveraging Technology
3. Building Self Reliance
We develop champions within the underprivileged communities we work with, to ensure that the awareness of welfare policies and how they can be accessed, is shared, owned and driven by the communities. This helps nudge the community towards self reliance and over time, reduce their dependence on the support of external interventions like ours. We also train and upskill these champions to convert them into local social entrepreneurs for sustainability. (please specify if you are promoting their personal sustainability – e.g. providing them a livelihood, or if you mean organisation sustainability).
