With the support of our funder, Amplify Change, Nazdeek is currently working in two informal settlement communities in Delhi. In Ambedkar Camp and Khajuri Khas, we’ve completed baseline assessments to determine the community’s understanding of various government services in relation to health, nutrition, sanitation, and housing. The data collected from these surveys will help us tailor our trainings to address community needs and identified knowledge gaps. Over the next few months, we’ll be conducting trainings in these communities on the state’s role in protecting human rights, and on the rights to safe motherhood, food, water and sanitation, adequate housing, and information.

With the support of our funder, Every Mother Counts, we are working in two additional communities in Delhi: Baprola (a rehabilitation/relocation colony) and Nangloi (an informal settlement). In both of these communities, we’ve completed baseline assessments and our rights-based training modules. Over the next few months, we will be working with community members on the SMS for Justice Project – which creates a community-based system to monitor and collect data on the implementation of government policies through mobile technology. Our community paralegals will be using text messages to report violations of access to healthcare, water, sanitation, and food occurring in their communities.
