Message from CEO Caritas Australia

There are potentials to grow and develop the community but the cultural and habitations of the tribals are different from the other caste groups and hence to be treated according to their perspective. It will definitely take time but also grow with the pace of the people.
The donor agencies involved in the development of people are concerned about the issues but since the effects of the inflation are high and growing it is better to network with the Govt. schemes and policies of the state and the country.
He further appreciated the work and said that there is a definite change seen in the community members. He wished best of luck to all the Staff of Caritas India, SIGN Ranchi and Partners.
