· Do a comprehensive documentation of the work being done in Bihar as part of the HBP
· Do a comparative study of HBP work in Tamil Nadu and Bihar to find the reasons underlying the gaps in the two states in terms of progress of the HBP
· Find ways in which HBP work in Bihar could make up lost ground – may be focus on a single village cluster and see if i can help with ongoing work to try and work through the common problems identified as hindrances to progress of the programme in the study
· Get a feel of readiness of local volunteers and local people to involve with issues such as (in areas where the HBP is ongoing and other areas of Bihar outside the HBP-BGVS fold) :
1- Governance - like level of functioning of the local government, transparency and accountability of the local government officials and political representatives etc.
2- Access to resources - like water, food -Public Distribution system (PDS), health, education
3- Access to information on various public issues like health, education, developmental works
