Pahal: Shasan Sudhar Ki Ore promotes grass root intervention for improving governance in rural areas since April 2009. Under the initiative we are working for the poor and marginalized rural masses to empower them to demand and access their entitlements and public services with the knowledge and use of the tools of good governance like RTI, social audit, revived gram sabhas, citizen’s charter and e-governance. Pahal also works towards people-centric, transparent and accountable governance through greater participation of women and disadvantaged sections in local self governance, increased responsiveness from local administration towards Gram Sabha (people’s assembly for self governance) and tools of good governance and active role of Panchayats in bottom-up planning and monitoring.
