Detail Description About Activity

LIVELY-HOOD EMPOWERMENT:

The Tribal Lively-hood is based upon three basic elements called LAND, FOREST and CULTURE. Land provides food for three to four months a year where as the Forest provides food for eight months. Culture is the life of the Tribal people which plays a vital role on the life situation of the Tribal people. But in present position they are staying far away from their ancient culture. Hence, the lives of the Tribal people are not in a stable position which invites their misery. In this juncture, we are initiating them to preserve and strengthen their ancient culture, be involved with different life-saving activities and be reconnected with spiritualism in order to empower them and save their community from the attack of other culture and Anti-social elements from the unprecedented situations.

EDUCATIVE COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS:

In order to face the anti-social elements of the society we have organized 360 People’s Organizations like GRAM UNNAYAN SANGHAS and MAHILA SANGHAS and working in a NET-WORKING system so as to face the Anti-social elements of the Society and different type of hazardous situations.

PROVIDING FINANCIAL SECURITY:

ARASMIN is not in support of the linkage programme like linkage to Banks and Micro-Finance Institutes which spoils the lively-hood of the poor Tribal People as they do not know the proper utilization of money and finally they pay back the loans by selling their ornaments or utensils or animal resources or landed property which we have experienced practically in our hoary past engagement. Hence, we have taken another strategy by providing encouraging grants to the hilly-dwelling poor Tribal women through their Sanghs in order to make them habituated with saving activities and to go for different income generating programmes in order to strengthen their socio-economic condition which can be told as Economic Revolution.

PROVIDING SOCIAL SECURITY

We are also providing Leadership Trainings to the men and women and the youth mass of all villages so as to promote their Leadership quality in order to raise their voice against severe Exploitations and Social Injustice and to face the anti-social elements of the society. The people are also being educated on protection and preservation of their Common Property Resources and to have its proper utilization.

AGRICULTURE AND GREEN ECONOMY:

We have observed that lack of Lively-hood alternatives is another major reason of degradation of natural resources.  Ecology works to promote sustainable agriculture, non-timber forest products and community enterprise.  We are working to provide these alternative opportunities that improve the individuals and poor Community well-being. Hence, we are encouraging our Community members to have the subsistence Agricultural production that saves the lives of the Tribal people as well as keeps the Planet healthy.

DISASTER MANAGEMENT:

  • Establishment of GRAIN BANKS by the Community members so as to face the Disaster situations like DRAUGHT, FLOOD, CYCLONE or any NATURAL CALAMITY.
  • Establishment of VILLAGE DEATH FUNDS by the Community so as to help all individuals amongst them at the time of anybody’s death in their Family.

FOOD SECURITY AND HEALTH SECURITY:

All the poor Tribal people of this Tribal belt are the victims of severe exploitation. Though, they strive hard from morning to evening in the Forest for their daily bread, the entire benefits goes to the businessmen. They are also exploited in different sectors of life by the village Touts, Government Officers, Contractors, Financial Institutions, Non-Governmental Organizations and some exterminatory creatures as a result of which they do not get a peace meal per day. Hence, in order to provide FOOD SECURITY and HEALTH SECURITY we have taken the following strategies:

Establishment of KOTH FUNDS by the community members in order to make the People free from LOANS, free from INTEREST burden, free from WANTS and over all, availing the opportunity to meet their emergency needs.

FOREST AND ENVIRONMENT:

