Who We Are

Enabling & Enhancing the potential of the Marginalized (Dalits, Women, Artisans, Adivasis, Small and Marginal Farmers, and minorities) to Challenge & resist homogenization of cultures &systems, to reclaim their rights- political, social economic and cultural, to take control of their lives as individuals & communities, and to evolve an alternative paradigm of life and Governance in society.

Who We Are

Theme: “Believe in Each Other”

Land is not merely a source of livelihood but it should be recognized as the matrix in which life is sustained.

Hence, the culture represented by “Agri-culture”, of diversity, relationship and mutuality must be lifted up as one that re-produces, sustains and enhances life on this earth.
