Community Empowerment

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.

  • Village communities Training on Goan Panchayat Development Plan (GPDP)
  • Over 500 village people are helped annually to avail social security documents such as National Food Security Card, Ration Card, Old Age Pension, Widow Pension, Housing and Job cards under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREG Act) in 60 villages of Assam under CEMP.
