Pune, January 14, 2021: Haqdarshak Empowerment Solutions Private Limited (HESPL), organized an insightful webinar on ‘Social security and welfare during a pandemic’, on 11th January 2021, as part of its 5-year anniversary celebration series. The webinar brought out how multiple government schemes beneficial for marginalized communities are not utilized due to lack of documentation, awareness, and institutional structure. It also highlighted how various facets of social welfare from education to healthcare are interlinked with poverty alleviation—the major problem which schemes aim to solve.
HESPL has an assisted-tech model, where a community field support agent— known as a Haqdarshak—uses its tech platform [via a smartphone] to discover eligible welfare schemes and documents for community members and then proceeds to provide the end-to-end application support with an objective of unlocking benefits.
