"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..."

Over 2 lakh refugees fleeing from the violence in lower Assam are housed in relief camps with very limited provisions from the central and state governments. There is an urgent need for the provision of relief to the families, including children whose lives, education and livelihoods have been disrupted. In a very small initiative, humanist young people have decided to work together for relief and reconciliation.





Joint teams from both the Bodo and Muslim communities are going to the camps and assessing the needs.





Provide relief to the refugees who have fled from the violence in lower Assam and initiate a process of reconciliation between the Bodo and the Bengali Muslim communities.
