PHILOSOPHY BEHIND CHANGE INDIA PROGRAMME

India and the world are committed to address severe poverty issues in its varied dimensions and forms through Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) adopted by United Nations (UN). The MDGs offer appropriate for development programmes to improve socio-economic conditions in the country in conjunction with gender equality, better education and environmental sustainability.

The first MDG of ‘Eradication of Poverty and Hunger’ is critical for success. There is a need toportion out resources to social programs for alleviating poverty and improving health to attain this end. Achieving MDGs will have to be a shared responsibility of both public and private sector. Realizing this obligation, the ‘Change India Programme’ has been initiated by DBMG Foundation to contribute in this worldwide effort of poverty alleviation.

However, in the recent years poverty in India has been on retreat and several studies have indicated it. According to one WB Report “it is very much possible to move large amounts of people into better living standards. The research shares that in the last 30 years, over 700 million people were lifted out of extreme poverty, 527 million in the past decade. ”To put simply, the“pace of improvement has been accelerating. ”

Hence the time has come to move beyond and focus on living standard and empowerment. Research shows that people need to not only move merely above the poverty line, but to prosper two-three times as much as they currently are to officially break the cycle of poverty and be “Empowered”. Mckensey Global Institute in this context has developed eight indicators of measuring living standards. It has also developed ‘empowerment line’ which is well above poverty line adopted by Indian government to measure poverty. DBMGF has now adopted this framework and committed itself for all round empowerment of the people in Dhule district.
