Koraput District

Study reveals women are central to both food production and preparation, as well as to domestic water provisioning.

The water sector remains male dominated at different scales, from engineers and technocrats responsible for designing irrigation systems, to upper caste and upper class men who decide on the location of canals, borewells, tanks, and other water systems at the grassroots level. While women are involved in the daily management of water for food production, especially on small farms, they have little say in water provisioning decisions.

The villagers of Khalabari are hopeful that the overhead tank being built in the village would make drinking water easily accessible to them.

In the early hours, the villagers of Khalabari, a tribal-dominated village in the Dumuripadar gram panchayat of Koraput district in Odisha step out of their houses for bringing wood and drinking water. The road to the forest where the water is available is rocky. Both women and men walk a few kilometres on the harsh terrain to bring essential commodities needed for their survival. Khalabari, with a population of 186, has 45 households.

This article describes the story of a social activist Bidyut Mohanty who changed the lives of tribals from the poorest districts in Odisha

Villagers in one of the poorest districts in the country were caught up in a vicious cycle of starvation, debt and human bondage until the arrival of a social activist, Bidyut Mohanty, changed their lives. Mohanty felt the urgent need to break this cycle, and his idea of creating a grain bank for the largely tribal population of these villages has given them a new sense of ownership and self-respect.
