Enabling the tribal population to restore land and practice traditional agricultural practices will improve food security and economic conditions in the district of Deogarh.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The three target villages of the Deogarh district are remote and difficult to access. The tribal community of this region is near starvation, with many migrating to the neighboring district for food and work in the thermal plant.
How will this project solve this problem?
Training women for land development through bio-farming and indigenous farming methods, developing grain and seed banks, lobbying for land titles, and leveling wastelands using sustainable and organic methods.
Potential Long Term Impact
Tribal women can maintain their indigenous cultural identity while they confront the changing market economy. Land titles in the names of women will also provide them with greater social and economic security and insure them against exploitation.
