|The Madhya Pradesh Rural
MPRLP works to eliminate rural poverty by empowering rural households in nine mainly tribal districts of the state. MPRLP takes a bottom-up approach, facilitating, inspiring and guiding community-driven collective and individual action to reduce poverty through Gram Sabha (village assemblies).
MPRLP improves the lives of the poor and vulnerable by routing funds through Gram Sabha to activities that communities have identified as important.
MPRLP identifies, tests and proves new development options which can be taken up and applied by the government of India to improve the lives of the poor.
MPRLP is particularly concerned with improving the lives of women through broadening their social and economic participation.
MPRLP works to strengthen the capacity of Gram Sabha to plan and manage resources, to ensure equitable distribution of funds, and to protect and promote the interests of the poor and vulnerable, paying particular attention to access to resources, information and services.
