Building Institutions

Development of institutions and organisational capabilities in an underdeveloped economy and strengthening the delivery system for development programmes are key to deal effectively with problems of development and redistributive justice. These institutions also serve as the mechanism to monitor the progress of voluntary effort in various sectors. An organization with its institutions can make tremendous contributions in people's participation both in financial terms and through beneficiary support. To accomplish the task Badlao Foundation has formed five such institutions.

This philosophy in fact inspired the Foundation to undertake formation of Mahila Sabhas and instituting Mahila Sabha Mutual Benefit Trust. The Mahila Sabhas would be the vanguard for any development programme as it is crucial for the empowerment of the society but MBT is a people initiative; a movement.

Yet another institution is Samarthan Weakling Development Foundation, known as Samarthan. It started on a very tiny scale during 2007 with disbursement of small loans to few families but has succeeded to take a concrete shape to ensure and bring about significant change and improvement in quality of the life of poor people. Within a period of just 3 years (May 2007 to March 2010), Samarthan has grown from scratch to a level of having 2940 members organised under traditional Self Help Groups (SHGs) of 15 to 20 members and 423 Grameen Joint Liability Groups (JLGs) model of five members per group. Samarthan is one of the very few organisations in the State which has served the SHGs and JLGs. The tribal question is becoming more and more intense. The government initiatives and projects instead of strengthening the local level agricultural economy and micro entrepreneurship relying on land based activity or alternate employment to boost lean agricultural season employment simply doled out the fund.

This failed to create small savings and also accumulate capital in poor agricultural families that have very little alternatives but to borrow from the moneylenders by mortgaging their lands. The programmes suffer due to the absence of basic element of “connect” and “reachout”. The mission has been to empower the economically disadvantaged people for social transformation through effective and efficient financial services with participatory approach in a transparent and sustainable manner.
