Swaniti works to translate political will for developmental solutions into programs on the ground. Currently, elected officials lack the bandwidth for the ‘HOW’ to bring development solutions, yet they have the resources to make a tremendous mark, which often get misallocated or wasted.
Swaniti has pioneered two programs to address this:
a) ‘on the ground support’ of development experts who catalyze programs or
b) knowledge insights and training to elected officials for self directed programs.
Swaniti has worked with over seventy MPs and MLAs on its knowledge initiative and on the ground support. For further information about our engagements or knowledge support please click on the link.
