Greetings from VOICE Trust.

Thank you all for your continued supports for us.

Sathyamangalam Tiger Reserve is a protected area and tiger reserve in the Eastern Ghats in the Erode District of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

The present study focuses on livelihood issues of Uraly tribes which is one of the thirty-six tribal communities in Tamil Nadu. The tribal populace is one of the most underprivileged communities in various social, economic and other factors in India. The problem of survival has become a major concern of tribal communities in the current scenario. Despite numerous initiatives for the welfare of these communities, tribal communities still stand at the lowest end of the country's socioeconomic ladder.

Sathyamangalam Population Facts:

Number of Households - 93994

Population - 327441

Male Population - 164469 (50.23%)

Female Population -162972 (49.77%)

Children Population - 29793

Area - 2271.88 km2

Population density/km - 2144

P Arun, a Class VIII student from the tribal hamlet of Onnakarai in Erode district is ready for school at 7.15am every day, but he never heads out alone. Arun waits for his friends to join him before beginning the arduous 6km trek through the forest road winding along the Western Ghats. The group reaches school at Kongadai village by 9am, just in time for class. “I have stopped walking alone after an elephant chased me once two years ago,” says Arun.

In the absence of proper public transportation, private van operators fleece villagers. “We have to pay 50 for a trip on the private van,” says S Gomathi. Coming from a family of daily wage labourers, Gomathi, or for that matter none of the students can afford the fare. The threat of elephants and bears students keeps away villagers from the roads in the evenings and early hours.

During our recent visit with PSR Trust to Sathyamangalam, we gave books and started evening tuitions for nearly 100 Children. This will encourage them to continue their studies and grow up in life. For first generation of school going children all these are new and their interest in learning is vast. Thank you for all the supports that you all give to encourage these Children. During our next visit we have planned to give footwear, because most of them don't have one. We are also conducting a medical camp for children. Thank you all for supporting us to help children with Nutrition and Education.
