- Who We Are -

In 1978 Guy Poitevin (anthropologist) and Hema Rairkar (economist) founded the association V.C.D.A (Village Community Development Association) in 1978. The project VCDM has been launched under VCDA. VCDM is a farmer movement working for a holistic rural community development. We use the model where the village residents can identify the socio-economic problems in their villages and find solutions collectively to these problems and act together to resolve them. This process cannot take place without our « social-workers ” whom we call animators. An animator is a person from a rural area who facilitates education, awareness and has will to identify and resolve the socio-economic problems in a village community.

We work in the field of rural child education, empowerment of women, skills development and capacity building, village governance and basic facilities, collective counselling for awareness building and resolution of local problems, environmental issues. Please check our projects for more information.
