  • A dynamic programme, if it has to progress, will have to go deep into the soil of the community. So, the main challenge would be for total participation of the target groups and graded self-reliance, till all the programmes belong, managed and financed by the target communities.

  • It may be necessary to seek external funding for special Projects such as HIV/IDS, expensive equipment for the Eye Department and purchase of vehicles and hardware for the Administrator’s offices.

  • Establish, expand (scale up) and replicate the NIRPHAD concept of ‘linking low cost health care with socio-economic programmes’ in contiguous urban and rural villages. Especially for irrigation with Solar PVC Panels. NIRPHAD’s Neel Prabha was chosen to help out a SHG Lutheran Church programme in the Andamans.

  • Arrange the best possible training programmes for every grade of Staff, so that the quality of the programmes will improve.

  • Since it will take a decade to groom the new administration, BOM and senior staff should develop a succession plan not only for Administration but also for all the sections.

  • Improve on ‘best practices’ of Agriculture and Animal Husbandry through the ‘Lab to land Scheme’ of Pantnagar Agriculture and Mathura universities.

  • Implement Census-based Impact Oriented- (CBIO) Methodology in all the health programmes so that every child, and adult can receive equitable Primary health care.

  • In implementing socio-economic programmes all resources will be available for every section of the community, using the principles of fundamental human rights (according to millennium development goals) and continue to develop a caring and sharing society based on social justice to become an integral part of progressive general development.

  • Dissemination of information to national and health and development Organizations. The current Laval University (Que., Ca) Medical students, will be the third batch in an ongoing programme since the last three years. Emory University sent a M.D., in Pediatrics, one ophthalmology intern from the University iof Chicago, for exposure training as also two senior nurses from McMaster University, Canada. 58 expat University students participated in this programme from four continents since the last 8 years. An expansion of this programme into other disciplines of physiotherapy, nutrition and nursing care is being discussed with Laval University.

  • For 2010, implementation of Phase 3, of the ‘Child focused community development programme’ will begin the 7 year phase in March 2010.

  • Funding is being explored for ‘solar irrigation programme’ (feasibility study completed with Solar without Boundaries-NGO of Belgium).

  • Proposal for ‘child survival’ with Curamerica requires funding.

  • Community rehabilitation of ‘differently able’ proposal will be completed in March 2010 for collaboration with CBM and AusAid.

  • In the pipe line:

    1. HCDI-phase 3 - for child focused comunity development porgramme
    2. Progammes with Care-IFH - supported by Gates Foundation
    3. District Mathura Programme - sponsored by Development International fInancial Department Agency, UK
