Community Development

SKU: 9865 Category: Product ID: 357

Description

“Following independence, India created a strong centralized federal government. However, over three quarters of the Indian population continue to live in rural villages and slums in cities – all diverse communities separated by geography, religion, and language. The large, bureaucratic federal government struggled to coordinate and manage these communities, creating a huge gap between the state and its citizens. This has led to problems with the quality of such things as healthcare, schooling, and labour rights in many rural communities.”

Objectives of Community Development normally include:
1. Teaching individuals who live in communities like villages or slums to become self-reliant economically.
2. Help in planning development activities based on requirements in each community
3. Providing facilities for education and employment such as schools, vocational training centres, job placements etc.
4. Improving the standard of living by making provisions for health care, awareness about transmittable diseases, basic hygiene etc
