Overall Development of Tribal Communities
  • Crisis: The tribal community has always been subjected to isolation, displacement and exploitation. Often, they don't have access to schools, medical facilities or basic nutrition. Thus, Nisarga Foundation aims at their holistic growth, along with empowerment of women and preservation of children's rights.
  • Programs: i) NCLP School: This program rehabilitates children who have been victims of child labor or are dropouts and are integrated into mainstream education. ii) Childline Project: Childline 1098 is a 24-hour helpline that rescues children in difficult situations, and has been implemented in the taluk to raise awareness about through open houses, youth committees, SHGs, and by educating schools, panchayats etc. iii) Spirulina Nutrition Programme: Spirulina is a nutritional capsule, which is helpful in boosting the growth of malnourished children, and pregnant women. People of the district are provided with nutritional supplements, food and health services. iv) Network activities: Nisarga Foundation is actively involved are Village Forest Rights Committee (VFRC), SHG Federation, Thaluk Adivasi Grama Sabha Vedike, Adivasi Solidarity Council and Adivasi National Front.
