Livelihood Support


Economy is dominated by various stakes. A tribal economy is vulnerable with regard to beneficiaries. Land alienation, degradation of natural resources, rampant exploitation, natural forces and lack of awareness are some of the major factors affecting the tribal economy. RAC has been involved in various projects with the aim to create avenues for livelihood for upliftment of the target group. RAC has trained and mobilized people. Targeted population has been assisted with necessary equipments, raw materials and resources in order to provide back-up for income-generation. In this regard different skill up gradation programmes have been carried out on different trades as per the local need and its feasibility as stated earlier.

RAC is engaged in promoting latest agricultural practices. Traditional farmers have been updated on modern trends and technological advances, use of hybrid seeds, use of well water, need for water harvesting particularly in dry areas or barren areas, mixed cultivation. This has led-to increase in income. Seeds and saplings have been distributed for plantation in fields and kitchen-gardens. RAC guided them initially after which farmers continued the practice on their own initiative. Farmers have learnt the value of soil conservation and need for water harvesting for future use in times of scarcity.
