Community Managed Health Care Project (CMHC) project : Eco-Social Development Organization (ESDO) a non-government, non-profit and non-political organization registered with NGO Affairs Bureau of Government of Bangladesh started its operation in 1988 with an objective to alleviate mass poverty by the initiative of a group of youths of Thakurgaon. At the beginning it started philanthropic welfare activities in its own way. Afterwards, initiators’ close association and involvement with the community especially with the disadvantaged section of the society inspired them to feel and realize that a planned and organized effort is imperative to change the fate of the land-less and asset-less people in general and the women in particular. Its experience of a devastating flood in the operational areas of the ESDO in its very initiation year eventually compelled the initiators to formulate a plan and develop a systematic approach to address the problems of this section of people with special emphasis on children and women. Since then ESDO has been undertaking various need based development activities including health services within its operational areas.

Safety net support for the poor for referral of maternal & newborn complications Expected results of the project : - CCMGs will be capable to manage the Community clinic in favor of providing quality health service. Increased number of births will be conducted by CSBAs in selected communities Increased number of women will receive PNC within 2 days of delivery from CSBAs in selected communities Increased number of referrals made by CSBAs will be acted on for maternal & newborn complications to upgraded FWC, UHC, District Hospital or Medical College Gender Equality Each and every step of the project component will be given attention to maintain gender equality such as formation of CCMG and CSG. Training of the CSBAs trained under this project will improve access to skilled attendants during delivery directly supporting the right of women to essential health care particularly for the poor. Besides other gender constraints sometimes sex (male) of service providers, insensitive/ unfriendly attitude of providers, long waiting time etc discourage women to seek pregnancy care from health facilities. As CSBAs are women, trained and got skills to provide pregnancy care and as they will provide services at household level this will help to increase their access to skilled care.
  13. 13. Sustainability CSBAs after training will return and stay in their communities and will continue to provide services with supportive supervision from the government system which is planned to be strengthened through this project. In addition, strengthening the CCMGs and involving them in demand creation, accountability of CSBAs and referral at local level will increase community ownership and ensure sustainability at this level. 4.

Social and Economic Transformation of the Ultra-Poor Project Financed By Technical Support By Implementing Associate District Project Duration Total Budget : DFID/SHIREE : CARE Bangladesh : Eco-Social Development Organization (ESDO) : Lalmonirhat : March 2009 to July 2014 : 13,50,80315 Taka Background: The Context of Bangladesh: Bangladesh has made significant progress towards poverty reduction over the past decade. During this period the proportion of people living in poverty fell by 9% and
  15. 15. was accompanied by marked improvements in other economic and social outcomes1. These changes are understood to have stemmed from the country’s strong economic growth which averaged 5% per annum throughout the nineties. As a result of population growth however, Bangladesh still entered the new millennium with the same absolute number of poor people in its population as ten years previously. Bangladesh therefore remains one of the poorest and most densely populated countries in the world, with 50% of its population of 126 million living in poverty, and with 85 percent of the poor living in rural areas. Some 30 million people currently live in extreme or hard-core poverty, as defined in terms of dietary consumption by a calorific intake of less than 1,805 kcal per capita per day2. The extreme poor did not benefit proportionately from the national economic growth trend of the nineties, and in fact inequality actually increased over the period. Ensuring that the extreme poor are able to participate in and benefit from economic growth by means of innovative and targeted interventions is therefore a key challenge for the achievement of further poverty reduction in Bangladesh. Over all objectives: The purpose statement for the Shiree Challenge Fund provides the long-term Goal of the project: Over 1,000,000 people in rural and urban areas have lifted themselves out of extreme poverty by 2015. The project Purpose is that: Women and men of 40,000 extreme poor households in Northwest Bangladesh are empowered to collectively address the causes of their economic, social and political exclusion that keep them in extreme poverty This purpose highlights the need to facilitate collective action by the extreme poor and the institutionalization of poverty reduction initiatives by the local state. It also emphasizes the need to address underlying causes of extreme poverty which shape and perpetuate the exclusion, marginalization and vulnerability of the extreme poor. This purpose will extend beyond the initial three year period of the project’s life as the consortium partners believe that the journey to sustainable graduation from poverty for the very poorest people is likely to be around a 6-7 year timeframe ESDO-SETU will be implementing women and men of 4463 extreme poor households at Three Unions of Aditmari and Kaligonj Upazila under Lalmonirhat district are empowered to collectively address the causes of their economic, social and political exclusion that keep them in extreme poverty This purpose highlights the need to facilitate collective action by the extreme poor and the institutionalization of poverty reduction initiatives by the local state. It also emphasizes the need to address underlying causes of extreme poverty which shape and perpetuate the exclusion, marginalization and vulnerability of the extreme poor. This purpose will extend beyond the initial three year period of the project’s life as the ESDO partners. Over All Activities of ESDO SETU Project: o Context and participatory poverty analysis with 145 communities (This analysis also includes the institutional and vulnerability context, including for example, poor people’s especially the poorest women’s - access to health services and markets).
