ARAVALI Development Feature Services -
Capacity building of small of grass root level NGOs has been a
priority area for ARAVALI. We have observed that many voluntary
organisations do not get information on government policy,
programmes, government orders, training programmes, information
about donor agencies, etc.
Many partner organisations expressed the need of the information
support from ARAVALI. We started ‘ARAVALI Development Feature
Service – ADFS’ in year 1999. The basic idea behind ADFS is
to disseminate/ share the important information/ experiences/
learning, which is relevant for the organisational works of VAs
and other stakeholders. Through ADFS, ARAVALI attempts to reduce
the transaction cost of information exchange among the VAs, the
government, and the donor agencies.
The information circulated in ADFS is
Guidelines of the Government Programmes or changes if any in the
Upcoming projects of the government as well as other donor
About training programmes – calendars of the organisations
conducting the training programmes.
Contact persons, names and addresses of various actors in
development Innovations in development
Other useful information in the context of development scenario
ADFS is sent to around 325 organisations, institutes, and
individuals, working in the field of development, every month.
It has also changed with the time. Now it is more structured and
formatted. Now the subscribers are paying a token amount of Rs.
100/- a year. We have also started sending ADFS electronically
to those who have e-mail connection.
Information has today, become a survival tool for both small and
large organizations. Hence ARAVALI’s information support is
available to all credible and willing organizations working in
Rajasthan. Through the ARAVALI Development Feature Service (ADFS),
ARAVALI attempts to reduce the transaction cost of such
information exchange among the NGOs, the Government and the
Donor agencies. Useful information, articles, announcements and
government resolutions related to the development sector are
regularly compiled, updated and is being currently supplied to
more than a hundred VAs in the state, under ADFS.

regular two page publication on community based best practices
on Natural Resource Management and Livelihood Enhancement. It
does not have a fixed periodicity but so far 44 issues have been
published. It is widely circulated among government and
Voluntary Agencies (VAs). Given the response, we have decided to
