    Women of sunderbans

    from Kolkata, West Bengal

Rural Women Empowerment: This is the main focus area of RBRF as it has already been covered more than 1000 remote villages of West Bengal, especially at Sundarbans, Jungle Mahal, and Duars. Livestock training, Farming support, and market linkage to the women are the main objective of this division.

Some 1700 Fisher Women of Indian Sundarban are leading a miserable life to manage their daily needs. They are compelled to capture fish and crabs on the densely marshy rivulets and channels that are located in close proximity to the Sundarban Tiger Reserve (STR).

As ill-fate as the women are often killed by Tigers or fetched by the Crocodiles! RBRF the first, projecting their inexplicable misery which is a crucial social disparity. Many of them are suffering from several diseases, perhaps due to the submerged condition in saline water for several hours yet not even earning Rs.50/60 a day! Observing the ground reality, the organization has initiated the project FIELD (Fisherwomen Identification and empowerment by Livestock Development) at Gosaba Block.

The main objective of the project is to provide site-specific alternative livelihoods to the FWS at the internationally famous World Heritage Site! RBRF approaches the responsible companies or individuals to extend their donation and all possible support towards this humanitarian as well as ecological conservation issue to protect the land and people of Indian Sundarbans.
