For Village Development Programme, you need to understand the layers of poverty, system and culture of the village and try to understand community as much as you can. For achieving the goal, you need to plan a programme for whole community of the village; neither specific group nor specific category and try to focus on employment generation programme than income generation programme”  Including, he told, “Also, you need to understand the causes of poverty like lack of understanding, resources and failure of system.” This apart, Bhatt focused on behavioral change, and said “as a social worker, we need to change our attitude of work and look forward from charity to empowerment of people.” 

Next day, Javed Alam, Senior Researcher CBGA talked about different government schemes which provide financial support to the NGOs for implementing rural development programmes. He said that benefits of government schemes such as CAPART, Integrated Rural development Programme, Swarn jayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojana, MGNREGA, Indira Awas Yojana etc. do not reach the poor and the needy because of unsuccessful implementing strategies.
