After Independence world got divided into 2 different worlds. One picked up the pace of change and one was left behind. One explored and one was tucked away in remote corners. But they connected because when one woke to a headline, the other was the headline! It’s weird how a community engaging in agriculture is starving to death. Kallu is a farmer. He has 4 acres of land and yet could not provide for his family.Farmers like Kallu migrate to seek work as a labourer. If Kallu had to be away, his children were to work in the fields by dropping out of their schools. But these are not the only problems these farmers face… Buying good quality seeds from the market is an expensive affair. So they turn to landlords. Our work with such people is from the root to the shoot. We have schooling programs for children as well as adults. So that they can at least have the basic skills to read and write enable them to meet their day to day needs. We impart knowledge to improve skills so that Kallu can make his land fertile. Farmers like Sunanda who have no land are provided with goats as a source of steady income. We enable people like Sitaram to set up shops so that they too can stand on their feet. By Creating awareness on key issues we link them to their privileges from the government. We train the Key people to strengthen the government’s existing work. We bridge the Gap between the government and the communities through networking. And make them speak for their rights.

Appreciating our work in the region, we were invited by the district authorities to monitor the MNREGA work in two Panchayats of Chikaldara block for a year in the Melghat region, Amravati District, Maharashtra. Empowering them to take leadership roles. And finally to ensure that they continue to work towards their progress by establishing ‘Korku Adivasi Sangathan’ (Korku Tribal Committee)
