    This fundraiser will benefit

    Itihas Diwakar Meshram

    from Gadchiroli, Maharashtra



I am Itihas Diwakar Meshram, a student and social worker  hailing from Gadchiroli district of Maharashtra, India. 

I have been invited to attend an international seminar in Italy to present my work relating to the struggles of the adivasi & particularly vulnerable tribal groups of Gadchiroli district—a prominent backward region. However, I'm short on funds to get there. 

Background & Story:

I am a post-graduate student of Sociology at Pune University. I also volunteer with Eklavya & Path Foundation—an organization committed to working with PVTG (Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups) and other tribal groups residing in Gadchiroli and Chandrapur districts of Maharashtra. Their work involves identifying human rights violations among the adivasis, using legal mechanisms to address such violations and educating them on their constitutional and legal rights. I contribute towards this organisation as a researcher and an educator. 

I have been invited to present my work with the Adivasis of Gadchiroli, at a seminar on Adivasi issues in contemporary India: identities, resistance and environment organized by the  “TOIndia Summer school” of the University of Turin, Department of Cultures, Politics and Society, Italy.

Although the University has been gracious enough to waive-off my stay related expenses, I am to responsible for the cost of travel, visa and food, which is amounting to Rs. 2,00,000/-. 

I am a student from a marginalized and economically weak background and am currently unable to afford this on my own. 

I believe it's important for me to attend the seminar and show my work before an international audience to bear witness to the the injustices meted out to the Adivasis of Gadchiroli district. 

It is also a huge opportunity for me to connect with scholars all around the world and gain support for this crucial work towards the welfare of some of the most vulnerable citizens of India.

I am thus in need of any and all financial assistance to be able to attend this Seminar. 

Do support, if you can.

I will be happy to answer any further questions.

Thank you for taking out the time to read this. I'm thankful for your generosity and assure you that I will find a way to pass on this kindness.
