The area has been chosen to work because of poor health and sanitation facilities,
literacy is very much low, no proper transport and communication facilities
available. IMR is more than 90 and MMR is around 360, which is high than national
data. We have start working on women and child health, women rights and
livelihood. After our working experience and need of local area we start working on
conservation related issues and trying to integrate livelihood and conservations. In
past 10 years organization has been worked with different organization i.e. CARE,
DFID, UNDP, SDTT on various issues. In 2005 the executive committee of the
organization decided and prioritized issues of working in the area. As per decision
of executive committee organization will work on the issue of Livelihood,
Governance, Health and NRM. These are core area of work for the organization, for
