by Raleigh


The basic living conditions of the Kattunayaka and Paniya tribes leads to poor health and disease. Working together we will build 14 new homes which will ease their poverty and suffering.

The Government of India have identified the Kattunayakan and Paniyan people as ‘Primitive Tribal Groups’. The tribes suffer from poor health caused by their housing conditions. Water security, sanitation, malnutrition and poverty are daily challenges. Replacing the existing dwellings with the proposed replacement homes will directly benefit all people living in the communities. Families will experience an improvement in health and will have a higher standard of living.


Our young volunteers and the tribal communities will construct houses for all the families which will improve their health and standard of living. They will develop an understanding of each other’s cultures and awareness of development issues.

Long-Term Impact

The new homes will facilitate a healthier standard of living for the tribe whilst enabling them to retain their customs and cultural identity. The young participants will gain experience in cross cultural awareness and development issues.
