UDAYALIPATTI – TO RISE AND SHINE
We love the time we spend at the computer centre."
Our two-year Village Uplift Programme is designed to create and build self-reliant communities that bring about an integrated development in villages. Rural development programmes have often failed when local stakeholders are excluded from the developmental process. We partner with local stakeholders, including the Panchayat heads, villagers and other government and non-governmental organisations in implementing development initiatives in the areas of job creation, education, health, environment, and IT and governance. A community-based approach is a social imperative to achieve success and sustainability through the VUP. Towards ensuring active community participation, we facilitate the forming of a Village Development Committee which consists of 15-20 volunteers representing a cross-section of the community who work towards the successful implementation and sustainability of the Programme interventions.
