The Government of Delhi, aims to scale up citizen engagement in delivery of services by setting up innovative and localised community led models of urban governance called Ambedkar Kendra (AK). These centers are being envisaged as one stop as facilitation centers for provision of comprehensive schemes and services for the residents living in and around the centre.
To do this, CFAR is working in five geographies to strengthen community engagement, by facilitating and training community members representing different marginalized groups to set up Help-desk teams in each settlement that get linked with the Workers Facilitation Centres (WFC) so that together they can ensure service inclusion and outreach to the most marginalised groups.
The intervention will reach out to 81, 350 beneficiaries living across 20 JJ clusters/resettlement colonies in five districts of Delhi.
