Panchayat of Tikabali Block, Kandhamal district experiences the acute situation relating to denial
of rights and entitlements, community food and nutrition security, health, communication,
education and human sufferings where whole of the panchayat people face since decades.
We have initiated process of empowering people and their organizations by orientation, IEC
material distribution, problem sharing and identifying related to different sector. This process has

SOCIO-ECONOMIC STATUS / ANALYSIS OF THE PROJECT AREA
Rights Of Child:
Poverty, illiteracy, lack of awareness and attitude has been the source cause of denial of right to
children. Gradually children becoming laborers (we have identified 578 children of the panchayat
who are working in different forms) migrate to urban areas of different parts of the district and state
as well for employment being deprived of education & family support, of whose girl children are
most vulnerable. At every sphere rights of child is violated what ever may be the form (restaurant
boy, NTFP collector, household work, care for siblings, animal herding, etc).
“ Every child out of school is a street and working child”- childright mean it.
Livelihood, Natural Resource, Agriculture practice & Women:
97% of the total families are Below Poverty Line. Most family have small sizes of land holding
which is not sufficient for sustenance depending on agriculture / farm based activities only. Hills
and forests surround the villages with rocky inaccessible tracks for which transportation of
agricultural means and produces has been a difficult task for the people since decades. Modern
agricultural tools and practice have not reached them, as their agricultural produces cannot be
transported so they are gradually not indulging in agricultural activities. The land holding pattern &
the frequency of drought in this rain fed district do not help feed families throughout the year.
Agricultural produces lasts hardly for 3 months depending on the production, which is very low.
The traditional forest and agricultural economy has been ruined. Most of the areas are not irrigated
though the under ground water table is well maintained. Due to lack of modern agricultural
technologies, communication and attitude, the overall productivity is at stake. Management of
natural resources is of great priority in these areas. The people have livelihood in unorganized
agriculture sector; selling forest produces (timber and non timber) and lives life of exile.
To whole of the agriculture economy women contributing every thing starting from seed collection
to next harvest neither she is recognized as a farmer nor exposed to modern and sustainable
farming. The pressure of food insecurity directly affects women and her intrinsic development.
Poverty, Hunger, & Women :
Our primary data shows that 23% - 27% households of every village do not cook in the night, it
does not mean they prepare dinner during daytime, they go bed without food, and they starve. In
such situation the nutritional and psychological status of women and children could well be
understood which has linkages to their survival and development. We astonish experiencing their
coping mechanism in all the seasons/ when asked about, they reply, “ sometimes we take “Torani”
(the water mix with cooked rice) and very often drink water and go bed”. There is no system at the
village level to address though they concern for such situation. Public Distribution System totally
fails in this area. It is very difficult, except 6 villages, to carry PDS rice after crossing a distance of
hilly and rocky hilltop road of 12-18 kms on an average. Even, people do not have the required
amount of money to purchase the PDS rice.
Credit Access & Exploitation by Moneylenders & Women:
Basically the poor people, particularly the women among them, are dependent on those who
exploit them. Because of dependence on the daily market regulated & controlled by the non-
adivasi people (middlemen) even on the daily wage work, which they cannot control. Most of the
poor families do not meet daily minimum needs and borrow money from the moneylenders who
charge high rates of interest. The Middlemen fix minimum fare wages and price for the agricultural
produce. This leads people to a situation in the state being poor and creating poverty and
hopelessness. People have not been able to access the formal banking system. Poor marketing
system, exploitative nature of the middle men, lack of transportation and communication, all limit
their bargaining power, leaving them with no profits out of the ventures.
The complex policies and procedures of Banks and other financial institutions discriminate against
the poor Adivasi women. In spite of submission of required papers, the poor Adivasi are excluded
to avail credit from these sources because they considered as noncredit worthy. Most of the time,
these people exploited by the middlemen and the corrupt officials at the time of availing credit, if
possible. But usually, the poor Adivasi helplessly returns to their home without avail credit from
Market and women:
People have to walk around 20 kilometers for their marketing and shopping. No transport means
is there and also scope for this is a far cry. Women spend nearly 8-10 hours to and fro walk,
loosing entire day’s opportunity cost, while going to weekly markets for selling their produces and
shop their daily rations and requirements, crossing the difficult rocky footmark ways inside the hill
bound forest areas. Mostly they are wounded hurt while crossing the rocky paths, which restrains
them, go for wage earning up to healing of such wounds on the foot and leg. It affects mostly
women performing household and outside job responsibilities attached to homes. There are tiny
shops in some villages that do not cater the need (as capital money is very low) of all the
households for which people are bound to visit weekly markets even for one or two items. For
almost all of the villages people walk 14-18 kms to catch a motor, which is not available for hours
Violence against Women:
We mean violence against women not only physical assault but by not providing them:
The opportunity to work / employment
Earn food for her family
Scope and platform to share feelings
The skill to manage and maintain livelihood
Opportunity to save and earn
Socio-political inclusion and recognition
Opportunity to educate on different social and economic matters
Recognition their work and domestic contribution
The opportunity to live as a married person with dignity after the death of her husband
(Making of widows).
