Formation of committee • A parent committee is being formed in the community. The committee sits once in a month to discuss the underlying problems and possible solutions of checking the slum children from child labour. • Discussions are also made on the issues of street children and what are the step scan be undertaken to check the vulnerability of the street children.

Efforts are being undertaken to mainstream the slum children into the formal education system.

CAPACITY BUILDING PROGRAMME FOR THE PRIS It is evident that Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) are the key stakeholders in the development process of the state as well as the country. They are placed in an important place which relates the community needs with the government development programmes. Due to lack of capacity of the PRI members and interest on the part of Government officials, PRI functionaries are not able to exercise their power to a great extent. This was the finding from the workshop on PRI, which was conducted in project locations of Keonhar and Nuapara District. The participants of the workshop were the PRI functionaries, community leader and Govt. officials who provided valuable opinions on effective functioning of Panchayats in the state. TRAINING AND CAPACITY BUILDING OF WOMEN In our recent modern society women find little or no space to assert their rights. Their situation is also more vulnerable in the context of globalization. They always fall back in realizing the ultimate outcome of every socio-economic development initiatives undertaken by different agencies. Apart from that there are number of taboos exists in the society which prevents them participate in every sphere of work and also they are not prioritized in compared to male counterparts. Looking into this background the organization has organized a mass community awareness programme on empowerment. The resource persons of the programme conveyed the message on the available entitlements for the women groups and how they can access those benefits without any sort of hurdles. Apart from this they were also oriented on the official procedure on getting those benefits. The outcome of the activity helped the women group to access the schemes implemented by different agencies. Already formed 52 Self-help groups were invited into different phases. They got trained on the book keeping mechanism and they also got the knowledge on the vocational training. There were also subjects covering the marking of the available local products. BRIDGE COURSE PROGRAMME FOR OUT-OF-SCHOOL CHILDREN With an objective to provide education to the out-of-school children, the organization has been assigned by the Govt of orissa to conduct bridge course programme in the slum areas of Bhubaneswar city. In this process, the targeted children are identified with the help of existing education committees of the slum. Thus, the organization has tried to bring the street children into limelight by providing them education, which will enhance their mental ability. At the same time awareness was created among the parents to create demand for education so that they can access basic rights of life. SOCIO-ECONOMIC SURVEY OF THE DISPLACED PERSONS The organization has undertaken a survey of the displaced persons in the nearby areas of the Dhamara port. The objective was to identify the project affected persons to get the compensation amount. The survey questions were prepared by the Dhamara Port Authority, which contained the socio-economic background of the families, their occupational status, land and other details of the target households. Thus based on this survey the authority of the Dhamara port is planning to provide identity cards for the project affected persons so that in future there will be no confusion in receiving compensation amount. CAMPAIGN ON ENVIRONMENT AWARENESS It was felt that environment protection would make the society towards sustainable development. Looking into this the organization has organized a environment awareness campaign with the school students of Bhubaneswar. Students participated in the rally organized by the organization. Leaflets were distributed to create a mass awareness among the general people. There was also a general meeting with the slum community where local resource persons delivered their views on the need for environment protection and how this will save our future generation in the context of growing industrialization. There were also representation of community level leaders, key persons such as teachers and other community members in the general meeting
