what changed

Every year, a community in rural Maharashtra seasonally migrates for better livelihood opportunities. Children stay out of school and lack of proper medical care and drinking water are commonplace. Adding to their woes are successive years of drought, poor implementation of government schemes, negligible infrastructure and few livelihood options.

Amidst this situation, Kalapandhari Magasvargiya and Adivasi Gramin Vikas Sanstha (KMAGVS), decided to take a holistic approach and address the root causes of Migration and Barren lands. They focused their efforts on Healthcare, Education, Community Mobilisation and Youth Initiatives.

Today, Sarla is the President of the Village Youth Forum and works to create awareness on various issues confronting their community.
