We are fortune to join the communities today in what will go down in history as the greatest efforts in the history of our national development. From its establishment in 2054 (1997 AD), ignition of an idea drove us towards a tireless journey of social change bringing us all here today. We do not proudly claim that we have sustained in these years. Somewhere deep inside we are saddened by the need of our existence. We do not make business/ we are country men in the quest of dream, a dream of a healthy and progressive society. A dream of a future for our children and their children to be, and this is definitely possible with our efforts today. Our commitment in community development has been progressive and persistent since the establishment and the alleys have not always been a comfort. There were times when our efforts were misunderstood, our interventions were misled and the common outputs were misjudged. Even then we managed to stay strong in the times of crisis which was possible with the strong commitment of the communities to endeavor development form within. Issues of literacy, poverty, social stigma and ill intentions provoked by unemployment are dominant in our society and they prove to be hindrance as well as the challenges in our interventions. In this backdrop, our campaign prioritizes advocating and mainstreaming the issues of poverty, underprivileged, Dalit, Janajati and the least developed regions.
In this context of restructured federal state, our interventions are now more focused at grass root level. We will be prioritizing our interventions based upon the geographical scenario and need driven approach. Our hands are stretched out to support our fellow brothers and sister in need. Though our efforts was little, we are satisfied that we could contribute to the flood victims. As a civil society, our influences are limited and even then we are capable of producing huge impact in the lives of people. We aspire to leave no stone unturned.
All our prior activities, experiences, practices, learning, knowledge and challenges are the valued assets of ICDC. Our future endeavors will be guided, provoked and motivated with them. We would like to thank and appreciate all our foreign and national as well as the local partners along with all other cooperating and collaborating agencies for their tremendous help and support till the date and we anticipate similar efforts in our future endeavors.
