The project focuses on the formation and strengthening of Self-Help Groups (SHGs) and further collectivization under Village Organizations (VOs). SHGs are seen as assistance groups in which individuals, through collective savings, aim to improve their own incomes and lives. Members of SHGs, typically from similar socio-economic backgrounds and living in the same area, engage in community action by collectively meeting social and financial demands.
LBCT also dovetailed its intervention of working with SHGs and mounted it on the government’s programme of National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM). Through the formation of 348 SHGs, we have reached out to 4274 women across 4 states.
Availability of natural resources such as land, water, energy, flora-fauna also defines the quality of life of a community. Natural resource management is, therefore, the key to sustainable communities. Over the past few years, LBCT has created demonstration sites showcasing efficient use of natural resources. Pond revival projects at Laccharas and Dholar in Gujarat, Lake rejuvenation at Devli and development of Green Panchayat buildings in Jaipur are few amongst the demonstration sites.
The Build Back Better Programme is aimed at creating resilient communities. A follow-up to our covid-19 response initiatives (which focused response and relief measures), the programme focuses on the following areas of work:
