Community Stakeholders Meeting

Hope you are in good health and protected from the Corona virus!

Our tribal community women and their families had tremendous vaccine hesitency, though the second wave hit these villages hard, with loss of loved ones. 

Animedh Charitable Trust (ACT) advocated for vaccine protection and also ensured that our resource persons on ground were all vaccinated fully or at least the 1st shot and they were able to demonstrate covid protectiion safety protocols and spread this vaccine awareness to the families that they visit regularly. 

Our women entrepreneurs have continued or revived income activities albeit slowly and cautiously. Seventy women beneficiaries'  families received a month's ration staples to cope with the difficult times. Dairy farming beneficiaries have moved ahead in generating income through better market linkages and continue to reap the benefits of the mentorship they received through the early stages of the project. 

Recently, we invited the Resident District Collector (RDC) , Principals of 2 schools, 3 social workers, 4 early child hood intervention centre and learning centre officials, Dean of the District Civil Hospital to jointly discuss and plan the way forward about connecting government and private resources and services to the people in the communities that need it the most. The new RDC fimly believes in the power of women as the enablers within the family for paying the path to development, education and prosperity and also recognized that the women are the most oppressed through systemic and socio economic and cultural barriers within the tribal communities that are already sidelined in the economic and development agenda of the rest of the country. The linkages  and collaboration between these crucial stakeholders helps to recognize and map needs to services and fast track the referral and resolve problem situations in the lives of the people and communities better.

We are hopeful that the 3rd wave does not unleash on these communities and that the schools and economic activity in the union territory resumes normalcy.
