The field of development is very vast and never-ending and hence there is an increasing need to involve more and more persons in this work. It is also our philosophy that, instead of getting totally involved in running our own activities, work should be oriented towards giving more and more responsibilities to people themselves, building their capacities to handle development issues. This would enable us to expand our work so as to cover more and more people in the change process. With the above philosophy in mind, from 1988. SJSM has promoted 11 voluntary organisation in Satara and Raigad district and created a network of like minded individuals committed to rural development.
