A Review Meeting of the program was held at KROSS Resource Centre, Bengaluru on 7th December, 2017 in which participants from the Diocesan Social Service Societies participated.

The meeting began with a prayer song led by Ms Padmavati, Coordinator, MSSS, Bhadravthi. Ms Maria Christina, Project Officer, SAMRUDI welcomed the Director, KROSS, the participants and the KROSS Staff.

The Diocesan Coordinators presented their reports, which were deliberated upon and suggestions and feedback given for better implementation of the program.

Rev. Fr. Sebastian Fernandes, Director, KROSS interacted with the group reminding them of our responsibility in reaching out to the poorest of the poor so that they not only have economic benefit but are able to hold their head high in the society.

An action plan for the next 6 months was prepared and the Director, KROSS made the participants aware that it is just not enough to achieve a target, but we have to make a conscious effort to follow up and guide the women who take up income generating activity so that through a small loan they are able to make both ends meet besides repaying the loan taken which is very important as this amount repaid can be revolved to other needy women in the self-help groups.

Mr. Arulappa, BDDS, Ballari moderated the session and proposed the vote of thanks. Finally Ms Maria Christina thanked everyone once again.
