Our Human Strength
From a small nucleus of professionals, the TBS grew into a band of workers dedicated to rural development, under a faith known as TBS bond. TBS has a twenty-one member General Body of people of social standing. The general body sets the policies for the organization on broad spectrum. The TBS has a Governing Board consisting of Eight members. The governing board is responsible for watch-out the development works by the organization under the guidance of the general body.
Mr. Maulik Sisodia; a management graduate from premiere institute of the country is taking care of TBS’s operations and management from May, 2009. He is attached with the organization as its Executive Director. He helped TBS in conducting many projects successfully.
Most of the TBS field activists are themselves members of the communities they are working in. They live in the villages and shared their joys and sorrows while providing unobtrusive assistance by facilitating the rural folk in actualizing their own potential.
TBS also counts on the strength of volunteers attached with its ideology. There are hundreds of unpaid village health workers and voluntary women organizers. TBS trains local villagers and employs them time to time. There are hundreds of individuals from different spheres of life who supports TBS in its state/ national level policy advocacy interventions.
