  2. 2. From the Chairperson Column... SCALING UP INCLUSIVE AND GREEN PRODUCTIVITY Alternative for rural movement (ARM) has transformed in to a movement in Balasore district and Odisha State in the recent years. The volume of development efforts are not the only criteria but of mind to include the concerns that are interwoven and impede scale up. As an organisation being dedicated to the cause of women and children welfare, it has empha- sized on women empowerment, maternal and child health, child labour, girl trafficking and es- tablished a child help line for arresting child abuse. Women's collectives inform of SHGs have taken a tough local stand to prevent such negations to happen thus ensuring a safe & secured rurality. Project support from esteemed ACA,Denmark, NABARD, Japan Consulate, MISEREOR, NRHM, Blue Door Foundation ,Give India ,Childline India Foundation ,Department of Agriculture, Govt. of Odisha, GlobeMed, Global Giving Foundation and Meheta Family Foundation, are praise worthy in this regard. Observing the precarious referral services and health drives of the State department, ARM has accepted the challenge of managing a model hospital under NRHM in a remote rural set up which has been a huge success in terms of users turn up cum maternity referral point. A ne- glected campus before hand has changes to a hube of around 30000 patients per year having 280 maternity cases. Every effort is put to address that primary sector of rural economy i.e. agriculture through a green and productive drive under the active co-operation of NABARD, Bhubaneswar. The intro- duction of new varieties, practices, increase in yield and organic farming are high lights of the project benefiting the large chunk of our target groups. Details would unfold in the pages ahead. I do thank one and all who have come forward to make this scaling up a success through an inclusive and green approach altogether. Thanks Sumati Raj ARM Annual Report 2011-12 2222
  3. 3. Coordinating Member’s FARMERS’ FOCUS ON FARM About 80% of our population leave in villages out of which over 50% are below poverty line. The kingpin behind the sismal picture is nothing but our eratic farming. Lack of technology use, absence of departmen- tal convergence, non-exiistence of farmers collective associated with not focused approach have added to the woes. Esteemed NABARD, the pioneer in agriculture and rural finance in India in collaboration with ARM has come up in the last couple of years to identify the weakness and threats associated with Balasore agri- culture so that the opportunities available could be exploited and strengthed. The pilot project on Augu- menting farm productivity is a bold step in this regard which addreses the multiple issues of improved farm practices, enhancing productivity, increasing marketable surplus, scalling of food security and formation of farmers collectives in Balasore district. ARM has taken a lead role for assessment and refinement of agriculture in Balasore district under the guidance of NABARD RO, Bhubaneswar. The production level of paddy, greengram and groundnut have doubled up including net income of farmers. Soil health and environmental concerns have been taken care of through soil test based fertilizer application and organic cultivation of low input sustainable agriculture. Augumenting farm productivity has also been taken up through BGREI and no effort spread for its lateral spread to the entire district through master farmers. Formation of farmers collectives have led the productivity drive from the front. Hope to get more cooperation from our near and dear farmer in the coming days.

  5. 5. Gender Advancement SHG promotion Programme The main constraints behind rural women backwardness is their lack of solidarity. Women SHGs these which exist in small rural pockets are untrained and un organized to lead themselves. The present sup- port for SHG promotion and their capacity building NABARD Bhubaneswar has fulfilled the need of orga- nizing women SHGs, strengthening the existing owns and capacity building of their leads and number for participants in the socio economic activities on contemporary village setup. A brief description of the numbers of groups organized and activities taken as given here under Besides the SHG promotion programme we have conducted 2 study on women trafficking with proper guidance of Justice & Care,Mumbai . GEETA project for women rights against domestic violence GEETA women sat together and brainstormed captions that they thought would make effective campaigns focussed on 4 topics: domestic violence, dowry, marriage registration, di- vorce/abandonment of wives. We sought the advice of NAWO and a state level women’s Self Help Group trainer regarding the design and captions. We then worked with a local artist to design and print the posters. We decided not to make leaflets for time constraints and instead focus our efforts on developing high impact posters.

