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 -

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).

1)  **CEI Rebuilding Lives – A Roof Above Every Head!**


Imagine you haven’t eaten for days, your mother is ill & your father disabled, and you wake up to a cyclone, no roof above your head, and little ration you had washed away..

This is the situation Katkari tribal Samir Pawar of Raigad, Maharashtra found himself in! Katkari tribals have been declared a ‘particularly vulnerable tribal group’ due to the absolute backwardness, poverty, illiteracy they live in.

The tent he used to live in was made of rags and could not withstand the brunt of the devastating Cyclone Nisarga. CEI has facilitated Reconstruction of his hut & has ensure tarpaulin sheet covering to protect it temporarily from torrential rainfall.

2) CEI gave training, market access to Tribal women to ensure Warli Painting and Art becomes a viable Entrepreneurship Project.


3) Ganesh ji worked as construction laborer. He belonged to Dhangar nomadic tribe and has been out of work since 2 months. He received adequate food provisions for 1 month by CEI Team!


4) Katkari tribal Vitthal ji is taking care of his daughter who is suffering from diabetes. He had lost his labor work in ongoing lockdown and didn't have ration left in his home. CEI ensured his family is provided with adequate food provisions for 1 month.


5) Tribal laborer Chandrakant ji used to work as agricultural laborer in rice fields. Since lockdown he has not received his daily wages. He received food  provisions adequate for 1 month from CEI for his entire family.


▪  Pintu ji from remote village of Vaave, belongs to Below Poverty Line, Particularly Vulnerable tribal group, he alone provides for his children. His hut was destroyed in #CycloneNisarga. CEI gave 1 month's food provisions to her family.



6) CEI #SaveAChild Initiative!
