SPARC Program: Constituency Development

Oct 2022

SPARC Program pioneers in delivering developmental solutions to Members of the Parliament to improve public service delivery in the most marginalised communities in India 

Swaniti Initiative works with the Parliamentarians in multiple ways for mapping the gaps of governance and find solutions to change lives. SPARC (Supporting Parliamentarians in Analysis and Research in Constituencies) is a one year program in which Swaniti Initiative places an associate with a Member of Parliament (MP) to execute on specific developmental projects that are pre-designed and will be monitored by Swaniti and through which SPARC associates are expected to create high impact. As an extension to the Swaniti’s core projects and ethos, the Associate will be expected to work on topics of Direct Benefit Transfer, minimising gender gaps, livelihood creation and strengthening social safety nets. The specifics of each project intervention and deliverables will be shared once Associates get selected and become part of Swaniti Team. Associates will be expected to aspire the achievement of the north star of the fellowship that is to ensure that the citizens experience strong service delivery and get empowered to increase their life chances.
