background and need for the project
Majority of the population, including the Bhil tribal communities, are
surviving with lack of basic facilities and opportunities for development. The
children and women of these communities are living in very pitiable and adverse
conditions concerning health, education-awareness as well as their rights to
participate in family and social life. Youths of these communities are also
migrating to nearby cities for better opportunities, and some are getting
involved in criminal and anti social activities due to lack of proper direction
and guidance for better living.
The idea is not only to develop creative
activities for and with the local population but also to create opportunities
for people outside Vagad to come and stay for some time (summer sessions or
residencies during the year) and learn about Vagad culture meanwhile they open
ways of communication with the outer world.
