"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..."

The present submitted project by Nutanhat Development Society, is on sustainable development program for 10 villages belonging to tribal and backward castes of Purulia I block, district Purulia, West Bengal.The initial project was for three years with the objectives of women and youth group mobilisation, survey/studies of natural resources and staff (HRD) development, and soil and water conservation. Their earlier small projects were supported by HIMOS, Netherland, Central Social Welfare Board, New Delhi, IGSSS, New Delhi and MIVA, Netherland. This is the first time that AID is considering the project from this NGO, so the initial budget for the project $29,900 was rejected by the CSH.
