Elected Women Leadership in Panchayat
Panchayats are first and most important institutions of governance. In last 20 years, lots of changes have come in the panchayats the most important is, equal participation of women in Panchayat. 73rd and 74th constitutional amendment gives big opportunity to all men and women who are willing to bring change in their own community. We all have seen that there are many women panch and sarpanch who worked very well in the panchayat and continue working. But, this is also true that due to different causes and pressures, they have been driven by men. They are elected representatives but unable to do what they think. Most important thing is lack of self-confidence, knowledge and information. Women representativeshavea lot of strength and ambition to do well for their community, they need proper guidance, motivation, information and support.

Community Based Management of Malnutrition:
The concept of community based management comes forward with our working experiences and many discussions at the community. NRC (Nutrition Rehabilitation Centre) only could not work to end malnutrition, this is good to treat SAM child with illness. Our experiences say child could be treat at the community with proper care and adoption of good health behavior. There is need to work more and more with community on health behaviors, especially new born child, child under 5, pregnant and lactating women. Our traditional food practices and available local food grain is good for nutrition. Need to work with community and keep Patience, the changes taking time. Only field level health and nutrition service providers could not work, there is need of community contribution. CDC works on CBMM targeting 19 Angnawadi centre's, with the technical support of Vikas Samvad Samiti and CRY. Some good changes come with this intervention. Detail finds in given reports and stories. There is some report of an small intervention with SDTT.