The second round of poster campaign will begin in another 4 months Challenges We were unable to visit the final organisation we had planned due to logistical problems NAWO were unable to take GEETA on an exposure of a field campaign they were conducting due to adverse weather conditions finding suitable places to paste the posters Adverse weather conditions Impact: GEETA gained exposure to the corporate sector of their society- which was a fascinating experience for all of them After visiting organisations that are also working within the field of women’s rights, the GEETA com- mittee gained a great deal of confidence that they are able to become change makers in their society The exposure visit provided them with ideas of how they will actually start their campaign activities GEETA women were able to make connections with various or- ganisations and realised the fountain of support they have available to them Our partner organisations; NAWO and TCS were able to meet the GEETA committee for the first time, and build upon our new relationship Community begin to hear positive community message about gender equality Mindsets of various community members will change The quality of life for women of Baliapal is increased The community becomes more harmonised and can work to- wards achieving sustainable development The GEETA committee are recognised as the face behind the campaign, more community awareness is created for them ARM Annual Report 2011-12 6666

Community Health PHC Management In spite of gradual improvement in health status over many years, preventable mortal- ity and morbidity in Orissa are high. The root cause of poor health continue to be poverty, so- cial deprivation, lower levels of literacy, inefficient health systems and lack of infrastructure for health care and disease control. Socio cultural inequalities and barriers, insufficient as- sertion and demand for health care, inadequate geography spread of service outlets and poor quality health care reduce access to effectiveness of public services where in women, children and tribal cum backward communities are the most affected. ARM is managing a Primary Health Centre at Paschimbad for last 4 years with ac- tive support of local public as well as financial support from NRHM,Govt. of Odisha.The goal of NRHM is thus to improve the availability of and access to quality health care by people espe- cially for those residing in rural area, the poor women and children. During the year we have achieved the target as follows: Health service Provided Total Total outdoor patients treated 22571 Total indoor patients 617 Total Referral to nearest hospital 311 Total Ambulance service 467 Total Institutional delivery 145 Total Pathological test conducted 3158 ANC 285 ARM Annual Report 2011-12 14141414

  18. 18. Activities In The Field Of Diabetes Prevention, Care & Treatment During The Year 2011-2012 A. Awareness Generation and Screening camp on Diabetes at the village level. It is a matter of great concern that the prevalence of diabetes among the rural men, women and adolescent population and children is increasing very fast. To face this challenge ARM has been relentlessly striving for the last 5 years. ARM has given thrust on preven- tion of diabetes through awareness generation and screening camps. During this reporting period ARM has conducted 8 Awareness Generation & Screening Camps at Badhapal & Parulia,Asti, ,Kantapal,Chhotkhanpur,Kalikapur,Devkumar,Khalpakh Villages in Jaleswar & Baliapal Block in Balsore District of Orissa. The duration of each camp was for one day. 64-66 rural men, women & adolescent boys & girls attended each camp on the average. Four resource persons including doctors, paramedical staff & health workers attended each camp. Eight awareness generation camps have created awareness among 528 rural men, women and adoles- cent population about diabetes, its causes and outcomes, complications of diabetes and also lifestyle modification. Out of 528 per- sons 262 at risk persons were screened for diagnosis of diabetes. Out of 262 people screened 137 persons have been detected with diabetes. They have been counseled on diabetes management and referred to the Hospital run by ARM and also to other Govt. Hos- pitals for further care & treatment. The following picture shows the Awareness Generation & Screening Camps conducted by ARM at the Village Level. ARM Annual Report 2011-12 B. Awareness Generation Camp among the Children in the School Level on Diabetes and on healthy life style modifica- tion. Without getting any funds from any sources ARM has come for- ward to prevent diabetes among the school children through school-based intervention. The main objective of this programme is to prevent diabetes among the school children through Aware- ness Generation on Diabetes and induction of lifestyle modifica- tion