How does COLLECT work?
The aim of the COLLECT initiative is to facilitate strengthening of a ground level social accountability system. While strengthening the same, the architecture with a base of at least 80 community-led organisations or fellows operating in 90 districts across the country has been created. This architecture has an instrumental role in facilitating and monitoring programmes, related to rights, entitlements, relief and recovery of the disadvantaged communities.
Community-led Action Research Model
Identification of community-led organisations or fellows who function at the district level as coordinators
These coordinators collect data telephonically from key informants using an online data collection software that can be accessed via a smart phone or device
The data and report cards are further used for reflection and advocacy by the community, where each collaborator takes actions based on their need, capacity and resources
The finalised data is uploaded onto the website where it can be filtered by the viewer
The data sheet for each hamlet is reviewed, cleaned and mapped against a three-colour coding report card template
The report cards are analysed and shared back with the fellows and informants for review and finalisation
