In India the dalits (Schedule Caste) and the adivasis (Schedule Tribe) have been socially excluded for past several centuries, this has resulted in their deprivation from all the basic resources and amenities required for survival. CNI SBSS’s past years experience has helped to understand that deprivation for these communities is a multidimensional phenomenon. Poverty for them is not only limited to fiscal but also in relation to other basic necessities of life. This experience has also been validated by different scientific indicators like Human Development Index (Developed in 1990 by Mahbub ul haq and Amartya Sen) and Multidimensional Poverty Index (Developed in 2010 by Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative and the United Nations Development Programme) which include dimensions like education, health, sanitation, water to asset ownership and income indices. A multidimensional approach towards poverty reduction can set free thee communities from the age old clutches of poverty and ensure that these communities receive an equitable share of the country’s growth.
The third phase, “See..a reign in righteousness and rule with justice” (ending in March 2016) was implemented in six states. The new project “Rebuilding Walls & Rebuilding Lives” (commence on April 2016) will address multiple dimensions of poverty. Intensive capacity building of community, governance representatives and administrative functionaries will be carried out in 100 core villages. Intervention in 810 villages will focus on collectivizing people on overall issue of social equality. It is expected that as community leaders in core villages improve their capacity and start intervening on multiple issues, by the end of three years they will start influencing leaders and processes in the remaining villages as well and the process will start spreading to entire 910 villages.
Goal: “To improve the Human Development Poverty Index among dalit and tribal by ensuring their rights through strengthening of collective institutions of people, governance and administrative institutions; and their mutual interface through Diocese and their Congregation.”
