Citizen Report Card

A bottom-up advocacy tool that stimulates dialogue between the civil society and government based on public opinions toward the quality of public services. In February 2011, I facilitated a survey on education-for-all and Mahatma Gandhi National Employment Guarantee Act schemes in selected districts across Jharkhand state. I then organized a dissemination workshop in the state capital, Ranchi, where recommendations to improve services were discussed by civil society organizations and government officers. Please contact me for a hard copy of the publication.

Jharkhand Right to Information Coalition

The formation of the statewide alliance was brought into action through institution development efforts-including establishing the organization structure and operational mechanism- and through capacity building workshops on M&E, documentation, communication and advocacy skills.

Right to Information Clinic

In order to galvanize awareness and increase access to entitlements under governmental schemes, I helped to establish RTI clinics, cascading training programs through coalition members to 18 Panchayats, 180 self-help groups and 264 youth volunteers across five districts in Jharkhand state.
