Planning for Participatory Program (PPP)
SOPAN believes that all activities need to be planned with special consideration for the active participation of people in the planning, implementation, monitoring & evaluation of the project.
Human Right based approach
SOPAN activities are focused on respecting the inherent human rights of people, as reflected in international human rights instruments such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UHDR). It believes that it is worthless to initiate development projects unless people are made aware of their rights & duties and assess the needs of the people and citizens.
