Mission & Vision



OUR VISION

Comprehensive Community Development

OUR MISSION

To enhance the socio-economic, educational, health, and infrastructural status of village and urban areas.




Our Programs

Women empowerment

Empowering women could lead to overall development of rural areas as women's contribution plays a vital role in improving families total income level. We empower them through the formation of Self-Help Groups at village-levels to reach women impoverished by social evils. We facilitate credit linkages through SHGs, and many women are encouraged to be entrepreneurs and be financially independent.

Education

We run an After-School Centre for children from government schools in rural areas. The purpose of this centre is to help children overcome their fear of speaking out their thoughts, and to improve their communication skills. We also have trained faculties to help them with their academics. Students are given life skills training, and encouraged to pursue higher education.

Farmers produce company

Farmers Produce Intelligent Group has been formed to improve their quality of life and get awareness about agriculture. We help them sell their products directly with intermediaries, increase their efficiency in bargaining in the market, and widen their knowledge about the value added practice. These steps ensure that farmers are well-informed about producing and selling their products.

Livelihood

As a part of livelihood promotion, we help people get credit linkages to buy cow, goats or other means to start their business. Through this approach, we have created employment opportunities for many people who were below poverty line. It has helped them in their financial stability and enhanced their socio-economic status.

De-addiction centre

Our de-addiction centre was started in July 10th, 2010, to help family members who are addicted to alcohol and became a hurdle in women's development. We provide counselling and necessary training to help people recover from addiction. So far, 200 people have recovered through our de-addiction centre.
