About INDIA

Pro-active to the rights of the children and downtrodden (Dalits), International Noble Work Development and Investigation Association (INDIA) is a voluntary organization non-profit, democratic and secular in nature having its presence in the State of Odisha for nearly two decades. Formally registered in 1996 under the Society Registration Act, the organization came into being as a result of the effort of some youth volunteers fighting for the cause of the oppressed in Buguda block of Ganjam district way back in the early nineteen nineties. Over the years it has been engaged in advocating the rights of the Dalits and fighting for the issues related to their development with emphasis on the rights of children and women.

Operational Area

Initially INDIA focused its intervention in the district of Ganjam and then keeping in view of similar problems persisting in its adjoining areas, the district of Phulbani was included in the area of operation.
Today, the organization is working in 6 Gram Panchayts (36 villages) of Buguda block and 2 Gram Panchayats of Polasara block in Ganjam district and 2 Gram Panchayats (20 villages) in Khajuripada block of Kandhamal district. The area of operation is mostly centered on dalit and tribal dominated villages yet to see the shine of development.

Thrust Areas

While the issues of caste related violence, atrocities, and discrimination still remain major areas of intervention; education, health, migration, livelihood, land and forest rights, right to NTFP, women empowerment and youth action form the core programme approach and development intervention. In all these programmes and interventions special emphasis is put for the causes of children and women, primarily due to their vulnerability and multiple marginalization.

INDIA believes in the power of individuals to bring about lasting and sustainable changes. Over the years, we have realised that more the individuals extending solidarity, the more is the impact of our efforts. Any institutional funding comes with an intention, good or bad. For our core activities, we bank upon people's voluntary support in terms of ideas, networks, time and money.
