Our Key Spheres
How we are changing the life of tribal community?
At AWF, we believe in promoting the economic and social empowerment of rural and tribal communities through a range of initiatives, including education, healthcare, and the preservation of tribal arts and crafts. Our projects are designed to provide sustainable livelihoods, particularly for women, while encouraging eco-friendly practices and preserving cultural heritage. We work closely with local communities to identify their needs and design projects that are tailored to their unique requirements. Our team of experts provides end-to-end support, from project ideation to implementation and monitoring, to ensure that our initiatives are successful in creating a positive impact on the ground.
Our Plantation Model
Our plantation model is a carefully crafted approach that prioritizes both the needs of the community and the environment. We exclusively plant trees on barren waste lands after consulting with local communities, ensuring our initiative aligns with their values. Moreover, by planting only indigenous or naturalized tree species, we try to guarantee a high survival rate and minimize disruption to the ecosystem.