among the school children. During the reporting period ARM has conducted 6 awareness generation and screening camps at 4 High Schools in Jaleswar & Baliapal Block in Balasore Dis- trict in Orissa. The following picture shows the Awareness Gen- eration Camp conducted by ARM at the school level during the financial year 2011-2012. C. Health Check-up Camp for the diabetes patients. The people with diabetes in the rural area in Balasore District in Orissa have hardly any access to regular health checkup and care. ARM has come forward to take care of the people with diabetes by organizing health checkup for them in technical help and collaboration of the doc- tors and health staff of the Hospital run by the organisation under Na- tional Rural Health Mission. During the year under report ARM has conducted 2 health checkup camps for the people with diabe- tes at Jharpimpal & Baiganbadia villages in Jaleswar Block D. Primary Health Care Programme on Diabetic Foot Care. Due to lack of awareness and lack of access to care and treatment the people with diabetes develop foot ulcers in the rural areas in Balasore District in Orissa. When the people with foot ulcers go to the hospital it is too late. In most cases the limbs are amputed to save the lives. ARM has come forward to take care of the diabe- tes people with foot ulcers in technical help and col- laboration of the Doctors and Paramedical Staff of the Hospital run by the Organisation. During the year un- der report ARM has identified 8 diabetic persons with foot ulcers and has arranged their treatment in different hospitals, 8 limbs have been saved. E. Awareness Generation Programme among the SHG women members on gestational diabetes As usual as the earlier year ARM has conducted Awareness Gen- eration Camp on GDM among the members of self-help groups. This programme created awareness among the women about dia- betes in general and gestational diabetes among the pregnant women in particular. During the reporting period ARM has con- ducted 4 Awareness Generation Camps at Paschimbad,Asti,Parulia & Devkumars in Jaleswar & Baliapal Block in Balasore District in Orissa. ARM has conducted this programme from its own finan- cial sources in active help and collaboration of the doctors and paramedical staff of the hospital runs by the organisation under National Rural Health Mission. 206 disadvantaged women includ- ing 42 pregnant women attended the awareness generation camp. The pregnant women have been mobilized to conduct sugar toler- ance test during the 18-24 weeks of pregnancy. 18181818

  21. 21. Case Studies Susanta Pila, an inhabitant of Ikadpal village, is a marginal farmer having only 4 decimals of lands, which are mainly mono-cropped. Susanta is a primary school drop out who had to discontinue his studies after Class-II due to poverty. Susanta, aged 50 years, lives in a small hut in an uncouth atmosphere with his wife Rabati Pila, and 1 son [16 years] and 1 daughter [19 years]. He somehow ekes out a living by growing local paddy in his 4 decimals lands and other 1.16 acre land hired on lease for Kharif season. He lives below the poverty line without having food security for his family for the entire year. He cultivates in 1 acre and 16 decimals of land every year [4 decimals own land and 1.16 acre land taken on lease]. All through- out the year he gets only 1 crop i.e. local Indica variety of paddy. Besides, due to adherence to traditional system of farming, land production is very low - only 11 quintals from 1 acre and 20 decimals of land. Rice is their staple food and the family needs 3.5 kg. of rice daily, i.e. 1277.50 kg. of rice for the whole year for family consumption. But unfortunately he gets only 11 quintals of paddy, i.e. 660kg. of rice from 1 acre and 20 decimals of land for the whole year, if there is a good monsoon. If there is a natural disaster, the cultivation gets badly damaged filling to the cup of misery of the family to its brim. Thus the family lives in perpetual poverty and privation. However, Susanta Pila was motivated to cultivate RGL 25-37 in the Kharif season of 2011. He was given 1 day’s pre-season training from the Pilot project of NABARD implemented by ARM, a NGO in Balasore district in Odisha. He was trained up in the seed treatment, land preparation, fertilizers application, pest management and above all in the scientific system of cultivation of RGL 25-37, a HYV paddy recom- mended by ICAR. He was also given support for inputs like seeds, fertilizers, insecticides etc. on 50% subsidy basis from the Pilot programme of NABARAD. Thanks to the authorities of NABARD and in particular to Mr. Laxindhar Dash, DDM, NABARD for his bold initiative, kind help and collaboration, the implementation of Pilot Programme of NABARD through ARM, Odisha has changed the life of Susanta Pila. Now to assess the impact of the