French NGO ACTED, under the aegis of the European Union (EU), has started a four year long intervention in the North East to improve access to information of public schemes in backward districts of the region.
The ACTED-EU will work in five states and seven districts of Assam and will partner four other organizations to implement this project, a release issued here today said.
The Project aims to make beneficiaries aware of ten central government schemes through a variety of innovative methods to enhance development and also make administration more accountable.
The five states where the project would be implemented are Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Nagaland and Mizoram while the selected districts are Cachar and Goalpara (Assam), Chandel and Churachandpur (Manipur), Ri-Bhoi(Meghalaya), Wokha (Nagaland), Lunglei (Mizoram).
The four other partners are Public Affairs Centre (PAC), Nanda Talukdar Foundation (NTF), North East Development Foundation (NEDF) and North East India Committee On Relief and Development (NEICORD).
