Achievement of HICODEF - 2017-04-21

We have been implementing various software and hardware program activities to empower, capacitate and uplift the existing condition of poor and marginalized communities. We emphasize on holistic community development rather than focus on one issue because the rural poor communities have been marred socially, economically, politically, geographically and culturally. They also have lack of access on basic needs like education, health, food sufficiency, road, communication etc. Furthermore they don't have proper access on government services because of their settlement in rural and remote area where government have less presents.
