To increase youth engagement in the policy making process, The Policy Troupe transcended the length and breadth of Almora, Uttarakhand, and was exposed to real people and problems through interrogations, observations and interactions.
LexQuest Foundation is an NGO working towards increasing youth engagement in the policy making process, and enabling citizen empowerment through grassroots level intervention, in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, specifically Goal 3 (Good Health and Well Being for People), Goal 4 (Quality Education), Goal 5 (Gender Equality), Goal 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions) and Goal 17 (Partnerships for the Goals). Through our work, we are continually bridging the knowledge and resource gap that handicaps our educational, social, economic, cultural and political landscape.
Increasing women’s social, economic and political inclusion by:
Facilitating the conversation space to promote sexual and reproductive rights.
Employing contextual pedagogy to reduce financial and social discrimination, to create sustainable communities.
Strengthening capacity building mechanisms for participation and inclusion leadership and decision making roles.
Leveraging citizen empowerment by:
Enabling public access to information and preservation of fundamental freedoms.
Ensuring grassroots level participation for inclusive, non-discriminatory and sustainable development policies.
