Jangalmahal area around Belpahari, in West Bengal, is a victim of underdevelopment for long. This forested area at the border with Jharkhand is populated by various tribes who remained oppressed for very long. The Shabar community faced the most of discrimination as–once the British condemned them of making bow-heads for Santhal rebels during Hool Movement and banished them from their forest on which they depended solely for a livelihood—they got used to a very primitive form of life and have even forgotten how to assert their rights. They cannot even make use of the little educational and health-care infrastructure that drifted to them. Rampant illiteracy, violent poverty, dreadful alcoholicism, untreated diseases is the order with them.
We serve these marginalized and economically weaker sections, specially the Lodha and Khedia Shabar communities. We run free coaching centers for poor children in three villages, provide them with food. We also provide medical facilities to the villagers. We assist young and unemployed of the villages finding their livelihood by imparting vocational training.
