Single-window agency to help marginalised communities

Centre for Advocacy Research (CFAR) will open ‘Sahaya,’ a single-window system in Vijayanagar, to help slum dwellers avail government schemes.

CFAR conducted a study in eight settlements in the city, with support from Azim Premji Foundation, to determine the extent of access that women in slums had to welfare schemes. The study concluded that many had not received their Aadhaar cards as a result of which their ration cards were cancelled.

Sahaya will benefit construction workers, domestic workers, garment workers and other marginalised communities to avail 23 schemes focusing on health issues. Assistance will be provided to apply for these schemes and avail benefits.
