The organization believes strongly in participatory methodology and ensures that both within the organization and also with the community. The organization’s culture focus is on transparency and democratic work atmosphere. This culture enabled the organization to acquire a recognition and credible reputation for its commitment, work and the team. In the initial period the organization entered step by step into one to areas, however, we faced initial teething trouble of understanding the needs of local people, setting up an organization, engaging dedicated and committed people into our team.