School Education & Girl Children: Women in Literacy
Children do not attend school because:
No teacher comes to the school
Inadequate number of teachers
Absence of study environment (good school building, garden, wall charts, recreation
opportunity, quality and regular teaching, teaching and learning materials, school uniforms
and bags, health and sanitation measures
The distance of school from houses.
Parents cannot afford cost at out side school / boarding school.
No light system in schools and households. (Children suffer from vitamin A deficiency and
families cannot afford alternative source to provide light to studious children which results
poor performance and low enrollment into schools. Children loosing their study hours due
to absence of light. Families also cannot afford lanterns and high priced kerosene to their
children. The interest for study gradually lowering down)
Ashram hostel has no scope for girl child and sanitation arrangements. Malaria disease
frequently causes problem and hinder study of the inmates. Food supply is not up to
Local Self-Governance System & Women’s Voice:
People’s voice against the complacent attitude of the mainstream agencies related to many needs
and difficulties of the Panchayat may it be road and communication, health, education, livelihood,
basic rights, water, etc, since centuries, inculcated no meaning.
In this regard the role of people’s representatives is not seen. Their voices are not heard. They
are not included into all the planning process setting aside the actual need of their villages. The
representation of women into Pallisabha a Gramsabha is nil due to lack of political awareness.
Though women represent some seats they are used as stamps. Male dominancy often suppress
women legislative power and rights out rightly.
Though women’s participation into to PRI system is increasing but they are used as rubber stamp.
Their husbands take decision over all Panchayat matters including planning, monitoring and
budgeting for their constituency. Husband dominate everywhere acting as people’s ghost
representatives, it is a phenomenon. Handful of miscreants use these number of women and most
of the times the women members are neither contacted nor informed about many important
decisions related to village development activities, they always grieve over this.
Existing Health Infrastructure & Women’s Health:
Malaria, ARI, Diarrhea, cough, cold, and other killer diseases are prevailing here. Though there is
an infrastructure of health services in the area, no medical staff comes to this place. In the
emergency medical staff, come when they listen any disease broke out there. People have to go
by walking in all the seasons up to 20 km for a medicine and medical advice. Many deaths are
due to malaria, which is above 50%. People depend on the stream water for their drinking. Tube
well wells are defunct and not present. 27 villages suffer from acute water scarcity in the summer
and depend on hand dug CHUAs (smallest pond like dug water bodies) that contain foreign
substances, which affect the health and hygiene of the entire family at times.
Many time women deliver on the street while shifting to nearest (approximately 38 kms) health
care center. People have to walk in the hilly, rocky, hilltop reads for 13 kms to catch a vehicle,
which is not available for fours together. Thus people face serious problems while approaching
any short of health service. We are just present there for about 3 years, who knows how many
women would have given birth on the forest footpath, how many of them survived self and their
newborn babies since decades, centuries!!!
Many pregnant, lactating women, children suffer from malnutrition, as their staple food is only rice
and dal. People never cultivate vegetable even reach sourced of vitamins lie papaya and
drumstick leaves re not commonly seen in every household backyard.
One PHC has been constructed costing more than 7 lakhs, operated for few days and
closed later having all the required health facilities now stolen and damaged. The house
buildings are discarded now.
Since years, only in time of emergency one doctor sometimes visits the Bilabadi Panchayat
But once in a month (2nd Wednesday of every month) one mobile van visits with doctor and
nurse only at GP HQ by not attending the people of every villages/populace. It is quite
impossible for people to come to GP HQ in one day when they suffer from injury or other
No ANM or doctor is available there for 341 days.
ICDS service availability for the target groups is discouraging.
Village quacks attend complicated pregnancy cases and other ailments causing fatal
outcomes always, people depend upon them as no health facility reaches them.
In rainy season all the wells are affected by over pouring rainwater causing many diseases.
Natural Calamity :
The area experiences high incidence of drought, water flood, damage of field bonds and top soil
and siltation due to high speed rain water flow from the hills and forests resulting extra labour cost
to repair and prepare the cultivable land and other land and water properties. Last 2 years the
district faced drought, this year, and heavy rain causing damage to agricultural fields. Such
calamities further making more vulnerable to household economy.
