Book Release Poverty Pockets Assessment in Patna
A report on Patna’s urban poverty, based on an assessment undertaken by Praxis in collaboration with Nidan, was published with support of WaterAid in March 2009. Praxis had earlier conducted a training of resident representatives of ten slums of Patna and members of Jhuggi Jhopri Sangharsh Morcha in January 2009, who were assisted by the staff of Praxis and Nidan in undertaking fieldwork for the assessment. The report was put together by Praxis based on synthesis of data generated under the assessment.
From Beneficiaries to Agents of Change was launched in Chennai on January 23rd in the presence of members of marginalised communities who can use the self-administrable tools in the book to assess their community mobilisation process. The book has been put together and validated by Praxis with inputs from several community-based organisations in Tamil Nadu and Manipur. It can be used for anybody wanting to assess community preparedness for vulnerability reduction.
