Fruits of Culture
Arunachal Pradesh
The Challenge:
  •  The Nishi tribe of Papum Pare District lacked an integrated programme for enhanced economic activity
  • 750 acres of land in this district lay uncultivated
  • The tribe also lacked connectivity to the marked
The Solution:
  • WADI (Orchard) Programme of NABARD supported intercropping oranges with pineapples, sugarcane and banana
  • Programms for women’s employment were conducted for capacity building via Self Help Groups (SHGs)
  • For those who did not own sizeable plots of land, animal husbandry was promoted as a viable support
The Impact:
  • Brand Arunachal is a NABARD funded store where handloom and crafts items produced by the women’s SHGs of Nishi tribe are sold
  • Social and economic well-being of the Nishi tribe
