Community Based Organizations
Community Based Organizations are widely heralded as leading contributors to poverty reduction and the achievement of food security. In its endeavor to create sustainable and viable projects, we have formed three apex bodies in Pratapgarh, Jaipur and Bundi.
We employ following strategy for formation & empowerment of Community Based Organizations (Peoples Organizations) …
We include community from the beginning of planning stage so that the sense of ownership can seep in and participation improves.
Linkages with Bank & Market
We develop market linkages of the POs so that the product they are creating can fetch fair price and credit is available at required time frame.
Identification of Leadership
We identify persons from within the community who have leadership qualities and are eager to learn management principles.
Formation of committees
Linkages of Committees with Government
We bring the committee members with government departments so that proper support and communication platform can be formed. This also helps in dispute resolution and faster execution of interventions.
Capacity building trainings of Committees
We conduct capacity building trainings for each committee so that they can learn the principles of inclusion, equity and management. These trainings include both classroom teaching (interactive) and exposure tours (field learning).