application of the technology in the life and livelihood of Susanta Pila, the beneficiary farmer, let us have a comparative study of agricultural yield and net income before and after the implementation of the programme. Agricultural yield and resultant income from 1 acre and 20 decimals of land before the implementation of pilot programme of NABARD, Imple- mented by ARM, Odisha Agricultural yield and resultant income from 1 acre and 20 decimals of land after the implementation of pilot programme of NABARD, Implemented by ARM, Odisha Impacts of the project: Introduction of scientific system of farming – Before the implementation of the pilot project of NABARD, the beneficiary farmer used to grow only Local Indica variety of Paddy in the traditional method. But after the implementation of the project Susanta no longer adheres to traditional system of farming. He has started cultivating HYV paddy in a scientific manner. Successful dissemination of appropriate technologies – The technologies of improved farm practices and cultivation of disease-resistant and high yielding variety of RGL 25-37 have been suc- cessfully transferred among the beneficiary farmer. Phenomenal Increase in agricultural productivity - After the implementation of the pilot programme with the introduction of scientific system of farming, agricultural productivity per acre has increased phenomenally. For example, before the implementation of the project, Susanta only used to get Local variety of 1100 kg. of Season Name of the crop Total yield at 1 acre and 20 decimals of land Value of total produce Cost of cultivation Net income Kharif Local Indica variety of paddy By product Straw 1100 kg. 4 Kahans [1100 x Rs.10/- per kg] = 11,000 [4 Kahans x Rs.200/- per Kahans] = 800 Rs.11,800 i] Cost for inputs like seeds, fertil- izers, insecticides = Rs.1,500 ii] Cost for ploughing Rs.500 iii] Cost for labour = Rs.3,000 iv] Cost for lease for 1 acre land for 1 season = Rs.3,500 Total = 8,500 Rs.11,800 – Rs. 8,500 = Rs.3,300 Season Name of the crop Total yield at 1 acre and 20 deci- mals of land Value of total produce Cost of cultivation Net income Kharif HYV paddy – RGL 25-37 By product Straw 2250 kg. 4 Kahans [2250 x Rs.14/- per kg] = 31,500 [4 Kahans x Rs.150/- per Kahans] = 600 Rs.32,100 i] Cost for inputs like seeds, fertilizers, insecticides = Rs.4,800 ii] Cost for ploughing Rs.1,000 iii] Cost for labour = Rs.4,000 iv] Cost for lease for 1 acre land for 1 season = Rs.3,500 Total = 13,300 Rs.32,100 – Rs.13,300 = Rs.18,800 ARM Annual Report 2011-12 21212121
  22. 22. Rise in Income – The Pilot programme of NABARD has raised the meager income of the poor farmer Susanta spectacularly. Before the implementation of the programme from 1.5 acre of land Susanta had only net income of Rs.3,300, which has been increased to Rs.18,800 after the pro- gramme. His income has been increased roughly six times of his previous income. The comparison of return from 1.5 acre land area be- fore and after the pilot programme of NABARD has been represented below by Bar-diagram. 1 denotes the Net Income of Susanta Pila from 1.5 acre of land before the implementation of the Pilot programme of NABARD. 2 denotes the Net Income of Susanta Pila from 1.5 acre of land after the implementation of the Pilot programme of NABARD. Up-gradation of standard of living – With a perceptible rise in income level the standard of living of Susanta Pila has been improved noticeably. His purchasing capacity has been increased leading to increase in the per capita con- sumption level. Food Security – Before the implementation of the pilot programme they had to starve or remain under-fed day after day. The family had only food security for hardly 200 days in a year. Now they will have food secu- rity for the entire year. Case Study - 2 Rasalpur is a picturesque village where lives our poor friend Paresh Chandra Pal in a tiny cottage, on sordid condition. Black-complexioned, small, Paresh is a youth of 38 years. At first meet, he wins the heart of a stranger with his ever-smiling face. Thanks to the Lord, crushing poverty has failed to snatch the smile from his lip. He belongs to Other Backward Caste. He lives with his family, which includes 6 members in total – Paresh himself, his mother, one sister, his wife, 1 daughter and 1 son. With outstanding zeal and stamina Paresh could continue his studies upto Class - VI. Paresh’s life is a tearful tale of continuous struggle for existence. Agriculture is their prime source of livelihood. They own only 1 acre of land where he gets only local Indica variety of paddy in the Kharif season and Green Gram in the Rabi season. Due to traditional system of farming he gets only 705 kg. of paddy from 1 acre of land in the Kharif season. In the Rabi season he cultivates Green Gram in his own land. He gets only 1.1 Qtl. Of Green Grams