Citizen Led Impact Features

Recruitment of members from targeted communities, particularly those directly affected by prevailing issues.

Community members undergo a comprehensive training to become community-based researchers and policy designers. The emphasis is on amplifying the voices of marginalized groups who are often overlooked.

The training is certified, and the credentials can be used, by community members, as stepping stone for career development. 

The structure of the engagement creates a long-term and sustainable relationship between policymakers and community members and provide real-life and consistent feedback loop to the needs evolution of communities.

The Citizen-led Impact model trains and supports local researchers to study livelihood factors in their neighborhoods. We aim to understand how economic, housing, municipal services, environmental, and social factors affect prosperity and well-being. Our goal is to use this research to shape policies, planning, and investments for better quality of life and opportunities in communities.
