Tribal communities of the NE are characterised by the contradictions and dilemmas of societies in rapid transition. While some sections of society and some regions have benefited from progress and the fast pace of change, a large number of these communities are disadvantaged and live-in situations of poverty, deprivation and denial of rights.
Attentive to the legitimate needs of the tribal communities of all our four states, and without being exclusive, we engage specially with the many tribal communities through awareness training, networking and meeting to enhance collaborative and participatory actions.
Over 49 Village Empowerment Committees (VEC) are formed among Adivasi communities of Assam. They actively participate in village development processes through village level Gram Shaba.
