Mukti conducted Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) planning session for the chick-rearing program supported by “Coal India” at two villages – Sunia and Gopinathpur under Egra Block I of Purba Medinipur district on 15th January 2023. The PRA approach aims to incorporate the knowledge and opinions of rural people in the planning and management of development projects and programs.
About 77 marginalized women associated with Mukti SHGs attended the sessions. In order to plan, participants need data and information about the villages where the “chicken rearing” project is implemented. Participants collected the details of population, households, occupations, public infrastructure facilities such as schools and anganwadis, conditions of drinking water supply, sanitation, primary health care, conditions of road, electricity, agricultural fields and physical/electronic connectivity and so on. The data and information were collected to identify the shortfall/gaps and plan for fulfilling the gaps.
