Recently communication and visibility workshop was held on 21st-23rd December 2014 at Ranchi aimed at capacity building of the ground team in order to seek better results in terms of information dissemination of entitlements. The three days extensive agenda has been designed in a way to engage the team in a successful delivery of a well-rounded training program. This was first of its kind where the proper involvement of ground staff has taken place, resulted in a successful completion. It has also ensured that the team is clearer about the objectives, motive and the whole intervention of Soochna Seva. Apart from this it involved seeking inputs from the ground team regarding the Intelligence Search System, Mera App, Beneficiary Card, Directory of Schemes and Media Tools i.e. Video, Audio, Posters, Jingles, Photography, IEC material, etc. developed so far.
There were 3 broad themes of the workshop which are to be called as the key highlights i.e. Major & Effective Entitlements/Schemes, Modes, Mediums and Methodologies and Redressal Mechanism & RTI. Throwing lights to the 3 areas not only helped in ensuring effective implementation and proper management of the programme but it has also brought transparency and thereby credibility to the overall implementation at the ground. Each session was more interactive, each participant provided inputs/comments/suggestions and facilitator resolved the same meanwhile.
Soochna Seva looks forward to a successful and fulfilling new year 2015.
