"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

 

 

Rupantars work in the area of health has been concentrated in the remote tribal areas of Chattisgarh, with a clinic based in Bagrumnala village of Dhamteri district. Problems of Malaria (Falciparum) and TB were very prevalent and many diseases were linked to malnutrition and lack of basic medical care. Rupantar has trained and supervised community health volunteers in the villages who can take care of upper and lower respiratory infections, diarrhea, malaria, nutrition and post and ante natal care in their communities.
Chattisgarh was traditionally known for a rich heritage of indigenous rice seeds that were adapted to different micro-eco systems. Rupantar has concentrated in the collection and dissemination of knowledge about these seeds, through a network of farmers.

 
 

  Achievements

 

 

Village workers have carried on with the biodiversity maintainance activity very well in 2008. Rupantar was visited recently by a student group from the Mahindra United World college and they to catalog, characterize and and package the seeds. The clinic has continued with the valiant efforts of Ghasiya, Yogeshwar Bhukhau and others. Drs Anurag, Yogesh, Raman and Ravi have also been coming on visits.