  • Environmental degradation during the present days has become a GLOBAL ISSUE. Degradation of Forest, Extinction of Wild Animals, diminishing Biological diversity and Raise of Temperature are an acute problem and the vital cause of Environmental degradation. It is a broad concept which includes pollution of various biological and physical components of the planet as a result of which the entire world is going to be destroyed. Though the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) allows emission reduction projects in developing Countries to earn Certified Emission-Reduction (CER) credits, the emission reduction targets of the Kyoto Protocol Conference (CoP20) is not yet satisfactory.
  • The fact is that, actually from the inception the Tribal people have been residing in Forest Area and they were the real owners of the Forests and Jungles and they were taking the proper care of the same. But, in course of time being motivated and misutilized by the Businessmen and wood MAFIAs they are in perseverance of destroying the Forests and Jungles to surmount their poverty. But, they are the real assets to save the nature.
  • In this juncture, we have thought it wise and gainful to work in conjunction with the endangered Tribal Community and trying for acceleration and restoration of Forest Landscape, Conservation of Biodiversity, protection of Nature, Control of Pollution, Restoration of Environment and Climate Change. On the other hand, the lives of all Wild Animals like Tigers, Elephants, Bears, deer, Monkeys, Wild Bores and other Animals can be saved. All the village Forests are being developed like Rain-Forest Model which will generate fresh Air, clean Water and create a congenial atmosphere for the lives of all. Hence, vigorous awareness campaigns with appropriate actions are being taken in a regular manner on Restoration of Forest Landscape, protection of Environment and conservation of Biodiversity.

WILD-LIFE CONSERVATION:

ARASMIN is an active member of the “Wildlife Institute of India” and as such we are trying our level best to protect the Wild Animals and Wild Birds and migrated Birds so as to avoid different type of Natural Calamities, en-hazards and different diseases like Cancer, Asthma and Tuberculosis etc. in order to accelerate the human life-cycle. A regular awareness program is being conducted to stop Tiger poaching, Deer poaching and hunting of different Animals and Birds. We are also getting much more support from the Officers and Staff of the Forest Department of the Government of Orissa.

HEALTH CARE AND HIV/AIDS:

  • We are providing Medical service assistance to the poor people in distress like Delivery Cases and Other Emergency Cases in our Area of operation by means of providing Ambulance service
  • Distribution of Vitamin-A, Albendazole tablets and Multi-vitamins for the pregnant women and lactating women are in continuation by the help of VitaAngel, USA.
  • Periodical awareness campaigns are being done on Contagious Diseases, specifically on Tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and Malaria Fever which are very common in this Tribal belt.

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT:

Trafficking of women in different manner and abuse to Girl children in this Tribal belt was a very common issue. The Socio-economic condition of the family is told to be the vital cause of the fact, but derivation of culture is another vital cause of the same. Hence, we are having regular Awareness programmes and interactions with the women mass for Women Empowerment, Gender equalization and Girl trafficking etc. so as to avoid such unpredictable situations. By means of our regular interactions, we have been able to sensitize the women and bring a significant change. Some of the villages adjacent to our area of operation being attracted with the activities of our people have followed them, but due to proper guidance though they have not developed as per their expectations, there are some changes in their life situation because of the establishment of Village Sangathans, Rice Banks, Cash Banks and Seed Banks.

CULTURE AND SPIRITUALISM:

Culture is the most important aspect of Human Life cycle. Especially in Tribal belt, all the ancient people were abided by the law of their Culture and Tradition which was very Economic, Scientific and based upon Spiritualism and were getting lots of benefits out of the same. But, in course of time they have lost their ancient culture and have accepted the Culture of outside for which they are facing different hazardous situations and inviting their misery. In view of this fact, we are having regular inter-actions with the people and inspiring them to preserve their ancient culture and be acquainted and re-connected to spiritualism so as to take the best advantages of the same. They are advised to preserve their traditional Songs, Dances, Arts, musical instruments, Agricultural appliances and their Ornaments, brought back from the MAFIAS and looters. They are also advised not to destroy their heritages and to worship their Gods and Goddess with heart and soul. This has become a habit of these poor people and every year they are celebrating the Mega Cultural Functions in rotation inviting all Officers and Political Leaders of the District.

EDUCATION:

  • We had established two permanent Educational Institutions to provide better educational facilities to the Tribal Boys and Girls in our area of operation. Now, the Institutions from 2012 getting Grant-in-Aid from the Government are very running smoothly
  • Women literacy centers are also organized and being managed by us for the better acceleration of illiterate women mass.
  • We have established 50 (Fifty) Nos. of Adult Education Centers and 20 (Twenty) Nos. of village schools naming all the schools as ARASMIN Village School, in order to facilitate the Adult persons and small children of some inaccessible villages to have their study at their own villages. All these institutions are running on people’s contribution.
