Expanding Reach
  • Inspired by DD’s approach and values, 25 partner NGOs, from Rajasthan as well as other states such as UP, Jharkhand, Bihar, Assam, Orissa and MP have started implementing a similar programme in their area with the financial support of Sir Dorabji Tata Trust.
  • DD has also organized dissemination workshop and capacity building trainings in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar to share our journey and learning with other organizations interested in partnering with us.
  • The report of the Working Group of 10th five year plan has validated the DD approach; it was endorsed by the Planning Commission and systematically incorporated in the Tenth Five Year Plan.
  • The consequent scheme prepared and implemented by central government's Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports coheres with the strategies and parameters of Doosra Dashak.
  • Working Group of 11th Five Year Plan (2007-2012) reaffirmed the DD approach and the Planning Commission recommended the central government to formulate distinct policy on adolescents. The approach has been further refined in the 12th five year plan. The 12th five year plan ; 2012-2017 mentions doosra dashak: “Doosra Dashak program, which is being implemented in Rajasthan focusing on rural illiterate adolescents has been able to successfully engage with this group through organization of longer duration residential camps, adopting integrated, holistic approach to adolescent learning combining the initial camps with ongoing continuing education opportunities through helping adolescents’ to form adolescent groups , organizing issues based training , engaging them in the exercises related to social mapping , associating them with Gyan Vigyan Kendras, libraries, Ikhavelos (learning centers) and offering them many opportunities on a regular basis to serve as peer educators as well as rural counselors to support their peers. The expansion of the Doosra Dashak approach in several states of north India by civil society groups working on adolescent issues is evidence of the success of a holistic programming approach for out of school adolescents.
