Monthly Progress Report (MPR)
Month: August, 2012
Partner name: Disha–RCDSSS, Ajmer


1.                  Context :

It was first month of the last half year of the project. Hence preparing half yearly report, financial report and cash flow was worked out with all the staff members. There had been no budget activity conducted in this month due to unavailability of approval and fund.

Rains came 1.5 months late with full pace in the region hence people were so busy in their field works. Since we have been working on the extension of life project for some time, situational analysis of 30% villages (6 villages) was conducted by the staff in the new area.

Three participants from our organization including coordinator participated in baseline workshop held in Jabalpur. As a followup of this base line of all 15 villages was conducted for the new life project titled “Ankur”. Lot of difficulties and challenges were faced during this exercise in the field. First of all it was cropping season and farmers are busy with their farm activities, secondly, they have past bad experiences with other NGOs and companies so it was quite difficult to mobilize their trust, lastly the given time for conducting baseline of 4000 households, and 15 villages was very very challenging and difficult yet we did our best but again data entry is delayed.

Our regular support and follow up of activities extended to the community as a result we were able to get some achievements however stated further.