  16. 16. o Constructing household profiles of 4463 extreme poor households selected as primary beneficiaries for SETU o Community mobilisation to trigger collective action and emergence of local leaders in 145 communities o Formation of 145 Para Unnayan Committees (PUC) and support to natural leaders o Development and implementation of 145 Community Action Plans o Formation of interest based community action groups, including EKATA (Reflect Circles for Women – a particular strategy for women’s empowerment. (These groups are also central to the project’s health and nutrition strategy) o Formation of community based savings and loans groups o Building linkages to local government (UPs, standing committees, schools, health services) and other service providers with clear articulation of expected outcomes o Self evaluation and assessment workshops for organizational development of PUCs o Cash for work projects to mitigate the impact of monga in collaboration with the Union o Community assessments with regard to potential economic development opportunities (this ensures community capabilities to continue to develop and pursue new opportunities) o Pro-poor sub-sector value chain and market assessments and interventions (dairy, vegetable) – in ways that allow for even greater participation of the extreme poor e.g. in the production cycle and not just in fringe services; o Building sustainable social enterprises of networked village industries involving extremely poor and poor people, and investing in value addition and building sustainable links to market services; o Capacity building of local leaders for business development. Examples of this include capacity building in the areas of business management, accounting and record-keeping, negotiation and bargaining, leadership and enterprise o Development of community based businesses and employment plans that include the poorest people in the community o Building a rural sales-force of self-employed women from extremely poor households to help diversify income generating options (bottom-of-the-pyramid sales, but more importantly to help promote sales for local enterprises, and a network through which knowledge and awareness on a range of issues of relevance to reducing vulnerability to poverty) o Nurturing the start-up and development of IGAs, specifically targeting the inclusion of members of the poorest households o Transfer of small assets or matching grants for business start-up after pre-determined conditions are met o Facilitate linkages to service providers, markets and regulatory institutions to enable access to information, technology, and innovation required for productive and profitable small-scale development (this is linked to individual as well as small group IGA) o Engagement with UP members and chairmen for poverty analysis and planning (also includes sharing information about the union gathered during union selection process)
  17. 17. o Capacity building and skills training for UP members (facilitation skills, poverty analysis, gender and rights awareness, financial management, participatory planning, management and negotiation, enabling business development) o Establishment of forums for civic engagement with local government (gram sabhas, reactivating standing committees o Promoting participatory pro-poor governance based on joint local government-citizen planning o Facilitate improved targeting of social safety nets and emergency relief resources and gather information on levels of resources required for effective social protection for the extreme poor in these unions o Establish a system for the participatory monitoring and evaluation of UP performance of 03 UPs o Capacity Building for project staff (CARE and partners) – especially facilitation techniques to support processes of participatory poverty analysis, community mobilization for community led development, and assessment of economic and business opportunities o Development of a comprehensive Learning, Monitoring and Evaluation (LME) System (including systems to measure impact, program process, and program support/ organisational development) o Organising annual learning events and regional and national levels focused on key knowledge areas (this will also generate information for advocacy at national policy levels) o Documentation/ publication of promising practices and lessons from the field o Influencing national policy and its implementation (National Food Policy 2006; Monitoring and influencing the targeting of government social protection schemes, including the new 100 days employment guarantee; Popularize and monitor the implementation of the Women’s Development Policy 2008; Advocating for approval and resourcing of Domestic Violence Legislation in Bangladesh Office Address Lalmonirhat Office Address: Eco Social Development Organization (ESDO) Banvasha More, Taluk Khotamara Lalmonirhat, Mobile: +88-01713149226 Head Office Address Dhaka Office Address: Eco Social Development Organization (ESDO) College Para, Thakurgaon Tel: 0561-52149. 61599 Fax: 0561-61599 Eco Social Development Organization (ESDO) ESDO House.
