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 100 community-led organisations or fellows operating in 100 districts across the country will be created. This architecture has an instrumental role in facilitating and monitoring programmes, related to rights, entitlements, relief and recovery of the disadvantaged communities.

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
