2.7 Understanding its limitations

 

BCT is very clear that its success is because of its close rapport it has established with the people concerned and that itself has been possible because of the manageable span of its operations. It resisted temptations to extend its area far and wide by recognising limitations of manpower and organisation.

BCT is conscious that in view of the paucity of good and successful voluntary organisations in the country, there is a tendency to overload the few with more and more programmes and responsibilities. BCT cautiously deals with the new demands that are being made increasingly on its scarce resources of manpower and organisation and guards itself against the danger of being led astray from its self-appointed tasks. It resisted temptations to work in far away places.

On the other hand, it helped seriously interested individuals to establish voluntary organisations on their own to serve in their chosen area. There are about 8 of such organisations in AP which have sprung from inspiration of BCT.
