Empowering Marginalised Grassroots Citizens And Challenging Inequality
We work by empowering and building the capacity of grassroots communities to express voice and exercise agency in demanding democratic and social accountability from duty bearers and public office holders. We achieve social inclusion through dynamic grassroots community organising, social mobilization, movement building, long-term partnerships with grassroots networks and proactive engagement with government agencies and duty bearers.
