Story

The forests in and around Kabini,H.D.Kote, Mysore has been the abode of many Adivasis : Betta Kurubas & Jenu Kurubas for a long time now. Pipal Tree, a non profit trust based in Bengaluru, has been working with them ever since their households were displaced due to the Kabini dam project. We would like to take this long standing relationship to another level by enabling avenues of sustainable livelihood for them so there is a great improvement in their quality of life and they can afford all basic amenities without having to migrate for income or depend on something that is random or unsustainable.
This is a project that is very close to our heart and we want to ensure this brings about a sense of ownership and pride among our Adivasis as well as ofcourse a healthy income on a monthly basis. We have laid a foundation and need your help to get the ball rolling. The funds raised here will be primarily used for operational costs for the first three months which includes:
1. Monthly stipends and training expenses for 38 Adivasi Men and Women spread across 3 avenues:
a.) Herbal  Health & Beauty products group
b.) Bamboo & Straw Artisans
c.) Lantana furniture group

We are hoping to get the first phase of the project started by the 1st week of July and looking forward to raise the necessary funds by then.
We all would be ever so grateful for every contribution and you can be sure that will go a long way in the betterment of the lives of our Adivasis. So request you to be as generous as possible. Together, we can empower them and fulfill their hope of a better tomorrow.
Love & Gratitude,
