Strengthening the People Democracy through Advocacy
It’s the tradition in India, that the every village has a forum of gram panchayat which will discuss and take decision about different aspects in the villages. The past of the GramPanchayat institutions in India goes back hundreds of years. But, after independence, the Panchayat system was not properly implemented and it was neglected.
SAND Trust realized that these institutions need to be vibrant and responsive to the needs of the people to bring about lasting progress, benefiting all. Thus, SAND Trust launched the programmed, of ‘Strengthening the People Democracy through Advocacy’, to promote and strengthen the informal functional groups in the village to get involved in the Panchayat raj institutions and itsassociations. The programme mainstreams the existing traditional systems with the Panchayats Raj institutions to increase the participation of the community.
