Evaluation with IL&FS

    Hand in Hand India’s Monitoring & Evaluation team conducted a study around the villages in Parangipettai Block in Tamil Nadu, an area in which the power plant is regulated by IL&FS. IL&FS has been continuously working with the communities to provide employment opportunities and improve the standard of living through focused interventions, especially infrastructure improvement and skill training. To increase their community outreach, Hand in Hand India conducted household surveys and group discussions to assess the need of the local populace and suggest additional interventions.

   With several interesting anecdotes from the community members, the analysis of the data proves to be robust, with a potential to introduce several interventions that will touch many lives.
