Bikalpa-an Alternative is a public policy think tank working as a watchdog at the state and municipal level to sensitize civil society members and pressure public office bearers to be accountable. As a legal entity registered in 2014, Bikalpa seeks to develop a culture that favors individual and economic freedom in spheres of personal lives and policy issues, and suggests policies that ultimately uplift the status of poor people. Bikalpa does this through empowering people with their research, education and civic engagement programs.
Hriti Foundation was established as a think tank to work on these very guiding values. Hriti Foundation advocates about the importance and prospect of liberal values in terms of delivering as per the aspiration of the people of Karnali. Hriti has set two distinct stakeholder groups as its major target segments – policy makers, and young students and leaders.
