Our Initiatives

Advancing democratic practice and building citizens' power to reclaim the state.

We focus on in-depth research, providing critical analysis on key democratic and governance issues, crafting practical solutions, training and empowering citizens to lead change in their community.

How we work

Data-Driven Approach

Our advocacy campaigns are informed by credible research and data, as it is essential for effective, evidence-based advocacy.


We build the capacity of communities to undertake advocacy campaigns, carry out community projects and engage democratic institutions, thus giving them the power to reclaim the state.

Focused Support

We provide support to young candidates and change-makers to run effective, issues-based campaigns that will inspire voters and communities to action.
