On October 29th, 2018 the Gram Sabha meeting was organised in Lahan Kadvan, Nandurbar. CORO has been working in this village for quiet some time now. VCPC was held here on 28th July. That was the time when the village and the Gram Panchayat spoke about policies related to children.
The villagers have begun taking initiatives to ensure how that the child rights are met and violence against children is stopped. Different government policies have also been initiated in the village. This was the first time ever that child assembly was held. Demands for toilet facilities in the school, toilet facilities, gymnasium, sports equipment, establishment of a bridge block in the school premises, to take various competitions in school, to maintain proper nutrition in the secondary school, to build school wall and to repair the digital class, to get laptops, computers etc were passed.
The Gram Panchayat and Gram Sabha have sought cooperation from the members of the village for development plan. In future, efforts will be made to organise Gram Sabhas regularly.
Everyone congratulated CORO for putting in required efforts and to make this happen.
