The organization’s success in this regard, owes its vision of alternative development strategy while in significant ways, stands apart from the mainstream official development paradigm in top-down, overly centralized, male dominated and measured largely in terms of monolithic economic growth. It's alternative development, is particularly built upon effective participation of the poor, poor children in development, gender equality, social justice, productive and sustainable natural resource management and the protection and enhancement of environmental quality. The proposed organization's primary concern is to ensure an equitable distribution of the development benefits among the poor and women community who have always work hard but have always been side-line onlookers of the mainstream development drama. It endeavors to bring the people, the real actors in development now hedged out on the margin to the center.
