Our Experience And Interest In The Four PCIA Central Focus Areas
Aid Organization has experienced a lot of social & cultural barriers while implementing these projects. People are habituated to old cultural norms. It is difficult to break certain practices. Aid Organization is working to make the user comfortable with the new technologies. Aid Organization is creating a belief about the importance of clean technologies such as ICS & Biogas, Biomass and Solar.
Aid Organization has a marketing policy of its own. Aid Organization is making its position with ICS and Solar among beneficiaries, giving them incentives, taking minimum contribution for ownership, giving them real life examples of the benefits of ICS and Solar etc.
Rural people usually place less importance on designing the kitchen.
Aid Organization monitors all of its projects with field level manpower.
