Learning Document Series 1-5 contains five development alternatives. The first one Putting the Poorest First tries to expose the process of addressing the hardcore poor as well as the areas that need further attention to addressing the hardcore poor. The second alternative is Polli-Mela – considered as an effective and interactive extension methodology for disseminating information and sharing experiences on prevention of domestic violence. The next one Partnership with Union Parishad relates prevention of domestic violence and other violence against women. The fourth one, Social Change Agents, argues that building the adolescents as social change agent has been the proven strategy for building future leaders of society for women- and girl-friendly environment and development. The last alternative is Hanging Garden that helps people survive and create voice against anti-people interventions.
