Unique problems need unique solutions
Given the nature of problems faced by the rural communities in Jharkhand, one could surmise that a traditional approach to development initiatives might not be the best way forward. An alternative had to be developed. And thus, P4 came into being.
The fundamental edifice of TVM is igniting initiatives at the grass root level through PUBLIC - PRIVATE - PEOPLE PARTNERSHIPS - P4 approach. Over the years, P4 has come to define an approach that increases community ownership, promotes participations, and encourages collaboration among various stake holders which at various times may include government agencies, corporate entities, worldwide NGOs, scientific institutions and financial establishments.
