HOW WE WORK

Our partners range from small community support groups to national alliances and international networks seeking education for all, trade justice and action against HIV/AIDS.

Our work with these networks highlights the issues that affect poor people and influence the way governments and international institutions think.

We constantly seek new solutions and ask ourselves how we can make the greatest impact with our resources.

We have a unique vision and direction. We don't impose solutions, but work with communities over many years to strengthen their own efforts to throw off poverty.

We make the most of our skills and abilities by working at many levels - local, national, regional and international.

slide8
OUR STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES

Poor and excluded people are able to demand and realize their rights and entitlements

Women and girls are able to participate in social and political processes

slide9

Citizens and people’s organisations are strengthened and have the capacity to demand just, democratic, transparent and accountable governance

National and international institutions including IFIs and MNCs are accountable to

citizens

slide10

Poor people’s access to and control over basic rights ( land, education, health, shelter) is increased

Their livelihoods are protected especially in emergencies and disaster situations.

slide12

OUR ACHIEVEMENTS IN 2008

Around 25,000 people belonging to poor rural background, vulnerable fisher folk communities, peasants, sanitary workers, religious minority groups and youth were organised into over 550 groups

A large number of people were mobilised to raise governance issues.

slide13

Over 41, 600 children were facilitated to get education, 40% of whom were girls belonging to remote rural areas with traditionally conservative backgrounds.

Helped over 159,000 people to have access to health services by functionalizing government facilities and organising mobile medical camps, weekly clinics, and community health centres

slide14

Organised people living with HIV/AIDS to improve their access to care, support and treatment. These interventions particularly benefitted women, helping 106,640 to access basic services.

Supported 108,319 poor people (50 % women) to have access to safe drinking water and sanitation

slide15
Men were sensitised to issues related to women’s rights. 10,208 men participated in our women’s rights interventions.

People were mobilised on the issue of Peace and Harmony and facilitated to organise rallies, walks, seminars and dialogues to improve interfaith harmony and resist intolerance in the society.

slide16

LEARNINGS

CHALLENGES

To improve our work quality the capacities of staffs should be strengthened through regular training needs assessments.

Poor and excluded people must be kept at the centre of planning.

Country's security and political situation must be considered while planning our interventions

PPRP exercises are helpful in gaining trust and confidence of the poor communities.

Impact of our work can be enhanced by means of networking and alliance building with like minded organisations.

Shifting the staff and partners from fragmented interventions to strategic planning

Staff turnover

Implementation of RBA by partners

Country’s overall security environment

Capacity gaps of staffs and partners

Lack of baseline data to measure impact of our work
