Raised Remaining


The project aims at better life and livelihood of 113 irula tribal families in Kallamparai village in Aranthangi block of Pudukottai district, Tamil Nadu.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The original occupation of these people was rat and snake catching. Since the abolishing of snake catching by the Indian Govt, the community had to abandon their migratory lifestyle and make their living among the suspicious mainstream society. The community have settled down in the outskirts of various villages, trying to make their living in as daily laborer in the fields, bonded labour in rice mills and in brick kiln industries since they do not have education and relevant livelihood skills.

How will this project solve this problem?

"A place to call a home is the first step towards development of any community". By providing permanent house with infrastructure will facilitate the community to organize and be in a position to claims welfare schemes provided to citizens of India.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project envisions provision of "Home" to 113 irulas, which will give hope and needed thrust to enable them to work towards providing a better future to the next generation. It will also bring the Irrula communities plight to limelight.
