Haqdarshak: Generating Livelihoods and Empowering Citizens through Access to Welfare Schemes

In partnership with Haqdarshak Empowerment Solutions Private Limited [HESPL], we aim to empower citizens, both rural and urban, by providing easy access to information about and last-mile support for applications to relevant welfare schemes. We do this through a technology platform that enables the collection of citizen information and displays eligible welfare schemes.

We have currently implemented this initiative in Hisar, Haryana to help low-income citizens, access eligible welfare schemes and documents. We hope to unlock approximately ₹2,00,00,000 in benefits to 10,000 beneficiaries through access to welfare schemes. In addition to this, we select ‘Haqdarshaks’ from within the community to help households apply for eligible private and government welfare schemes, earning a secondary salary for themselves, thus creating micro-entrepreneurs in the community simultaneously.
