Through economic and social development initiatives , poor families are able to realize their overall development, leading ultimately toward sustainable communities and a healthier community. This is accomplished by identifying the most vulnerable families in targeted areas and providing them with financial assistance for six years to help begin and maintain an income generating livelihood, leading to eventual self-reliance. Involvement in sangamam or self help groups helps the individual obtains confidence and skills necessary for success. Over the past decades of service to the poor, COD plays an important role for the integral development of the marginalized and poor people. Thus having a tie up with Save Family Plan India, COD does many activities and bring the poor and needy people to the mainstream of the society.

Through this program each beneficiary family is getting a regular monthly assistance of Rs.950 to engage in one or other income generation projects for their economic self- reliance. For the smooth functioning of the project and to sustain proper communications with the beneficiaries about the implementation of the program regional meetings were conducted in each region. In this meeting Coordinator depicts the complete picture of the program to the beneficiaries. They also shared their experiences and doubt about the implementation and procedure of the project.

IGP is to be started with the support of local fund mobilization and it is to be started according to the interest of the beneficiaries. EDP training was given to the beneficiaries of the selected families. The purpose behind the training program was for the better and successful implementation of the program. The EDP trainings helped the participants to develop solid ideas about working as an Enterprise. This enhanced the ability of each participant to initiate for any enterprise by their own. The members had been trained on different fields like leadership development, production of goods, importance of quality, marketing, sustainability, etc. These trainings will also give light to certain income generation programs which were implemented successfully in the operational areas.

It resulted in the increased the number of IGPs, increase of the income of the families and increase of the economic and social well being of the families. The income from the IGP resulted to in reduce indebtedness, improving living conditions, reducing the burden on single parents such as widows as well as abandoned women.
