NGO Profile :
Agragamee was instituted to promote aspects of tribal development and to adopt an integrated approach to help tribal communities mobilise for self-sustainability. They look to build an institutional base for training tribal youth as well as young educated professionals. Agragamee has been engaged in people-centred, culturally sensitive and ecologically balanced sustainable development of remote tribal communities in Odisha for over two decades.

Their activities in 2013-14 were:

  • Progressive Education in Remote Tribal Regions: Agragamee’s primary education programme seeks to develop a model of qualitative education for tribal children who are unable to access primary education for a variety of reasons. The schools have had significant interactions with other schools in the locality, to give a wide exposure to the children.
  • Strengthening Adivasi self-governance: This programme was taken up by Agragamee in collaboration with FARR and the support of Christian Aid from 2012 to 2014. The main objective of the Joint Programme was to improve Tribal local self-governance and empowerment in 12 tribal-dominated districts of Odisha.
  • Vocational Education & Training for Youth Entrepreneurship Development: In order to help youngsters, Agragamee began a programme for Vocational Education & Training for the unorganized rural sector. The focus was on creating young paraprofessionals and ‘Ecopreneurs’ skilled in natural resource based livelihoods and creation of multi-stakeholder linkages so that agriculture became economically remunerative, technologically appropriate, and ecologically sustainable. Agragamee has conducted seven training sessions during FY14 with 194 trainees from 52 villages in 5 districts. During the year, a training manual on ‘Nursery Raising and Management’ was published.

Agragamee has received donations from HIVOS (Netherlands), CAPART (Indian Ministry of Rural Development), UNICEF (Odisha), Oxfam (U.K.), and other international funding agencies, in the past.
