PRADAN had a vision about a strong CBO which directly concentrate single-mindedly on the problems and development of poor and the marginalized section of the society of their own area. This dream actually surfaced on land and Mahila Vikas Mandal Palkot carved out as a successful alternative option for implementing the developmental works and creating a bridge between the community and different stakeholders like a government department, officials, bank, a different organization like PRADAN itself, etc.


MVM Palkot almost went in a saturation approach that touched almost every family of the existing villages. The federation decided to cover 73 villages in Palkot Block so that everybody can avail the facilities and power of being an SHG member and now 934 SHGs and 69 VOs have taken membership of MVM Palkot till 2018.


MVM Palkot adopted various ways to make women understand the importance of SHG and took them into SHG fold. On the one hand where our old SHG members and Mahila Mandal Majbutikaran Samiti of VOs were helping in identifying the left out women of their existing villages and also motivating them to form the SHG, meanwhile our federation leaders and community resource persons were organizing different types of events like Cluster Mela, Nukkad Natak, SHG Rallies to spread the awareness regarding SHG among the members of new villages.  This really helped our SHG trainers to make the SHG effective and smooth. This effectiveness and success appeared in our Mahadhiveshan organized by our federation had more than 2000 members took part. 


MVM Palkot also formed 69 VOs to monitor SHGs and also to create an environment and platform where SHG members can raise their voice and find or create a solution for their problems. Federation cut a dash in different sphere of development through VOs. Even one of our VOd Alankera Gram Sangathan, Matimtoli won n award for best VO in Gumla district on the occasion of women’s day by honorable Chief Minister Mr. Raghuvar Das.


The team members having the engagement broadly around the social mobilization in a saturation approach, gender, education, institution building, health and nutrition, rights and entitlement, PRI-CBO relationship and intensive livelihood activity like agriculture, horticulture, goat rearing, poultry etc. with the direct engagement in SHG, VO, aiming to strengthen these tires of institutions and enhancing the agency. Professionals reflect the engagement approach and share their learning’s and help each other to make better strategies for any kind of interventions in the team and also discuss the success and failure with teammates through regular team meeting.
