Our programme is not only for marketing milk. It is a programme of socio-economic development. We are using dairy as an instrument of social change. Any farmer of any caste, any creed, any sex can become a member of the village co-operative society. Everybody's milk is put into one container so casteism is dissolved. The farmers are brought to the cattle feed plant. They realize that what is important is nutrition. The same applies in their own family, what type of nutritious food they should eat. When they come to the artificial insemination centre, where the bulls are kept, every farmer is shown under the microscope what sperm are and what the role of sperm is. We are teaching that this particular thing is responsible for birth, so why don't you think of family planning. We organize films. This is to bring awareness to the farmers that they can run the co-operatives, and do not need any assistance from outside to come and help.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a collaboration between UIA and Mankind 2000, started in 1972. It is the result of an ambitious effort to collect and present information on the problems with which humanity is confronted, as well as the challenges such problems pose to concept formation, values and development strategies. Problems included are those identified in international periodicals but especially in the documents of some 60,000 international non-profit organizations, profiled in the Yearbook of International Organizations.
The Encyclopedia includes problems which such groups choose to perceive and act upon, whether or not their existence is denied by others claiming greater expertise. Indeed such claims and counter-claims figure in many of the problem descriptions in order to reflect the often paralyzing dynamics of international debate. In the light of the interdependence demonstrated among world problems in every sector, emphasis is placed on the need for approaches which are sufficiently complex to encompass the factions, conflicts and rival worldviews that undermine collective initiative towards a promising future.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
