Earth Trust works on integrated development of 50 villages providing tribal families simple effective interventions using organic farming, traditional herbal knowledge, eco-preservation and education.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Traditional plants & herbs from which the tribals derive their nutrition as well as health solutions are disappearing, leading to loss of livelihood among tribals and forcing them to live undignified lives of poverty and hunger. Children move away to cities to try to earn a living which barely sustains them. Communities are degraded by poverty & ignorance. Spring sources are drying due to land abuse & 80% of grasslands which hold water in the rains and release them thru the year, are lost.

How will this project solve this problem?

It will train adults in organic eco-farming and children to nurture the eco-system. It gives tools & knowledge to women to benefit their communities. We can regenerate the forests with the tribals by enterprises linked to traditional knowledge.

Potential Long Term Impact

50 villages in Tribal South India get long-term benefits of nutritious food, hygiene and health and education of adults in eco-farming and children in eco-preservation. More will use traditional herbal medicines and supply from their enterprises
