Heather Arculeo, Co-Chair, PWN-USA-San Diego “Christie’s Place not only offered me services, but a sense of belonging, openness, acceptance, compassion, and understanding. I knew that I needed to be in a place like this, and vowed to help others so they wouldn’t feel trapped and isolated, as I once did. Now I am a full-time Retention in Care Peer Navigator at Christie’s Place.”


[Organizational Behavior Assignment


Building a Coalition Page 3group of people should be self motivated because they all will be required to proceed and stay in therural areas during the entire schedule of the campaign. The monetary benefits involved in the programare very few and the entire team will be away from the normal techno and developed sphere of life. Allthese factors would play a major role whilst choosing a team member for the program and this will bethe duty of drafting and recruitment committee to inform them about the expected life style during thecampaign.

6. Development Team

. The Director Asha Foundations

(hence forth Program Director)

will be overall responsible for the conduct and execution of the program. He would be supplemented by02 school principals and 02 educators from CFE as part of the development team.. Program Directorwould be responsible for the administration, management and smooth functioning of the program. Theaccounting of the finance will be maintained by Asha Foundations. Three groups would be created withfour teachers each under 01 principal as their group head.


Group One.

This group would be responsible for encouraging parents about benefits,importance and essence of education in present scenario and in future. They will primarily beresponsible to inspire them to inculcate into the habits of studies themselves and to send theirchildren regularly to school. This group will utilize street shows, motivational lectures, short movie inspirational clips to motivate parents and students towards education. The biggest challenge which this team may face is of creating faith in the minds of people, especially theparents and develop a confidence that education will ensure their offspring’s with a suitable jobin which could earn them a better life. In absence of such faith the parent would rather take hischild to work and earn pretty more for his family.


Group Two

. This group will be responsible for motivating and training para-teachersand teachers on quality tutoring. In present scenario deporting people from cities to rural areasis a major challenge, which this team would have to tackle by providing them better facilititiesand perks. The group would utilize the motivators like improved teaching aids, performancebased intensives, free accommodation, transportation and opportunities for higher studiesbased on time and performance based criteria.


Group Three

. This group will be responsible for sound infrastructure and conduciveenvironment. The major challenge would be to bring in these facilities at the sites. The groupwould have to be empowered with financial authorities for carrying out immediate result oriented changes. The group will carry out regular maintenance of class rooms, cleaning of toilets and conservancies of the school; in addition they will promote and forcefully implement fair and quality mid day meal programme.7.

Group Norms

. Program “Vidya” will comply with the following norms:-(a)



Social arrangement (d)

Resource allocationThe program is primarily looking at inspiring people towards studies and is also trying to inspire tutorsfor quality touting. This can be effective only when they follow the group norms of Performance andAppearance strictly. The group is going to lead face of a literate and develop personality in front of therural population, so they would be required to follow some specific dress code and behave differentlywhich is completely new for the target population and could impress and attract their attention. Thesegroup norms will help group in attaining group objective. The objective of the campaign has to be veryclear to every member in the group and so they should be ready to face the challenges.
