Samata Adhikar Abhiyan is an initiative of Samata Center that works towards ensuring the rights and welfare of marginalized and vulnerable communities. The organization's primary focus is on creating access to justice, information, services, and effective implementation of social benefit schemes for students, migrant laborers and training young people as active citizens committed to the cause of strengthening democracy.
Samata Adhikar Abhiyan employs a targeted approach that uses training young people and community leaders as Samata Adhikar Fellows, using paralegal training, communication and media advocacy; and technology to deliver services to local communities, enabling them to take ownership of their problems and work towards solutions.
The organization's work includes research, advocacy, and skill development programs, all aimed at empowering communities and creating a positive impact at the grassroots level. Through its various initiatives, Samata Adhikar Abhiyan has been able to create a platform for youth problem solvers and instil values of innovation and entrepreneurship amongst them. Overall, Samata Adhikar Abhiyan's work is focused on building a just and equitable society that upholds the rights and dignity of all its citizens.
Samata Adhikar Abhiyan trains young people and community leaders by providing paralegal training and developing their capacities and skills in the implementation of public policies - we call them as Samata Adhikar Fellow (Rights Associate), who serve as community resource persons, disseminating information and assisting the poor in applying for the appropriate Government Scheme. Samata Adhikar Fellow are passionate, well-informed individuals who want to make a positive impact in their communities, and we work with activist, youth-led organisations to ensure that these dynamic grassroots leaders are engaged in meaningful ways.
Samata Adhikar Fellows work to provide access to information and effective implementation of social benefit schemes for students. By collaborating with social leaders and conducting in-depth research, the program aims to diagnose key issues and problems faced by vulnerable students in India. The ultimate goal of the Samata Adhikar Abhiyan is to enable 10,000 vulnerable students and people in local communities gain access to legislated education and social security schemes that will help them lead a more secure life.
