Tribal Development Program

The objective of the project to develop and implement a replicable model that ensures household food security and improves livelihood opportunities and overall quality of life of the tribal population based on sustainable and equitable use of natural resources.

We focus through this program to empower the grass root tribal association and user’s groups including women and other marginal groups, so that they would become more capable of planning, implementing and managing their own development and in negotiating with relevant authorities to harness the necessary resources.

1) Empowerment of Children/Persons with Disability:

The organization provides all information about disability and it’s solution to children/persons who live in tribal area. We also provide information related to services provided by Government, help them issuing their disability certificate, Bus/Railway pass and pension. We distribute aids and appliances (like wheel chairs & walking aids, hearing and vision aids, tri-cycles communication aids, study material, clothes etc.) through Health Camps.

2) Minority Empowerment:

Constitution of India has bestowed the fundamental rights to its people to live with peace and harmony keeping in view the secularism of the country. Since the inception of Indian Constitution “Unity in diversity” has been the mantra in Indian context of secularism. But, a large number of communities, so called “Minority groups” are still ignored and being isolated in major affairs of national issues and in some cases forced behind in getting similar opportunities to live as citizen. The organization has initiated a program for the empowerment of this minority community in Solapur and Pune districts.

It is said that Youth is future of country. So the organization focuses on youth education, leadership and advocacy to facilitate greater understanding among teenagers and young adults about ongoing issues and concerns of their area.

We provide to youth vocational and technical education to opt alternative sustainable livelihood options and help them by supporting small grants to make their life bright.
