Lok Manch
Lok-Manch

LokManch (People’s Forum) is envisioned as a movement of and by the dalits, adivasis, women, minorities, urban poor and other marginalized communities. About 100 organizations from 12 states have formed ‘LokManch’ together with likeminded partners, to strengthen the dignity and expand the rights of the priority communities, by capacitating them to become informed citizens, using access to entitlements as a tool.

The focus is on accessing entitlements enumerated in the National Food Security Act (NFSA), educational scholarships by the students of dalit and tribal communities through the Scheduled Caste Sub Plan (SCSP) and the Tribal Sub Plan (TSP), household and community schemes available under Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and other State and Central government welfare schemes. About 2,70,000 households are reached out to, through a mass awareness campaign and training of select representatives from local communities. These trained persons will serve as leaders and monitors voluntarily in each village, facilitating access to household and community entitlements. The process will be led by community leaders, 50 per cent of these being women.
