AWARENESS RAISING

Creation of awareness among the beneficiaries and stakeholders on various issues of concern is important in any development project. ISDCM field workers were oriented especially in Health, Nutrition, Hygiene, Sanitation, Water and Education etc. so that they could motivate the beneficiaries and target groups to improve their overall socio-economic conditions. Creation of awareness is mandatory for all field workers. These field workers during their field visits discussed and disseminated new knowledge and information with the beneficiaries and target groups.

In 2008, ISDCM field workers have disseminated information on health, nutrition, education and sanitation etc. to the beneficiaries and stakeholders in large number which is presented in the following tables:
