Attapady Comprehensive tribal and particularly vulnerable tribal development programme
Exclusive Adivasi Women’s Collectives for Regenerating Agriculture for Food and Nutritional Security, Economic Sustainability and Self-Reliance. The project aims to uplift the social and economic status of Irula, Muduga and Kurumba tribal communities of Attappady. Sustainable livelihoods like agriculture and allied activities need to be developed where the community can be self-reliant and self sufficient in food. Women’s institutions would be built up for total financial inclusion leading towards poverty alleviation and social development. Awareness generation would be enhanced on all issues for the communities to be able to access all entitlements and schemes. The institutions would enable women to access credit, engage in sustainable livelihoods, build up entrepreneurship, marketing and negotiation capacities and capacity to assert their agency in all realms from the domestic front to the various forums like the area of work, Panchayat and various departments.
