Chennai, today!

POPE silver jubilee - October 2012

POPE (People Organisation for lanning and Education) was started to organisze Dalits, educate Dalits, and liberate Dalits. In partnership with Dalits, the Dalits voice was focused on ensuring Dalit rights. In eighties, talking for the rights of Dalits was a revolution. The revolutionary seed was planted and now that has become a big tree. Not only Dalits, even Tribals were able to demand their rights for their sustainable development. Over a period of time, POPE was able to develop replicable development models such as campaign model, legal suasion model, negociation model, development model, community education modek, Human relations model, integrated develoment mode, sectoral and inter secotral development model, team approach model etc. Such models have to be analysed in the class room as a curriculum for social work students. Quater Century old NGO, as an youth NGO is now an accepted NGO by people for their right based sustainable livehood. As an expression of our faith in marginalized people, we have developed out reach activities among tribal community also in Jawadhi hills during the Silver Jubilee year.


Jesus Christ the liberator is my roe model and my role model and my inspiring spirit. He has released the bondages of oppressed and advocated for the needy people. He healed the sick, fed the people of hunger, and speaking for the rights of the marginalized. He identified himself with the outlaws and alienated people. He has been my strength and spirit to continue this Mission in action for the last 25 years. The same living spirit is with me o lead for the next quarter. In the Indian context, Dr. Ambedkar was emerged as a role model for the Dalit liberation. His triple principles of Organize Dalits, Educate Dalits and Liberate Dalits for the empowerment of Dalits community is a guiding principle for me to plan, implement and co-ordinate the NGO activities and movement activities.


Over the years, I realized that it is difficult to continue as an NGO of strengthening the voices of vulnerable and organize the voiceless, powerless and assetless poor, oppressed and needy community.


But we made it possible, to enjoy this field and to continue successfully with the support of volunteers and friends.


I take this opportunity to thank my community, who have provided knowledge and wisdom to plan, implement co-ordinate and monitor the activities. I express my heartfelt thanks to all the contributors, associates, friends, donors, board members, staff and beneficiaries for their valuable contribution extended over the last 25 years. We acknowledge with gratitude for those people who were with us in the struggle of sleepless nights for the empowerment of the oppressed community. I also take this opportunity to thank the Souvenir committee to bring out the Silver Jubilee Souvenir.
