People First based in Bodhgaya started its work in 1992 in the village of Piani, in Jharkhand India. Visiting the desperately poor village our founding members, Deepak Kumar and Nick Hansen were moved by the sight of a small child sitting on old sacking with a few school books outside the government village school waiting for a teacher who never came. A simple school was started and from that simple beginning People First was born. Now employing over 70 people (nearly all service providers) the Trust now works in Health Education, child protection and welfare, women's rights and poverty alleviation and education.
" In recent years PFECT have demonstrated a progression in their ability to manage grants responsibly and also their ability to absorb grants from other donor organisations. There is now in place a robust fiscal system with a large degree of transparency".
"PFECT have always worked within a sound and
well considered code of conduct embracing moral
and ethical considerations".
"That they have been able to do this and still function effectively in the area of their work is to their considerable credit. Strategies to address social need exist and are an important part of their ability to function effectively.
As an organisation run by local people I have always been impressed by their cultural sensitivity and bottom up approach".
