Our Activities :
SCORE growth into a fully fledged development organization, covering over 45,000 people in 25 villages, is attributable to the sustained vision of a just and equitable society. Decentralization is the core component of this vision, as it allows beneficiary communities to use technological know-how and organizing capacities to develop according to the principles of self-governance. While our focus remains on decreasing the prevalence of water-borne illness and sustainably raising the water retention capacities of rural watersheds, SCORE gives us the flexibility to assist interventions in livelihood, prenatal and maternal health, credit networks and rights-based advocacy. These efforts allow us the resources to approach development holistically and to use our experience in the development sector to further link tribal communities with other non-governmental organizations, international aid projects and government development agencies.
