AAF Joins Hands with Tea for Unity for Socio-economic Development of Tribals in Assam
The tribal communities make up a large population of Assam. As of the 2011 census, there are 3.88 million tribals who make up 12.45% of Assam’s population.
Being in such a large population, they remain in poor conditions and dependent on agriculture to support their lives. Despite technological progress, these tribals were deprived of technological use due to illiteracy. Income remains very low due to a lack of education.
Illiteracy not only affects the income of tribals but hinders development and increases poverty which in turn gives rise to issues like exploitation of women and has a negative impact on their mental health.
To fight these emerging issues in the tribal communities of Assam, AAF Director Anu Agarwal joined hands with Tea for Unity to make a difference in their lives.
Eliminating technical limitations and providing education, especially to tribal women and girls so that they can not only bring about a positive change in their lives but also bring about socio-economic development in the country.
Assam has only 11.62% literate tribals out of which only 4.65% are graduates and hold higher degrees. To bridge the gap between illiterate and literate, AAF extended its support for the upliftment of the socioeconomic status of these communities.
Uplifting Tribal Communities in Assam
Our prime goal is to create awareness among the community along with reducing gender inequality through our development projects. Inculcating leadership qualities and helping them identify their goals will boost their confidence and improve their mental health. This will help them in creating new income sources which will eventually help in their development.
