Four Pillar Of The Organisation :

  • Gender equity: Men and Women are equal in status, but are identical. They are the peerless pair being complementary to one another; each helps the other so that without one, the existence of the other cannot be conceived. Therefore due considerations are to be given to the men and women in any existence.
  • People’s Participation: At all stages of development process involvement of target people has to be ensured. The people would have performed even most of the action program with their own resources by applying indigenous technology to the extent possible.
  • Bio-diversity and Environment: Human behaviour is being changed due to imbalance in eco-system and socio-economic inequalities as prevailing today in the society. Land, water, forest & environment degradation is posing serious threat to the livelihood of the poor people. Fragile ecological balance is well evident in areas dominantly inhabitant by tribal that are supposed to live more with the nature. Keeping in view of this unfavorable development, all the production system has to be eco-friendly and no way should the biodiversity be further disturbed.
  • Value Base culture: The moral improvement and social development are being considered to create value based society, where people will at least perform their responsibilities and aware of their rights as well.
