People's Institute of Rural Development (PIRD) was established to initiate a process of comprehensive development of rural people, especially the poor, marginalized and landless. The outreach of the organization has spread in 6 talukas of Latur, Osmanabad and Parbhani districts, having direct contact and intervention activities. Mobilization and organization of deprived sections in society, particularly women, children, agricultural labourers, has remained PIRDs core strategy to address their issues and uphold their rights.

Their activities include:

  •  Education: PIRD runs non-formal education centres to give educational inputs to working children, and re-enrol them in schools as far as possible. The current programme under this placard is ‘Eradication of Child Labour’ which has been implemented in several villages in Latur district. The fundamental of ‘Right to Education’ is propagated in targeted villages during Gram Sabhas, meetings, cultural festivals, religious & cultural festivals, and fairs. The message of child labour eradication has led over 5,000 child labourers enrolling in the study centres. More than 1,000 dropouts have re-enrolled for formal education. Exposure visits to other towns are organised for the benefit of the students. In FY15, nearly 42% of the Total Expenditure was spent on the Exposure Visit Programme to Panlot, Maharashtra.
  • Women Empowerment: PIRD encourages women to form Self-Help Groups (SHGs), thereby enabling them to get small loans for domestic needs and also supplement other income-generating activities. Agricultural and cluster level training, trainings in organic farming, soil conservation, compost farming, and many more areas are organised for the SHG members to encourage them to experiment new techniques in their farms for better produce and change to growing cash crops for earning more profit.
  • Agriculture: PIRD works intensely with landless labourers and small landowners for issues related to their employment and wages, legal protection, seasonal availability of agricultural work, and migration of farmers to nearby cities. To demand employment and ensure livelihood security, PIRD implemented a Watershed Development Programme through which thousands of small farmers benefitted, abandoned wells were renovated, new wells were constructed, and more land was covered under irrigational facilities.
