Human & Institutional Development-HID

Sukaar Foundation gives highest priority to build people’s capacities and envisages to engage local communities in all decision-making and collective implementation of community level initiatives. In order to contribute effectively towards SF’s vision and mission, it is imperative to engage local communities holistically in their own development and build their capacities for self-reliance. SF works with partners and donors to build the managerial and organizational capabilities of local communities. Through trainings, exposure visits and technical inputs the communities are empowered to manage their own resources and explore possibilities for sustaining community driven projects. Sukaar Foundation is fostering community organizations network at grassroots level. Local communities are democratically federated into Village Development Organizations (VDOs), who further impart various community level interventions devised with social and technical assistance of SF field team. Currently, 4,522 male members and 2,261 women members are taking part in shared vision of SF and local communities through 323 VDOs. These communities are further trained and engaged for identifications of problems, resources mobilization, designing and implementation of schemes for their villages. SF believes that community empowerment may not be ensured without behavioral change cum access to alternatives livelihood options. Hence, SF is promoting centuries old traditional practices, upgraded with technological assistance, including rainwater harvesting, ground water recharge, securing water at village level and promotion of domestic commodities (handicraft) for income generation, through active involvement of the communities.
