The onset of the COVID-19 in India accompanied by the nationwide lockdown has disproportionally affected the people of India. The Mayurbhanj district of Odisha is home to a predominantly tribal population. Heavy dependence on agriculture and inconsistent channels of income adds to the existing socio-economic disparities of a highly vulnerable population.

Our key areas of work primarily revolve around innovation, training, research, and advocacy to provide quality education to the state. In these trying times, it is our duty as a responsible non-profit to extend a helping hand to the tribal households with food and essentials. Families have run out of money with their sources of income drying up owing to the closure of the weekly haats and restrictions imposed on daily markets. With no customers around, farm and forest produce lie unsold and on the verge of decay.

Public Distribution Systems are in place but are inadequate in reaching the last mile. We aim to reach out to 5300 households in 5 remote Gram Panchayats of the Kaptipada block of Mayurbhanj district, namely Ranipokhari, Kalamgadia, Notto, Saradiha and Ramchandpur with food and other essentials. We are also conducting regular orientation and awareness drives in the villages to relay accurate information and advisories from the government and primary health centers.

Your contribution will be directed towards providing a kit consisting of food items and other essential goods like flattened rice, sugar, cooking oil, pulses, biscuits, potato, infant milk powder, soap, and face masks.

Support a vulnerable tribal family in Odisha!
