Alleviating the Lives of Distressed Tribals through Relief and Rehabilitation
“Tribal people in the rurals, the weaker section of our modern society often live a distressed life due to the injustice happening with them, the calamities caused by natural disasters, and the chronic infections & illnesses. To ensure their survival and well-being, it is very important to lend a helping hand & rehab the distressed tribals and provide them with a better life with all the fundamental rights.”

Rehabilitation Programme to Fight Injustice in Society
In tribal inhabited project villages, at different times, some evil-mindset persons and groups exploit the innocent and uneducated tribal people by forcibly taking away their farmlands and properties. To restrict such frauds and to ensure justice, ACM helps distressed individuals in appealing necessary legal actions and get back their assets and lost respect in a judicial way.
belonging to Lodhas, Kolha, Kondhas, and Santala communities have been provided with financial & legal aid to fight the injustice and get back their lands from the exploiters.

Social Transformation Programme of ‘LODHA’
Lodhas – the primitive tribe of Mayurbhanj, often termed as Criminal tribe for their burglary and theft activities, were in great distress of poverty and social discrimination. To transform the Lodhas and connect the community with today’s mainstream society, ACM has done a lot of interventions like legal de-criminalisation of Lodhas in the presence of Magistrates, providing them education and livelihood, taking care of their nutrition and health, developing their skills, and much more.
