Short Description:

Overall goal

The Development Partnership consists of the three components: (i) income generating measures (e.g. watershed management), (ii) health and (iii) education. All measures are implemented as a pro-poor regional development approach in Ranchi district. The strategy is to organize the inhabitants into various community based organizations (CBOs), build their capacity and provide relevant infrastructures/assets for sustainable development. That includes intervention in Health, Hygiene & Sanitation (with special reference to reproductive & child health, especially child birth treatment of mother & child), quality primary education for all in the age group of 6 to 14. To avoid drudgery and health hazards of women due to the collection of fuelwood for cooking smokeless stoves and biogas plants have to be promoted in these model villages. Drinking water schemes will be promoted for safe drinking water. Furthermore it is planned to increase the quantity of irrigated land with watershed management measures. Hence, the main steps to implement these measures can be summarized as follows:

Formation of village development committees, Training and implementation of modern agricultural pratices, Farm and non farm based micro enterprises, Training technical skill/voccational education issues on trading/market issues, Formation of village health committees, Selection of 15 local level, Key Health Workers and their training in Improved public Reproductive & Child healthcare & Hygiene & Awareness on Public health & hygiene, Low cost toilets and drinking water schemes, Fuel efficient smokeless burner for cooking, Availability of water from the nearby Subarnarekha river / rain water harvesting, Strengthening of village education committees, Support of schools with learning helps, Teacher's training