Our Concept and understanding
Over Problems, Linkages, Problem Priorities
The entire analised problem in the previous pages centralises as under:
The geographic location of the gram Panchayat (being a boarder, interior, inaccessible
villages, having disadvantaged, uneducated tribe and Dalits community)
People have not been faced towards own market, block and district administration due to
roads and hill top location of their villages so that they could interface with different
People have not raised voice properly to make others heard.
The road and communication facility and lack of other amenities in the area discouraged
officials and traders to have a step into with product and services so that government
institutions failed to operate. This has also contributed to the health, education, agriculture
and animal husbandry sector, though there is ample scope for this.
Dependency on the outside market and district has made them more marginal and
Women and children have been the silent observer and bearer of all the situations analised
earlier. These groups never voiced against the injustice and in favor of their inherited rights
Owing to the geographical and the economic situation of the Panchayat the children could
hardly getting scope for higher education
All the sectors and problems are interlinked. It is of just need to address all the problems but there
is less opportunity to have a support for all at a time for us. All the vital sectors like livelihood,
micro credit, education, health need equal attention and approach to address but such need
placement need a huge amount of investment, which is not explored at times. We do not generate
this need but the people of the projected area have shared and planned out of their knowledge
and practice. Especially Health, Livelihood and Education are more interlinked.
SLAJUS has prioritized the problems for this project to address as under:
Women, PRI members & community stakeholders’ empowerment
Livelihood generation and Poverty Alleviation
Education for children
Basic Health for community
We believe the integration of these four could address some of the major problems interlinked and
contribute to direct poverty alleviation through direct benefit to the targeted partner community and
other related problems will be adhered in the process of addressing these four.

How People Benefiting from the Project:
Empowering people, people’s representatives and their organisations will further improve the
condition of civic life standard to articulate more upon community interest and development with
enhanced leadership qualities. Information base related to their rights and entitlements will
strengthen community for a better interface and bargain with mainstream support structure and
goods and services available for them for social and economic security.
Women empowerment could be possible through the intervention of this project. It will help to tribal
women in increasing their household disposable income and also serves as an entry point for
broader social, political and financial empowerment of women.
The target population benefiting immediately, excelling in one common platform of SHGs, from the
project will be the direct participants, that is 2000 women of 100 SHGs who will be in a credit
circulation among them at very low rate of interest. Micro enterprise support will result in
enhancing the family economy, purchasing power through supplementary and subsidiary income
of their respective families. This will drastically reduce the debt-trap created by them. The entire
community will benefit, as this will become a forum for not just the women members but also the
community at large. In time, 100% coverage is expected to involve every household in the
The farm and non-farm activities will further employ resources enhancing productivity and
management of natural resources ensuring food security.
The job, employment and livelihood generation program will support household food security
measures, which will further enable the entire family to act upon for community development. The
development of children and care for the senior citizens will be possible when there will be some
short of regular income of the families. Food for Work Program will provide daily job to 50% of BPL
The school program will benefit around 600 children to continue education process and 25
persons from the community who will teach them getting an additional income to their monthly
budget. The solar light system at SHG meeting places and education centers will help provide
good effects on their eye and further help the SHGs to run some economic activities in the
premises in the night by providing more productive hours in the night.
The health program will benefit primarily the women (pregnant women), children under five, senior
citizen, adolescent and community at large. This will result in family health and hygiene, family
planning and reproductive services. The nutrition and health standard will up through health
support program. The mobile dispensary will help the community in emergencies and reaching
with health services at community level.

MONITORING AND EVALUATION PLAN
Plans for formal review & evaluation are inbuilt in the project. A mid term evaluation & final
evaluation are planned for the program where the project team, project partners and external
evaluator will review program impact with activities, strategy & process achieved. Program
achievement will be measured participatory in term of the indicated output & goals. The project
level Project Monitoring Committee (PMC) will be accountable for project plan and goal oriented
The organisation will prepare a financial guideline basis on the fund requisition and transfer the
money. All kind of financial records shall be maintained by the organisation. The material shall be
purchased in the project level and a purchase committee shall be formed for taking decision on
requirements and purchase etc. The acknowledgement of materials received shall be kept in the
The project staff on its periodic progress, which will also provide a base for evaluation. Evaluation
of program will be done to compare the intended activities with real operation, which will provide
useful feedback in the future planning. Monitoring and evaluation on progress and impact
respectively will be done at several stages as mentioned below:
* During the monthly staff meeting
* In the SHG/Federation meeting at village level conducted at the regular intervals
* During the various training program
There will be two types of formal evaluation. One measures the product; the other analyzes the
A participatory evaluation shall be done at the end of project duration by representatives of SHGs
project partners and an external consultant will carry out the process.