from his 1 acre of land. He sells his green grams @Rs.35/- per kg and gets only 110 Kg x Rs.35= Rs.3850/ -. The cost of cultivation is Rs.1400/- and his net income is [Rs.3850 – Rs.1400] = Rs.2450/-. The pilot programme of NABARD implemented by ARM made a sea-change in the life of Paresh. Thanks to the Almighty, Paresh was enthused to hear about the scientific cultivation of Green Grams under the Pilot pro- gramme of NABARD from the project team of ARM. He was given 2 day’s training in the scientific cultiva- tion of Green Grams on 15.01.2011. After the training was over he was given inputs like seeds, bio-fertilizers, pesticides etc. on a 50% subsidy basis. Under the seed village programme of Green Grams 0.25 acre of his land was covered under cultivation of Green Grams. However, after the successful dissemination of technol- ogy Paresh cultivated green grams in 1 acre of land. He got the production of 225 kg. of green grams from 1 acre of land. He got a price of Rs.74/- per kg. of Green Grams as seed and as such he got Rs.74 x 225 = Rs.16650/- from his produce. The cost of cultivation was Rs.3400/-. Therefore, he got a net income of Rs.16650 – Rs.3400 = Rs.13250/- by selling 225 kg of seeds of green grams in the new situation. His bet in- come from the cultivation of Green Grams has been increased from Rs.2450/- to Rs.13250/- and finally his income has been increased by 5.4 times. With the perceptible increase in income purchasing capacity of Paresh has undoubtedly been increased. However, our dear friend Paresh now feels happy and thinks very positively for his future. Now to assess the impact of the project in the life of Paresh, the beneficiary farmer, let us have a comparative study of agricultural yield and net income before and after the implementation of the programme.

Agricultural yield and resultant income from 1 acre of land after the implementation of pilot programme of NABARD, Implemented by ARM, Odisha Impacts of the project in the life of Paresh Chandra Pal, the beneficiary farmer of Green Gram cultivation: Cultivation of Green Gram in a scientific way – Before the implementation of the pilot project of NABARD, the beneficiary farmer used to grow only Green Grams in the Rabi season in the traditional method. But after the implementation of the project Paresh has started cultivating green grams in a scientific way. Spectacular Increase in productivity of Green Grams - After the successful dissemination of technology Paresh has started cultivating green grams in a scientific manner resulting in spectacular increase in agricultural yield per acre. Before the implementation of the project, Paresh only used to get Local variety of Green Grams of 110 kg. in 1 acre of land in the Rabi season. But after the implementation of the project Paresh has got 225 kg. of Green Grams in 1 acre of land. As such, the agricultural yield of Green Grams has been increased two times with the successful transfer of technology. Multiplication of Income – The successful transfer of technology in cultivation of Green Grams has multiplied the income level of Paresh Chandal Pal. Before the implementation of the programme from 1 acre of land Paresh had only net income of Rs.2450, which has been increased to Rs.13250 after the programme. His income has been increased roughly 5.4 times of his previous income. The comparison of return from 1 acre land area from Green Gram cultivation before and after the pilot programme of NABARD has been represented below by Bar-diagram. 1 denotes the Net Income of Paresh Chandra Pal from 1 acre of land before the imple- mentation of the Pilot programme of NABARD. 2 denotes the Net Income of Paresh Chandra Pal from 1 acre of land after the implemen- tation of the Pilot programme of NABARD.

  24. 24. Sustainable Agriculture BGREI under RKVY The natural disaster prone coastal Baliapal block is predominantly an agrarian block .Most of the farmers are small and marginal farmer centre. Paddy is the principal crop. The project block demonstration of paddy under BEGREI has aimed at improving production and productiv- ity of rice by reducing 50% gap between the actual and potential productivity of rice and in- creasing of crop yield of rice through scientific crop man- agement, promoting of line sowing/line transplanting and input use efficiency. Under the project 500 ha. of land has been covered under demonstration of paddy under BGREI and it has created a larger impact in improving production and productivity of rice. Farmers at Baliapal block have ac- cepted the method introduced. They have gained capacity to adopt skills on deep ploughing, line sowing and line transplanting, seedling treatment with suitable insecticide, weed management, plant protection, using drum seeder and mandwa weeder. Farmers have become excited with delight for increasing quality production.

