About

Jhatkaa provides a platform to citizens to initiate and run campaigns related to issues that widely affect the general public relating to the environm Read moreent, human rights, education, laws, and policies. The campaigns are based on the urgent needs of the masses which require immediate solution. Utilising the potential of aware citizens, Jhatkaa provides a solution to cultivate a positive change. It helps people collectively act on issues and spark a change that might not be possible single-handedly, in addition to holding corporate, cultural, and government leaders accountable. The goal of Jhatkaa is to provide a system of checks and balances, fight corruption, and hold people in power accountable. It aims to redefine democracy by placing power in the collective hands of people, by advocating solutions for addressing issues related to human rights, education, and clean water, food and air. Jhatkaa facilitates the growth of a movement by preparing in response to an anticipated crisis or working to precipitate an opportunity, leveraging pivotal moments to make a difference. When a moment has the potential to make an impact, Jhatkaa informs its members as quickly as possible through messages, interactive voice response, missed calls, email, social network, and websites. It spreads awareness about the opportunity and provides them with tools needed to impact the outcome of the situation. It also helps members involve other citizens, both online and offline, to help spread the campaign. Some of its previous successful campaigns have been: “Karnataka govt officials in talks with HSR Layout residents to clean up stink at KCDC plant’ “Panchayat promises to clear and fence illegal dumping ground in Bangalore” “Karnataka Governor blocks a bill that would reduce public open spaces” “Karnataka government cancels plans for the steel flyover”
