Requested by

Tribal Enterprises (Bible Hill Youth Club)

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

Hill indigenous people in North East India are living under US$ 1 a day (Rs. 80/-) with no opportunity to trade, develop skills or generate income other than the shifting cultivation and forest products.

Their rights as human beings are denied. Their land, territories and resources are manipulated by others.

Women are exposed,vulnerable, and often sexually abused. Limited access to skill development training, income generation and employment opportunities while women and youth needs are rising.

We are providing socio-economic development opportunities by imparting broad-based weaving skill and produce of market-based, eco-friendly products. A Self-determination development with cultural identity.

With women empowered, earning income (US$ 4-5) a day will help to provide education for their children, afford basic health care facilities. Every year about 20 children die of simple disease because of lack of medicines. We are going to help solve the social and economic problems. Setting up Youth Business Groups will minimize militancy in the areas and minimize early deaths.

7. Create linkages of the local business and financial institutions with the Women and Youth Business Groups, where they will continue to get access to relevant information and financial services.

8. Train youths in innovative designs of modern women traditional wears.

9. Increase the weaving machines to 10 every year, providing 100 regular employment to indigenous women and youth in the process.
