  •        Develop village level people's institutions popularly known as Village Development Committee   (VDC)at the village level in the process of community empowerment, with special focus on equal and adequate representation of vulnerable/disadvantaged sections such as women.
  •  Work consciously to develop the capabilities of these  ‘Village Development Committee         in analyzing their present situation and find feasible and viable alternatives, leading to their participation in the socio-economic processes which govern their lives.    Enable them to plan, implement, monitor and evaluate development program and effectively liaise with an external system, governmental and non – governmental.
