Rural Development

Good Rural Governance provides individual citizens and the leaders of village-level institutions with knowledge, skills, and confidence to become informed active self-advocates for the development of their communities.

The evolved consequences of the programmes were also identified in relation to the major components of the programme and were measured by developing Perceived Consequence Index. The beneficiary respondents were asked to rate the components from their experience or on the basis of the benefits either as positive or negative.

In order to achieve its vision, OPEN has formulated a three-pronged strategy that contains the following components :

* Capacity Building among st Rural Population
* Rural Infrastructure Improvement
* Other initiatives, such as addressing the HIV / AIDS issue etc.

These three broad programmes are not in any way an exhaustive list of all OPEN’s activities. There is much more that we do that we simply cannot mention in the limited space available in this brochure.
