To realize a sustainable change in an under-served community where socio-economic issues are complex and interconnected, we employ an Integrated Community Development Approach.
Mitigating the immediate and urgent issues entails addressing issues of ill health, poor living conditions, inadequate skill-sets required for gainful employment, and lack of access to educational, medical and legal services.
The second methodology is about a transition from being people to becoming citizens. It seeks to enable people and their communities to develop a Community Based Management system to discover their own potential, learn their entitlements, respond to civic and social issues, and engage with government institutions to improve their lives.
In the long term, this dual approach would affect a qualitative improvement in (1) basic health infrastructure, (2) access to secondary education, and (3) opportunities for sustainable livelihood.
