Process of Formation and Training to 200 unorganized youth: Vimukti Pothnal
Even in mere 12 months, a lot has been achieved in the project. One of the major activities unorganized youth project was to create opportunities for young people to connect to others, develop skills, and utilize those skills to contribute to their communities that, in turn, increase their ability to succeed. As with positive youth development, a community youth development orientation involves shifting away from just concentrating on problems toward concentrating on strengths, competencies, and engagement in self-development and community development. As such, community youth development is defined as purposely creating environments that provide constructive, affirmative, and encouraging relationships that are sustained over time with adults and peers, while concurrently providing an array of opportunities that enable youth to build their competencies, and become engaged as partners in their own development as well as the development of their communities. Our youth groups have slowly engaged together in creating a just and equitable society and demand for their entitlements.

Belwata Community leaders demanded the Government officials to install purifying water plant in the village: Vimukti Pothnal
On 30th of July Belwata Community leaders came together and demanded the concerned Government officials and submitted the memorandum to install purifying water plant in their village. The recent village development and under the Gram Panchayat Raj projects throughout the district villages there was a plant of implementing water Purification machinery. This new project is highly appreciable and wonderful one. It is a great initiative as well. But the fact is that our village is left out of having such a machinery. And we strongly condemn for ignoring to provide this system in our village. You are depriving an entire village and this will lead to a serious problem as well. The water that is received from the main source from Tunga Badhra has been utilized since past few years keeping in mind of preserving it for the purpose of irrigation, soaking for the increase of ground water, for drinking and for the cattle and for other purpose.
