  1. Free resources or resources made available freely by IYA friend and well-wishers.
  2. Part-time resources which may be used if not for the entire day, then for a period of time daily, weekly or monthly without any cost to the organization.
  3.  Paid services
  4. Costs which may be reimbursed: For those mandated to raise bills for IYA, it is advised that clear accounts books are maintained

2. Dos and Don’ts for IYA workers
