Micro-Planning is a participant- wise evaluation and project improvement is done on 13 Parameters. It is a system of 4-point grading of each adolescent laid down on the basis of indicators which made an assessment of his /her learning; adoption of the learning in personal life; and his /her commitment to extend the benefits to peers and the community.
Assessment of adolescents is done when they join the initial training programme (which serves as the benchmark), after the training course and every 6 months thereafter. Data collected through this process is collated and analyzed. Further planning for education, training and other development inputs are to be undertaken on the basis of the collated data and an action plan for implementation prepared.
Micro-planning is accepted as a critical process for implementation of Doosra Dashak. Through this technique we would be able to track the growth of every ‘participant’ of DD. The process has the following elements:
· A set of 13 parameters as ingredients for education and empowerment of adolescents.
· A system of 4-point grading of each adolescent on the basis of indicators which makes an assessment of
- his /her learning;
- adoption of the learning in personal life; and
- his /her commitment to extend the benefits to peers and the community.
This system has worked satisfactorily. The emerging data is supposed to provide a base for making a plan for different activities.
Micro-planning work at the cluster /village level
- Organization of 2-day training of all persons who would be engaged in M-P;
- Field team interviews the ‘participants’ and head of his /her family, which is often done in workshop mode;
- Conducting Micro-planning workshops in Ikhvelos, Science Centres, schools, etc.;
- Where it is not possible for a ‘participant’ or his /her family to come to a workshop the field team visits his /her home and ascertains data;
- Necessary totals are done and information sent to the block level.
Micro-planning work at the block level
- preparation of village-wise files of Micro-planning;
- analysis of data received from clusters;
