"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

 

 

AHRM and Janpath have teamed up to ensure the vital needs of Agariya salt-worker communities, mainly located in the Little Rann of Kutch, are met. These needs range from urgent health care to long-term political advocacy. In 2012, AHRM is seeking both immediate and sustainable solutions for the heath and livelihood of the Agariya community. In particular, AHRM is seeking AID-Blacksburg support for a solar lights project and for the necessary medical ointments for salt-laborers working in harsh conditions.
