Strategic Goals

*Goals of the Sarvodaya Strategic Plan 2005 – 2010*

Our goals for the next Strategic Plan period are formulated within the 3 spheres of transformation through the awakening processes as described in the 500 Year Peace Action Plan of Sarvodaya.

h1. Consciousness Goal

Transformation of human consciousness through spiritual, moral & cultural awakening, and deepening societal commitment to non-violence.

h1. Economics Goal

Transformation of the society through the creation of a full engagement economic system that creates sustainable village economies which meet the 10 basic needs of all Sri Lankans through social, economic and technological empowerment.

h1. Power Goal

Transformation of the political system to establish community self governance (gram swaraj), participatory democracy and good governance through political and legal empowerment.

Thus our overarching goals for the next five years are grouped by “circle”. While each unit will emphasize one or two, more then the others, we should all understand how our work is interconnected and how our work impacts all aspects of this movement, of this awakening.
