development of rural poor tribal community in Mahakoushal region of Madhya
Pradesh state, the area where tribals are in majority, natural resources are
available in quantity, but exploitation, bureaucratic hurdles and corruption is high.
After looking and experiencing the situation the founder members decided to work
for the people with motto of Rights in Dignity.
The area has been chosen to work because of poor health and sanitation facilities,
literacy is very much low, no proper transport and communication facilities
available. IMR is more than 90 and MMR is around 360, which is high than national
data. We have start working on women and child health, women rights and
livelihood. After our working experience and need of local area we start working on
conservation related issues and trying to integrate livelihood and conservations. In
past 10 years organization has been worked with different organization i.e. CARE,
DFID, UNDP, SDTT on various issues. In 2005 the executive committee of the
organization decided and prioritized issues of working in the area. As per decision
