Examples of Our Work with State Administration

Governance Support in Raipur

The Government of Chhattisgarh has been working towards integrating quality solutions built on sound empirical evidence to public service delivery in the state. To this end, the government has partnered with the Swaniti Initiative in order to recruit competent individuals who are capable and driven to produce the desirable results. 42 young and dynamic individuals have been recruited as the Chief Minister’s Good Governance Fellows (CMGGF) for a period of two years and their services have been distributed across the 27 districts and 12 state departments, apart from two placed at the Honourable CM’s office and one in the Chief Secretary’s office. Over their tenure, the CMGG Fellows will strive towards delivering good governance solutions, which mainly focus on impact assessment and citizen reactions. 

SHG Formation in Haryana

Swaniti Initiative has been mandated by the Government of Haryana as a Resource Organization to facilitate the formation of SHGs under the Social Mobilization & Institution Development (SMID) component of the National Urban Livelihood Mission. The objective of this engagement is to provide sustainable economic options for the target beneficiaries. The project involves building institutions of women (and handicapped men) Self-Help Groups from urban BPL households of Haryana, alongside leveraging credit from banking institutions. The said engagement will focus on ensuring inclusive development and creating an empowering environment for poor and vulnerable households through community institutions and will provide them with access to finance thereby enabling them in practicing sustainable livelihoods. 

The LEAD Program

The LEAD Program aims to strengthen the governance systems by working directly with district administrators on flagship programs through the presence of on-ground Associates. The program allows young professionals a chance to strategise and implement key development activities in a district. The Associates work directly with a District Collector, attaining valuable guidance and mentorship. The Associates are provided knowledge support and supervision by Swaniti Initiative. Learn More
