The three year long project, known as Bassi Pathhana Collaborative Community Development Project (BP-CCDP), will see the three organizations come together and improve the standard of living in the villages which they hope will turn into model villages for the rest of the country to follow.

Residents of the nine villages, which include Balara, Damheri, Fatehgarh Niuwan, Salar Majra, Majri, Jallowal, Lohar Majra Kalan, Bagh Siknader and Ferozepur, will be educated about the basic issues affecting them and taught how to become self reliant.

Speaking at a press conference, University of Utah's Dr Steve Adler said, "The objective of BP-CCDP is based on the principles of collaborative community development with a focus on long term solutions that promote community self reliance."
