Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Migration and trafficking is the common phenomena in the tribal villages of Jharkhand. The proposed district Ranchi which is mostly populated by tribals the migration and trafficking is found in almost all villages. People go to metro cities for livelihood but they are not getting fair treatment and are exploited by the middleman and contractors. This is a very serious problem faced by mostly tribal people in Jharkhand. Most of the women who migrate to big cities for livelihood they are exploited sexually, economically, psychologically and physically. There must be initiative to be taken by Govt. as well as civil society organization on the issue.

The Social Awareness for Democratic Art & Research is a women organization founded by tribal women of Jharkhand with the objective to work for the tribal women who are far from the main stream. The major thrust area of the organization is to work among the women specially the excluded communities on the issues of their rights and education and health. In Jharkhand migration and trafficking is a major problem in the tribal dominated area so it comes on priority of the organization. This project will contribute to achieve the vision and mission of the organization.
