World Water Day is a great time to be conscious of how much water we use every day, and recognize how fortunate we are to have it at our disposal. And, in turn, be conscious of how access to clean and safe water positively affects our lives, our economies, and our societies. The application of water and its managed use has been an essential factor in raising productivity of agriculture and ensuring predictability in outputs. Water is essential to bring forth the potential of the land and to enable improved varieties of both plants and animals to make full use of other yield-enhancing production factors. By raising productivity, sustainable water management (especially when combined with adequate soil husbandry) helps to ensure better production both for direct consumption and for commercial disposal, so enhancing the generation of necessary economic surpluses for uplifting rural economies. Community hygienic education helps people understand and develop hygienic practices to prevent disease and death in their community. Our organization has been working on these facts among under privileged children. These process activated by SPPD through various methodology we like to inform one of the way we proceed through the path of evening study centre. Community hygiene education and good hygiene are important tools in preventing infectious diseases from spreading throughout a community. Successful hygiene education will inspire real and lasting improvements to current hygiene practices and promote good attitudes towards community hygiene. Practicing good hygiene is also a behavioral change – one that everyone can make whether they are rich or poor, young or old, educated or not. We work for the empowerment of rural women through asset creation. It mainly depends on educating or communicating necessary information to them for the agricultural and allied activities.

We work among the poor women farmers by educating on financial management training that makes eligible for loans through Bank .As long we supported to fulfill their basic needs in daily life. As a farming women, if they compare their effort with profit it’s not up to the mark and acceptable because of intermediate person who trade their products. To overcome these difficulties we initiated the knowledge of Farmer Producer Company that breaks the system which is not much affordable and it introduces new method of trading, producers to consumers. It yields more profit and help the poor women farmers to create asset for sustainable life.


Staff capacity Building A very important capacity building exercise for SPPD staff members took place on 16th December 2017 in the SPPD field office at Musiri of Trichy district. Dr. Gayathri an eminent expert in women studies cum trainer imparted training to the staff members.

The individual staff members showed keen interest in knowing about the methods to be adopted in making the target communities to actively take part in the process of PRA. The requirement of collection of data in the process of evolution of a project was explained in detail by the trainer. In fact, it was an eye opener for most of our new staff members as collecting the primary data would reveal the ground level realities and the secondary data available with the official sources alone can not be blindly taken up for the purpose of our interventions. The staff learnt the utmost importance of the Situational Analysis and the concepts of Social Mapping in general and Resource Mapping, etc. The staff also were exposed to the different aspects of planning in executing the activities of any intervention. Fixing of responsibilities of different stake holders especially among the staff members was also learnt in depth by the staff members. Similarly, the new staff members got a clear understanding that the activities only have to be facilitated and the target communities have to directly involved in the same. Through Problem Tree graphical representation method, the participants were introduced to the concept of problem analysis, like direct causes and indirect causes. This gave them an insight in to There was full of individual practical involvement of the participants, as they were divided in to five different groups for Group Discussion. Under the heads of a) Education of socially and economically backward children b) Problems of Adolescent girls and boys c) The unemployed youth d) Problems of small and marginal farmers. D) Security for women. The staff enthusiastically involved in the G.D. Interesting points were raised by them in the Group Discussion. The trainer mainly played the role of facilitator to encourage the staff to have the maximum understanding of the topics given for the Group Discussion. As a whole the capacity building training gave a big opportunity to better themselves in the knowledge of working among the vulnerable sections of the rural and urban communities. The staff members said the training has given them enormous understanding and increased their level of confidence on Social interventions. They wish to have more such trainings to improve themselves.
