CURE strength is in its process based approach. CURE recognizes the importance of involving communities in the design, implementation, management and oversight of community-based initiatives; in particular for the development of community infrastructure, promotion of livelihoods and improving access to health care and education services.
As part of different projects,(hyperlink to CAP, SP, TERI) CURE has mobilized women and community groups, which have participated in the identification and prioritization of needs, preparation of community action plans and monitoring service provision. The effort has been to ensure representation and compact with the poorest and marginal groups with the smallest voices.
A range of groups are facilitated as per project needs :-
• Livelihood groups for small and large business enterprises;
• Ommunity groups for development of action plans to improve access to basic service such as sanitation, water, power, social welfare etc;
• Toilet / HH Savings Groups to enable families to save up for investment in toilets / housing;
• Youth groups (boys and girls) for youth led community development and civic engagement
• Women’s groups for gender empowerment;
• Self-Help Groups for small savings, access to credit, loan swaps etc.
