Delhi, Sanjha Prayas – Bhagidari: A Model of Inclusive Governance

Project Description

Sanjha Prayas was an initiative under the Bhagidari program of the Government of Delhi. It was about ensuring inclusive governance through a platform for engagement – of the poor with the State. CURE as consultant to the Government, mobilized and organized 31 slum and resettlement communities in Delhi, supported their interactions with the State and created access to basic urban services. Interventions in the slums helped improve basic water and sanitation systems, access to power supply, ration, education and health services and citizenship – voter and adhaar cards. CURE facilitated many small interventions across all the settlements – clean up of the areas, fixing of taps, toilets and drains, and rewriting the power supply rules for the poor – making connection and user charges more affordable. CURE also worked with the 8500 resettled households in Savda Ghevra – helping them reconnect to old and new livelihoods by rebuilding their skills, connecting them to jobs and helping them set up micro enterprises.
