https://www.linkedin.com/company/ceiempowers/?viewAsMember=true


There is urgent need to Supply Food and medical aid to at least 1500 Tribal & Rural Families of Raigad (Maharashtra). Most of these families are Below Poverty Line belonging to PVTG (Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Group) Tribe and they are affected by Shutdown due to Coronavirus Pandemic.
It is important to note that out of these tribal families who are not having Ration Card, Aadhar Card (or other Government Documents), etc hence they cannot avail of the Ration being supplied by the Government at the Ration/PDS outlets. They urgently require help from civil society for their survival.

The Tribes of Raigad villages (Maharashtra) are mostly Daily-Wage Manual Laborers, from more than a month their daily income is gone, due to Coronavirus pandemic and they are left in extreme poverty and deprivation.

Vulnerability of one group of these Tribal families is already further worsened by the fact that their village - was uprooted and destroyed in the 2019 floods. (CEI had provided Flood-Relief and Rehabilitation service to those Tribals last year -
https://milaap.org/fundraisers/support-tribals-displaced-by-flood-in-welatwadi-village-in-raigad-maharashtra ).

There are Extremely Poverty-Stricken tribal children from village of Khalapur town (Raigad District) for e.g. these are young children whose father Ram Waghmare recently passed away in an accident. These orphaned Tribal Children barely in their teens have to look after their aged grandfather and ailing mother.

These orphaned children belong to Katkari Tribe which is classified by Ministry of Tribal Affairs as PVTG i.e. Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Group (Only 3 tribes comes under PVTG category out of 47 tribal groups in Maharashtra)There are thousands of such families in extremely vulnerable situation, who are in urgent need of Food & Medical Aid especially in these unprecedented times where we are fighting against Coronavirus pandemic.

The Funds will be utilized in providing Food Package, basic Medical Kit for prevention of contracting Coronavirus (additionally, the logistics & administrative cost will be included for ensuring these provisions reach to the intended beneficiaries spread across more than 30 villages):


  • Every Single Food Package will have Ration for 1 month for 1 family consisting of Rice, Flour, Pulses, Salt, Sugar etc.
  • Medical Kit for prevention of contracting Coronavirus per family: Hand Sanitizer, Masks, Soap, Hand Wash and Lysol.
We will also collaborate with Local Administration to ensure that proper laws & regulations are followed in transportation of these provisions to the Rural and Tribal areas of Raigad (Maharashtra).

Dear Supporters,


Thank you for your Support to this Humanitarian Pan-India Endeavor of Ensuring Food-Aid, Medi-Care, Relief & Rehabilitation to sections of society terribly affected by the nation-wide lock-down & various natural calamities, ACROSS India.

Update #16:

1) #CEIReliefInitiatives - Inspiring Sadhana!

After the Death of Katkari tribal Ram Waghmare, his aged mother, his widow and his daughters are finding it difficult to survive in their remote tribal village when there is nobody to support them. They belong to Below Poverty Line group, without Ration card.

As they have lost their father Ram Waghmare who was field laborer, his young tribal daughters have to depend on temporary manual labor to survive and provide for their family. Raigad Lockdown has seen the labor work ceasing & no source of livelihood is left for them.

CEI provided food provision sufficient for 1 month for the orphan daughters (Gita & Nita), widow (Sita) & aged mother of late tribal Ram Waghmare ji. CEI is ensuring that the essential requirements of this destitute tribal family are met.




2) ▪ Jana ji looks after her children alone, as her husband is not here. She belongs to the Below Poverty line Tribal group from Dhamani village (Khalapur Tehsil, Raigad). In previous weeks CEI provided food provisions for 1 month for her family

▪ Due to CEI Horticulture & Kitchen Garden Initiative, tribal woman Manju ji is able to feed her small daughter especially in such times where tribals have nothing to eat.

CEI is ensuring that most vulnerable sections (orphans, widows, senior citizens) of tribals in Dhamani village get food and medical aid.




3) The Covid-19 Pandemic & associated lockdown has caused enormous socio-economic detriment & human losses to the tribal community pan India.
▪ BPL Katkari tribal Soma ji, used to work as laborer in agricultural fields, since the lockdown began, he has been wageless & is unable to provide for his children.



▪ BPL Tribal woman Sakhu ji is taking care of her children alone. Roof and walls of her hut were damaged in Cyclone Nisarga. Heavy rains are still lashing her remote tribal village in Sudhagad tehsil (Raigad, Maharashtra)
CEI provided a month’s worth of ration to Soma Ji, Sakhu Ji and their families. CEI has also started Relief, Rehabilitation, Reconstruction Work for victims of Cyclone Nisarga in Maharashtra.
