Quality Circle or Samasya Samadhan Samuh (SSS)

Addressing is one of, if not the most important aspect of any development initiative. Which is why, one of the very first measures undertaken by KGVK in the region was to develop a system of Quality Circles. People of the community were encouraged to work in teams and collectively arrive at best possible solutions that would be of benefit to the entire community.

Over the years, the idea of Quality Circles has evolved. Now known as ‘Samasya Samadhan Samuh’ (Problem Solving Group), it is being effectively used to identify problems and implement interventions in a timely, efficient, and effective fashion by the people themselves. As illustrated here, community ownership has indeed come to define the unique model of sustainable development that KGVK has propagated through TVM.
