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.

Solution

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.

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.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
