Ensuring NFSA for Everyone through Social Audits
The social audit process was designed to increase knowledge of and demand for entitlements to food and nutrition services covered under the National Food Security Act (NFSA). This Act incorporates a range of child development and school feeding programs, maternity care and benefits, and subsidised food distribution targeting food insecure households. There is a lack of implementation of social audits by the government.
Vikas Samvad is ensuring the quality of social audits with community participation, right discussion and information access in 6 districts with the support of TDH-Terre Des Hommes. The plan is to ensure multiple social audits in almost 140 villages of 6 districts in Madhya Pradesh and Bihar in 5 years.