  27. 27. SEED TREATMENT CAMPAIGN Seed Treatment Campaign on Groundnut (Rabi 2011-12) in Baliapal Block organized by ARM Objectives: To increase production, some parameters have been selected by the scientists. Out of which seed treat- ment is one parameter. Till date farmers are not fully aware about seed treatment for which Govt. of Orissa has taken a massive drive on kios issue. Seed treatment campaigns have been organized in re- mote villages of different blocks. Provision of seed treating chemical (vita vax-power) method of treat- ment to reduce the seed borne diseases of different crops is to be achieved. When seed treatment will be achieved 100% diseases in main crop field will be reduced and crop loss up to 20% will also be re- duced. Target Village: 4, Namely-Ikarpal, Nikhira, Chaumukhand Ganja Financial assistance: District Agriculture Officer, Balasore, Orissa Programme details: On dated 30.11.2011 a Seed Treatment Campaigns are organized with the support of Agriculture Department, Govt. Of Orissa in vil- lage of Ikarpal, Nikhira, Chaumukhand Ganja in Baliapal Block of Balasore District in collaboration with volunter organization named as Alternative for Rural Movement. Mr.Rajendra Kumar Rana, Co- ordinating Member welcome the resource persons gathered the participants participants and Mr.Bijay Kumar Mishra,DAO,Jaleswar presided over the campaign. Following enlisted resource persons participated in the campaign and imparted the technical know how about idea seed treatment to Lead farmers and Associate Farmers. Farmers have been mobilized in the campaign and they showed interest to adapt the ground nut seed treatment method. The campaign has been organized by conducting theoretical and practical classes. Experienced resource persons shared their valuable suggestion through lectures for orientation of the target people. Thus the interest of learning among target farmers has been imbibed. Experienced re- source persons have conducted the activity of “How to do Seed Treatment before starting of any cultivation” during practical session of campaign. This has encouraged farmers and motivated them for seed treatment in scientific method. In one cleaned and dry big earthen pot (Kalasi) drop 1 kg seed and mix up with it 2 gm Vi- tavex powder. In this process if farmer use the treated seeds in cultivation the production will be increased and profitable and chances of in- sect in crops will be less. This process can be applicable for all types of seeds. With the in- volvement of all Govt. officials seed treatment training has been organised in such process for all farmers of concerned village. For more culti- vation need more modern technique. At the time cultivation all the farmers have been advised to give effort for better cultivation along with the counseling from Govt. officials also required for better crop cultivation and financial betterment of farm- ers. The Soil testing, production, medicines for production, pest control etc have also been discussed in the campaign. ARM Annual Report 2011-12 27272727
  28. 28. For practical testing of process demonstrated by Govt. Officials and then done by farmers presented there what they have learnt from this process and how they can be able to apply in their cultivation. These kinds of steps have been taken for farmers’ betterment for their cultivation, the farmers remained thankful to Govt. official and ARM. Process adopted for people’s participation: To make the environment successful and greater partici- pation of farmers in the programme, various methodologies have been adopted like group discussion, interaction; experience shar- ing, problem sharing, energizers and games. The facilitators from Alternative for Rural Movement have given their efforts best through facilitation of the discussion of resource persons to make the participants activate and involved in the session successfully. Reaction of the people: Mr.Banshidhar Pal,Mr.Madan Mohan Bhuyan,Gadadhar Mandal & Bhagban Barik etc.from village Nikhira have expressed their inter- est to know about process of seed treatment in their local level and keep their opinion to adopt this process as far as possible by them. From village Ikarpal Gaurahari Badhei,Mr.Panchan Pila,Mr.Ramesh Chandra Patra & Ramhari Pradhanetc. have shared the problems their experience they are doing, the storage of seeds though not in technical way but are doing in their manner. Even how they are facing problem in storage of seeds, also they urge to know thor- oughly about the Seed Treatment. Mr.Bhagabat Sahu,Mr.Yudhistir Patra,Mr.Ananda Pramanik & Mr.Sudhanshu Manna etc. from village Chaumukh & Mr.Pitabas Patra,Ranjan kumar Panda,Mr.Pradeep Behera & Mr. Ratnakar barik etc.from village Ganja have showed their interest to receive the help of Agriculture de- partment official at the time of requirement of processing the seed treatment if necessary.
