Hakku Initiative

Mana Hakku Mana Hyderabad, Mana Hakku Mana Telangana

  • Hakku Initiative is India’s first campaign-based online platform that works on solutions with citizens and governments. The objective of the Initiative is to explore pathways for reforms in social, economic and political spheres. Modern democracies must be realigned with people. This is especially important as the weak are getting weaker and the poor getting poorer despite representation, and electoral justice promised by democracies.

  • Hakku Initiative is part of the Institute of Perception Studies, a New Delhi-based research institute that has worked in rural and urban distress, and reforms.
