Theory of Change

Considering change as an eternal factor, organization believes in acquiring necessary skills with the changing social, economic and legal environment .To create a just, equitable and sensitized society, there should be no gender and social discrimination as it hinders our social development and weakens the society as a whole. Every human being has innate potential for learning, including adolescent girls with proper environment and opportunities.
We believe that the transformation occurs when 'one plans with people' and 'not for them' to promote changes in attitudes and empowerment through collectivization. The vision of the organization as a long-term goal is helpful. Moreover, the necessary preconditions through collaborative social mobilization and collective ownership also need to be created. The frequent review and mid-course evaluations have to be integral part of successful transformation so that the outcome pathway is followed. The mid-course reviews have to be in the form of action learning with rational cause-effect relationship. Ensuring this strategy and following the process purity are essential for change and success. Making the intervention process-based by participatory monitoring and fine-tuning the actual outcomes or solution-provisions to reach the expected ones are core elements of felt positive change.
