Education, Basic Health Care, Clean Water and Technical Training. South Asia
These communities are traditionally hunter-gatherers, consuming fruits and tubers from the forest. Every day they trek into the forest in search of that day’s food. Once they find sufficient tuber for a meal, they come back to their village, cook and eat. Without a well balanced diet, malnourishment and subsequent medical problems have plagued the groups. There are no nearby medical facilities or doctors to care for their medical needs. Living on the edge of poverty, they face further challenges due to illiteracy, unemployment, malnourishment and attacks from wild animals.
This project will attempt to bring some hope into these communities. It will provide single classroom schools in eight villages, dig two wells for fresh water, set up a tailoring school for women in two locations, and provide a salary for a social worker to teach hygiene and nutrition.
There are two communities that we are trying to help. Each community will cost A$35,000, so the total need is A$70,000.