The project shall inbuilt a 3 tier monitoring and evaluation process to be executed by the
community, the staffs and by external experts. A monitoring system has to be developed involving
all actors, which is to be provided to all the 3 levels for implementation. In all levels the systems
has to be carried out and the synthesis shall be done at central level. The social audit process
shall be initiated as a part of monitoring system.
Internal and Statutory auditor shall do the financial monitoring. Against the auditors report, action
taken report should be furnished and required changes should be made as per the suggestions.
The Project Coordinator and the Accountant shall be a part of the financial monitoring system
along with all the staff. Annual financial stocktaking and program evaluation shall be done.
All the program activities will be / is designed in a strategic way so that every sectors of main
activity will leave a compatible fund at the community/stake holder’s disposal to continue their
(community is our first partner) development movement even if no outside agency presents there.
We have planed our level best to give the project a perspective where people inculcate,
experience, share and replicably apply their development understanding for a sustainable
breakthrough within the framework of the project formulation. Who knows with this state of (as
mentioned in the problem analysis) capability and the proposed frame of empowerment, how long
they will be maintaining the spirit (who have been experiencing a denial of every human and basic
rights since decades ??. We hope people will definitely participate with this process of
development, creating their own source of financing to meet every cost, as this project offers a
beginning of every possibility to start with opportunities, by themselves after the project is finished.
The project will not leave them in the midst of reversing back foot; at least, they would have been
empowered enough (socially and economically) to reach the forms of their security.
People will be requiring assistance, after the project is finished, on some areas as under:
Explore different avenue of employment and livelihood opportunity (farm and non farm)
A minimum reach to Medicare, mainstream facilities & entitlements.
Ensure Rights of Child.
The project shall initiate a process by which the members would able to avail the opportunity or
development process and would come closer to the mainstream of life, so that the members would
feel that they are the part of the process they will run of on their own. It will help them in
understanding as well as managing the process, which can be sustained by them through their
collective group action. The project shall mobilise the other resources and shall play a
complementary and supplementary role. The project shall mostly take up the Government
developmental program. However, in consideration of the merit and urgency of cases, the project
will take up certain basic need activities.
The Self Help group (SHG) members have a commitment towards regular savings and adopt
appropriate rules pertaining to savings, credit, service charge, loan term, loan use, etc.
Democratically elected leaders play a key role in mobilizing members and establishing a self-
reliant system for economic improvement. Linkages of the groups with financial institutions will
surely help getting loan in times of need.
Panchayat level SHG federations will play a vital role in social change and keep all the groups
Depending on the process and level of success and need of the community we will further request
project partner for extension of support or linkage with other support agencies for further synergy.
Plan of Implementation
The project shall be implemented in a participatory process; the target group would be given top
most priority in each level i.e. planning, monitoring, executing and assessing the impact. The
information will be collected and processed both by the community people and the staffs. Project
will facilitate the process of development intervention with the active participation of the people and
provide space for the community to get involved to carry out the project in right direction.

taker community presence
The situation of the project area and its people cannot be pictured in words. The life and lifestyle;
women and children’ nutrition level; road communication, health and education status; poverty,
hunger and Marginalisation process; control over resources and marketing; reach to basic
services; people’s voice against injustice; access to rights and entitlements and the “…n” number
– find no place to mark its importance to start with. The decades long denial of services and rights
of the people has been made seasoned.
These can only be felt only if shared with the community being with them.
We want to see a socio-economic transformation of target women, which is further linked with
sustained education and health status. It is important because only poverty alleviation could
contribute the community to the complexities of hunger but the related areas, which affect the
process, are equally important to be dealt with. The project emphasizes mainly on direct poverty
alleviation. During the project period, it may not be possible, to establish a progressive economic
empowered state but the process initiated in between will certainly have a synergetic move
towards the attainment of the goal of the project.
For this the project will certainly require extension and we will appeal you to support after
monitoring our project need, expertise and professionalism.
The present status of our organisation is that we have a development understanding, conviction,
dedication and professionalism. We are working hard in the area with out any sustained support;
our workers are reaching every populace(entire 50 village/populaces) by walking in the hilly and
inaccessible rocky hill tracks. We very often do not meet very vital expenses as we rely on
invitation of other agencies for consultancy and training. We are really facing problem and it is
high time to restore our commitment and conviction and dedication to work with the people who
every time asks us when to start with programs (here programs mean – poverty alleviation and
We have been struggling since decade, and in a turning point, to have a professional support from
agencies like you but still struggling. Our rapport with community and their expectation from us as
an eye opener need some short of tangible support when they will rely and further cooperate and
participate in all of their transformation process.
Here we have this opportunity to appeal you to consider our request so that we could
jointly reach people with possibilities and opportunities.
