Human Capacity Building
In its broadest interpretation, Human Capacity Building is an essential ingredient of overall development of society. RDC focuses on a series of actions directed at enabling the communities in the development process to increase their knowledge, skills and understandings and to develop the attitudes needed to bring about the desired developmental change.
Our involvement in the human capacity building constitutes one of the fundamentals of our activities, e.g. to build community level micro institutions and facilitating them to take up feasible entrepreneurial activities through various income generation programmes (IGPs).
Micro Institution Building
RDC engages in micro institutions building process through facilitation measures for Self Help Groups (SHGs) and Community Interest Groups (CIGs) formation in accordance with the project guidelines and specifications. The SHGs and the CIGs are small, informal, homogeneous and affinity group of people, voluntarily coming together with others who are affected by a particular issue (experience, disadvantage, discrimination, etc) to support each other and to work together to change the disadvantage affecting them. Activities that groups include micro finance, income generation, community education, information, mutual support, services and advocacy.
Income Generation Programmes (IGPs)
Our initiative in the income generation programmes (IGPs) front is to provide facilitating measures to the formed Community level Micro institutions in the targeted project areas to take up feasible entrepreneurial activities to generate income on a sustainable basis.
Further IGP, besides micro-finance, is one of the prime motivating factors in the sustainability process of institution building. This enhances and broadens their employment opportunities including self-employment and development of entrepreneurial skills.
