Capacity Building & Resource Mobilization
The third phase of Resource Mobilizatio (CBDRM-NER), officially commenced with the project Orientation Program (OP) on 27th August, 2015 in the registered head office at Joypur Kharghuli. The Director of NEDSSS, Zonal Manager of Caritas India & the Project Coordinators were present for the OP. It was found through the assessment that the first and second phase had been successfully executed with maximum achievement in the six targeted DSSSs.
Project Orientation and Workshop
After extending the project to all the 15 DSSSs another Project orientation and workshop was held on 4th & 5th February, 2016 at NEDSSS for the Directors and key staff of 15 DSSSs.
Objectives of the orientation program and workshop were
1. To elucidate about the project goals and activities
2. To clarify budgeted and non-budgeted activities
3. To share responsibilities and draw up time frame to
accomplish the desired goal
4. Determine specific project activities and its expected outcomes.
5. Identify emerging needs in systems &formulate
6. Create platforms for mutual sharing and learning to bring about solid impacts
7. Understanding of Resource mobilization as not only of accessing material resources but also tapping the rich Human potential.
Resource Mobilization will be a priority in all the DSSS, even in the absence of external financial support for a staff for it. Every DSSS will develop its RM policy for their respective organisations.
Phase III of the programme will consist more of handholding support rather than financial support. This will require concerted efforts and will involve challenging tasks by all. Yet it is essential and is the need of the hour. Hence a collective decision was taken to forge ahead taking decisive steps for resource mobilisation.
Training on Need Based Project Proposal
Training on formulation of ‘Need based project proposal’ was organized from 29th – 30th October 2015 at NEDSSS. The aim of the training was to enhance
partner's staff with skills to formulate need based projects. The resource person, Mr.Jaison Varghese

The methodology for imparting the skills included brain storming, group work and presentation. Participants
