DEVELOPMENT FORUM Major Activities and Achivements

DEVELOPMENT FORUM until now adhered to the principles of raising resources by participatory funding means. Not using the raised funds for non-productive spheres of the activity. Not availing huge scale funds from any donors. We state that our principles have now changed to be in tune to the present vision of DEVELOPMENT FORUM. We are not sorry for having taken a long time to learn the lessons, for, inspite of the restrained approach we adopted DEVELOPMENT FORUM has conducted 18 Health related activities,13 Old-age management activities, 4 Skill enhancement programmes, 4 Watershed development programmes, 3 Cultural awareness programmes,2 Forest awareness programmes,1 Education related programme, 1 Animal welfare programme. In tune to our principles, we had to generate resources and funds from a small pocket and defined area of operation. Within this limited scope of finance and resourcing we have been able to mobilize resources worth 20 lakh rupees and use 95% of this on productive spheres of activity. In tune to our principle of not using the raised funds on non-productive spheres of activities, DEVELOPMENT FORUM avoided having any administrative or field staff on their pay rolls. Instead the DEVELOPMENT FORUM members volunteered to engage themselves for about 400 days to survey the afflicted areas,650 days to organize the activities, 125 days to publicise the schemes,550 days to implementing the schemes, 200 days to follow-up,150 days to administer and document. All the members of DEVELOPMENT FORUM are gainfully employed for their living needs. And giving more than 60% of their leisure time for such a long period to social development activities displays the sustained commitment for the cause. Though we do not consider this an achievement, we do not either consider it as a mean attainment.
