Empowering the poor by creating self-sustaining people's organizations
  • ASSIST's core ideology was built around the approach of building self-sustaining societies and to act only as a facilitator. It is crucial to form internal support and strengthen development processes independently to ensure overall sustainability of villages without any external help eventually.
  • Programs of ASSIST: 1) Awareness Generation for overall development of village communities. 2) Capacity Building that includes formation of Village Development Societies, Women Self Help Groups and Mutually Aided Co-operative Thrift & Credit Societies trains them in community based monitoring systems, leadership activities and entrepreneurship development. 3) Women Empowerment through skill based training for financial independence of women. 4) Educational services for Child Development. 5) Health care facilities for the community. 6) Secured shelter, basic sanitation and water provision. 7) Economic activities to manage and increase income generation. 8) Emergency response for instant aid and recovery measures.
  • So far 306,589 beneficiaries across 232 villages have been reached out to through ASSIST.
