The program strategy that we set out to carry forward has several perceptions for the smooth working of our organization. It demands continuing efforts to develop and strengthen systems and procedures that reflect our mandate of community participation, transparency and accountability with the process of community empowerment. It is a matter of fact that faulty management of natural resources is the root cause of most of our development problems. We do believe that the existing practices of managing our natural resources must change towards a wider spectrum of community participation. A set of three objectives guides the organization effectiveness:

  • Assist local people to assert their right over local natural resources.

  • Assist local people to utilize traditional knowledge and techniques to manage and develop all local natural resources
