Mission/Vision
MANAVLOK aims to solve the socio-economical problems of the community and achieve a better life for them. It believes that collective local leadership plays an essential role in mobilizing the local resources and making their best use. It does not entertain the welfare approach of given aid. It believes in providing the means for development rather than dolling out money to the poor.
 
Background
Dr.D. S. Lohiya laid the foundation of a voluntary organisation when he was studying in an Ayurvedic college in Nanded. Since 1962, he has been actively involved in social activities like immunization, organizing healthy child competitions, building a cultural group to generate awareness among the people through entertainment. His close association with common people, suffering masses, marginal farmers, landless labours, traditional village artisans helped him in understanding their problems thoroughly determined to make a difference to the society and to work for the upliftment of the masses.The philosophy of the organisation is reflected in its name: Manavlok, which is the shortened form of Marathwada Navnirman Lokayat, where Navnirman means Creation and Lokayat, denotes Peoples opinion. Manavlok thus symbolizes a new idea or an experiment in rural development, whereby villagers themselves are the focus of action and control. Manavlok aims to solve the socio-economical problems of the community and achieve a better life for them.
 
Aniket has 25 years experiences in advanced farming. He was the Chairman of a sugar factory and currently works as secretary of Manavlok for the last three years. He focused on the upliftment of socio-economic of the rural-poor by supporting the poor farmers in agricultural technologies implementing successful experiments of water conservation methodology for dry land agriculture farms. He bought basic agricultural technology machines for the demonstration of Farm Mechanization in a 250 hector area in Paleskheda village adopted for the purpose of showing farmers to minimise agriculture expenditure and yield more crops by an end-to-end use of agriculture technology. He framed a holistic approach to rural development and implementing several programs like Health (NRHM), empowerment through Self Help Groups (women group, farmers group, and aged group), Human Rights Aids (Domestic Violence and Children Protection Issues), Welfare Services (Relief Programs), Advocacy (Janshayog), and need-based awareness.

 Empowering the women and elderly
Before this initiative by Manavlok, the old age people in these rural villages were facing problems regarding daily food needs. Hence their health was constantly deteriorating and they were unable to meet their daily needs because of belonging to economically weaker sections. The program is implemented in 5 villages. A local SHG is responsible for the implementation of the program in each village- a group of three women run the centre and serve 2 meals to the elderly beneficiaries in the village- the first meal is served at 10.00 AM and the second one is served at 6.00 PM. Food served includes dal, chawal, roti, and sabzi. The SHG is paid by Manavlok at the end of every month based on the number of meals served- they're paid Rs. 20 per meal (Roughly amounting to Rs. 1200 per person per month) The beneficiaries are expected to pay about Rs. 200 per month. So the cost borne by the ngo is essentially Rs. 1000 per person per month. The old people have started regaining strength and have no stress about trying to eat good meals everyday. They have become happier, more hopeful and positive towards life irrespective of their ignorant children. Two meals a day is all they need to regain their strength back, physically and emotionally.
 
 Sustainability through agriculture
Bhimrao Devkate is a marginal farmer from Bardapur village from Ambajogai Block. He have total 4.5 acres of farm land. As this region falls under drought prone area, the availability of water for crops is very less. It is very difficult for any farmer to earn sufficient farm income if he is fully dependent on rain water. He has three children. His whole expenditure was dependent on farm incomes. As he was surrounded by so many outflows like children education, day to day activities he was unable to buy high quality of seeds and fertilizers at one time investment. It affected on his overall incomes. When we asked him about his experience, he said, “Manavlok is a supporting hand for poor and marginal farmers like me. Manavlok provides high quality of seed and fertilizers with a very low interest rate and also the installments are after every six months, so a farmer does not need to worry about refund of that loan. I am benefitting through Manavlok since last 7-8 years. For this year I already made a demand for DAP fertilizer of IFFCO Company. Because of Manavlok, I can test every fertilizer model in my farm and do not need worry about its rates.” Someone referred him to join self-help groups running through Manavlok; he became member of one of the SHG group. When he became member, he became eligible for getting all the benefits provided by Manavlok to poor and marginal farmers. Through Manavlok he obtained high quality of seed and fertilizers in sufficient amount for his farm on loan basis. This has affected on his crop productivity and off course a huge amount of rupees was divided into very small and affordable installments.

It affected on her overall incomes. She is now extremely confident and independent. She is a part of more than 2 SHGs with Manavlok. Her friends advised her to join self-help groups running through Manavlok. Through Manavlok she obtained high quality of seed and fertilizers in sufficient amount for her farm on loan basis.

 You go, Woman!
It has been observed that single women are easily exploited in the society. The low educational status, early marriages, patriarchal society, limited control on property etc. make them unprivileged from all settings of life. This leads to being trapped in the vicious circle of poverty and helplessness. And it overall decreases the livelihood status of single women. The training occurs in 2 six month long batches. Some of their trainees come back to join as trainers as well. After the completion of the course, they also receive a sewing machine to start their business. After identifying these needy women, our project helped the women in increasing their livelihood status in the form of regular income from the skill training provided to them. The skill training has made them stable and comfortable to concentrate in their regular activities with more confidence.
 
 Helping women to earn livelihood
It has been observed that landless single women faces very critical problems in the society. When it comes to their regular family expenditure, their whole earning is dependent on the small business they run. When these women meet financial problem, they get pushed towards private money lenders. The interest rate of private money lenders is very high as it becomes very difficult to retain their previous livelihood status. Once the beneficiaries are finalised, Manavlok sends cheques worth Rs. 20,000 per beneficiary to the SHG, which then passes the cheques along to the beneficiaries- the beneficiaries then go to the local Ambejogai market to purchase livestock/poultry of their choice. The cost is usually more than the 20000 given, so they supplement it with their own savings/loans. Our project helped them in increasing their livelihood status in the form of regular income from direct economical help to expand or form a new small business like poultry. This makes them stable and comfortable to concentrate in her regular activities with more confidence.
