Samagrata means inclusiveness. The Akshara programme works hard to reach out to the most vulnerable members of society. A rigorous exercise was done to identify what program- ming would be most successful and relevant for people in the local area. The Akshara team has identified the Katakari tribal families as being in great need of our support. As a first initiative, fifteen families from the area were given solar panels to have light inside their homes. More projects are being developed for addressing their needs along with improving opportunities for these families. A new Community Centre, with Library and access to com- puters has been built and on-going programming looks to give access to opportunities to this group of marginalized peoples who wish to learn new skills.
