Community Development and Strengthing of Federations


65-70% of the poor and marginalised sections of communities do not have access to higher education, health care and employment. Most of the rural and tribal families are steeped in cultural myths and misconceptions and therefore ignorant. The children in their families are usually the first generation learners.At the same time women are subjected to domestic and gender violence. This is also a serious issue and needs to be addressed alongside other social issues. Though the process has started it takes time and has to be further strengthened for sustainability and independence of the federation. Village youth and cadres have to be trained to efficiently articulate their concerns and needs to lobby with the local panchayat and state governments.

In conclusion community organization is being used as a strategy to organize and link different sectoral communities with government schemes and village infrastructural development.
