The Executive Committee meets every three months.
The day to day activities are carried out by some of the Committee members, staff members and other volunteers, that is, by about 25 persons.Some of the staff members are professional social workers and receive honorarium directly from Central Social Welfare Board or ZillaParishad. Others are trained as field workers and are paid a small honorarium and compensated for their travelling expenses by BMF Thane. With rising costs of living and transport charges it isbecoming difficult day by day for the organisation to getand retain sufficient staff.
It is heartening that the committed staff-members work and volunteers consistently and manage the increasing load of work efficiently.All workers receive relevant training from time to time for the enhancement of their capacity and they learn valuable lessons from experience.
