"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

The support sought in this proposal is for the activities under the Swaraj Campaign for strengthening of Panchayats in the Eastern Uttar Pradesh districts of Deoria and
