  2. 2. ARM Annual Report 2012-13 Preface Alternative for Rural Movement (ARM) has been working in the rural areas of the eastern part of odisha from the year 1989. During its long journey it came across so many obstacles and still it maintained its originality, mission and vision. It has been reaching the deprived community at the time of need. Now it became transformed into a movement in Balasore district. It has created its place in the heart of the community for which I am thankful to my community members and the persons who are associated with us for a long time to make our efforts successful in terms of enhancing the capacities of the community, making the community aware about the various aspects of Health, enhancing the sustainable income in form of Self Help Groups, motivating the farmers for the use of new technologies in the agricultural activities, helping the child in distress etc. As a grass root level organisation we are working on the issues like women and children welfare, women empowerment, maternal & child health, child labour, girl trafficking and child help line etc. We are very much thankful to our esteemed partners like Action Child Aid (ACA), Denmark, National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD), Japan Consulate, MISEREOR, National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), Blue Door Foundation, Give India, Childline India Foundation, Department of Agriculture, Govt. of Odisha, GlobeMed, Global Giving Foundation and Meheta Family Foundation etc. for their constant encouragement and support in our rural movement.

  3. 3. ARM Annual Report 2012-13 FOREWORD Education, Health, Livelihood and Agriculture have been critical focus areas in our inclusiveness approach & strategy in the rural areas of Baliapal, Jaleswar and Bhogarai blocks of Balsore district. Constantly we are putting our effort in our rural packets to make the community to aware about the positive and negative impacts of these issues and take appropriate steps to overcome these. Nearly about 80% of our population live in villages out of which over 50% are below poverty line. The causes behind this are many such as: lack of education, lack of health infrastructure & services, lack of skilled human resource, lack of use of technology in farming, lack of departmental convergence, lack of awareness, lack of associations, lack of focused approach, lack of strategy etc. There are large numbers of factures which are adding misery to our rural population. Balasore district has a lot of potential in terms of Agriculture. In keeping view of that, Esteemed NABARD, the pioneer in agriculture and rural finance in India in collaboration with ARM has come up with a pilot project called “Augmenting Farm Productivity” in the last couple of years to identify the weakness and threats associated with agriculture so that the opportunities available could be exploited and strengthened. This Project is a bold step in this regard which addresses the multiple issues of improved farm practices, adoption of new technologies, enhancing productivity, increasing marketable surplus, scaling up food security and formation of farmers collectives in Balasore district. ARM has played a pivotal role in health sector by accepting the challenge to manage the Primary Health Centre (PHC), Paschimabad in collaboration with the NRHM, Odisha which is meeting the expectation of the GoO and Community. Similarly ARM creating instances for others by its programmes called Adarsha Vidya Mandira, Reproductive and Child Health, Child Line etc. We are dedicating our Annual Report for the year 2012-13 to all our partners and well wishers, so that they will join their hands with us to build a self sufficient community.
