Adhikar – Vani is a digital solution of Oxfam India with the objective of inclusion of excluded beneficiaries from the Government’s humanitarian relief and welfare programs resulting in improvised coping capacity. The digital tools are lead by local actors including CSOs and government line departments to safely provide the most marginalised communities with referral linkages to the Govt relief and social protection schemes, Public Health Promotion to minimize risks of community transmission and early warning dissemination. The cost-effective product has acted as a catalyst with a unified response from science volunteers, local NGOs, PRI members, District administration and State Offices in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

With over 6lakhs audio modules disseminated, a brief evaluation concluded — 344 families in Uttar Pradesh mobilised INR 11,66,482 from five government schemes within a span of 3 months. Furthermore, the portal enabled Senior Government Officials and Government Line Departments to engage with the community to its full extent.
