Institution Building

JKBT has been working closely with the rural communities of Sikar District ever since its inception. During this phase it was realized that institution building among the rural communities was essential to promote ownership and accountability. Village Development Committees were promoted with the objective to institutionalize the development process. The VDC are responsible for planning. implementing, collecting contribution, monitoring and supervision of interventions. JKBT has also been instrumental in the promotion of SHGs to provide a platform for women to communicate and participate in the development initiatives. Gradually these SHGs also became the perfect medium for involving women in savings and loan activities and thus adding another and a more meaningful depth to its woman's empowerment activities.
