Two projects in Bhaja and Bordharan aim to give Dalit and tribal people the social and emotional skills to cope with the hardships they face. The ethos is to promote a dignified and fulfilling life, based on the principles of non-violence, away from the intense slum environment. The project aims to promote strong communities which empowers women and in which people can develop self-esteem.
