Tribal
1 Total inclusion of tribal women in kudumbashree
Poor self-esteem, low income, domestic violence, malnourishment and related issues contribute to the backwardness of tribal community. Kudumbashree tries to address these key areas through building up of Neighborhood groups and developing activities based on that platform. Strong and empowered exclusive tribal neighborhood group in tribalcommunity will help in instigating self-esteem, negotiation power, critical analysis of their own situation and collective work towards social transformation. The aim for 2018- 19 is to build 500more NHGS and developing existing 500 NHGs into Self-sustainable ones.
The current 533 neighborhoods have been selected for setting up of the best 500 Scheduled Tribes. Provision of all necessary capacity building training for these neighborhoods Providing various funds to members in livelihood activities. There are a number of activities that are being implemented, including to provide services to various development departments in order to activate agricultural and animal employment. The use of special tribal animator services is in progress and the neighborhood admission for entire families activity  are going on.
2 Tribal livelihood activities
Decline in traditional livelihood activities and irregular MNREGS wages were contributing to the very low income status of tribal community. In this context, sustainable livelihood is an area to be explored well for main streaming them. In 2018-19 kudumbashree is planning to conduct exclusive food/art/craft festivals for the tribal livelihood group and identified 54 groups. Handholding support is being given to them now. By the end of this financial year, 50 traditional livelihood groups [medicine/craft/art] and 50 catering unit from tribal kudumbashree members will be formed.
Separate interventions are required in Scheduled Tribes to make livelihood facilities their livelihood. The skills required to handle innovative ideas are less common in STs So, staying on their traditional system will also succeed in establishing innovative ideas. At present, the work will be completed to start 38 traditional ME and the activities of 16 enterprises are also in progress. Traditional medical treatment centers have been started. Those who are trained  in Irringal Craft Village are also interested to start handicrafts ,traditional food,  and art  group activity.
3 Advance payment for MNREGS tribal workers in wayanad and attappady with support of tribal department
According to MNREGS act, wages are to be paid within 15 days of completion of a work. Unfortunately, this is delayed for months and hence the community is hesitant to take up this “job assured”. To overcome this hurdle, Government of Kerala plans for weekly payment of wages (as advance) for which the amount will be channeled from ST Department. This year, we are piloting it at Wayanad and Attappady. The programme aims to provide advance wage to 10000 tribal MNREGS workers this year.
There are 11 crores of rupees from Scheduled Tribes Development Department with 3 gram panchayats in Attappadi and 3 gram panchayats in Wayanad district selected for fund distribution. One of the three ooru in Attappady is through oorusamithi  and muttil  Grama Panchayat in  Wayanad  District is also functioning. The wage can be started at all locations by November 30, 2018. This project is being implemented in Kannur Kasaragod, Idukki and Palakkad districts as it leads to more demand in the Scheduled Tribes Development Department
4 Special educational   intervention in tribal hamlet
Education is the one and only means to address to the upcoming generation. In tribal hamlets, this .system is weak because many show inconsistencies in studies and they need special help to overcome the causes of being a drop-out like, poorself-esteem, inequity faced at educational institution and language related issues. To address this major challenge, we have proposed for starting Bridge Course for school going students. This year, it is proposed to conduct 100 bridge courses that benefits 2000 tribal children
It is in the process that the children are included in the Balasabha and joining adolescent clubs. More centralized activities can be done only if the children's education standard is determined. Primary school education is the same as everyday school students are getting to the general public, It has already begun 22 bridge courses to ensure primary tuition. The teachers here are for ST community and 28 adolescent clubs have been started to expand this activity. It will organize reading and promotion of educational promotional programs and encourage library and art activities

Tribal
Sl. No Goals for 2018 – 19 Achievement till Nov 28
1 Total inclusion of tribal women in kudumbashree
Poor self-esteem, low income, domestic violence, malnourishment and related issues contribute to the backwardness of tribal community. Kudumbashree tries to address these key areas through building up of Neighborhood groups and developing activities based on that platform. Strong and empowered exclusive tribal neighborhood group in tribalcommunity will help in instigating self-esteem, negotiation power, critical analysis of their own situation and collective work towards social transformation. The aim for 2018- 19 is to build 500more NHGS and developing existing 500 NHGs into Self-sustainable ones.
The current 533 neighborhoods have been selected for setting up of the best 500 Scheduled Tribes. Provision of all necessary capacity building training for these neighborhoods Providing various funds to members in livelihood activities. There are a number of activities that are being implemented, including to provide services to various development departments in order to activate agricultural and animal employment. The use of special tribal animator services is in progress and the neighborhood admission for entire families activity  are going on.
2 Tribal livelihood activities
Decline in traditional livelihood activities and irregular MNREGS wages were contributing to the very low income status of tribal community. In this context, sustainable livelihood is an area to be explored well for main streaming them. In 2018-19 kudumbashree is planning to conduct exclusive food/art/craft festivals for the tribal livelihood group and identified 54 groups. Handholding support is being given to them now. By the end of this financial year, 50 traditional livelihood groups [medicine/craft/art] and 50 catering unit from tribal kudumbashree members will be formed.
Separate interventions are required in Scheduled Tribes to make livelihood facilities their livelihood. The skills required to handle innovative ideas are less common in STs So, staying on their traditional system will also succeed in establishing innovative ideas. At present, the work will be completed to start 38 traditional ME and the activities of 16 enterprises are also in progress. Traditional medical treatment centers have been started. Those who are trained  in Irringal Craft Village are also interested to start handicrafts ,traditional food,  and art  group activity.
3 Advance payment for MNREGS tribal workers in wayanad and attappady with support of tribal department
According to MNREGS act, wages are to be paid within 15 days of completion of a work. Unfortunately, this is delayed for months and hence the community is hesitant to take up this “job assured”. To overcome this hurdle, Government of Kerala plans for weekly payment of wages (as advance) for which the amount will be channeled from ST Department. This year, we are piloting it at Wayanad and Attappady. The programme aims to provide advance wage to 10000 tribal MNREGS workers this year.
There are 11 crores of rupees from Scheduled Tribes Development Department with 3 gram panchayats in Attappadi and 3 gram panchayats in Wayanad district selected for fund distribution. One of the three ooru in Attappady is through oorusamithi  and muttil  Grama Panchayat in  Wayanad  District is also functioning. The wage can be started at all locations by November 30, 2018. This project is being implemented in Kannur Kasaragod, Idukki and Palakkad districts as it leads to more demand in the Scheduled Tribes Development Department
4 Special educational   intervention in tribal hamlet
Education is the one and only means to address to the upcoming generation. In tribal hamlets, this .system is weak because many show inconsistencies in studies and they need special help to overcome the causes of being a drop-out like, poorself-esteem, inequity faced at educational institution and language related issues. To address this major challenge, we have proposed for starting Bridge Course for school going students. This year, it is proposed to conduct 100 bridge courses that benefits 2000 tribal children
It is in the process that the children are included in the Balasabha and joining adolescent clubs. More centralized activities can be done only if the children's education standard is determined. Primary school education is the same as everyday school students are getting to the general public, It has already begun 22 bridge courses to ensure primary tuition. The teachers here are for ST community and 28 adolescent clubs have been started to expand this activity. It will organize reading and promotion of educational promotional programs and encourage library and art activities
