Project holder: Deepak Dabhi
CRY support since: 2010-2011
Adivasi Sarvangi Vikas Sangh has been working for around 17 years in Banaskantha. They have now extended their reach to Sabarkantha district too. The organisation was founded for the comprehensive development – socio, economic, educational and cultural – of the tribal communities in the region.
Tribal communities can look forward to socio-economic and educational rights, as well as identity and culture.
The organisation’s plans include – providing education to the tribal children and mainstreaming of child labour, ensuring immunisation on a regular basis, to bring children out of malnourishment and to strengthen and activate children’s groups.
