The Sahariya Experience
Samrakshan Charitable Trust is a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) working in Sheopur district of Madhya Pradesh for the past two decades focusing on research based interventions at the grassroots.
Over the years, Samrakshan has developed as a field research station for scholars working on issues of dryland livelihoods, displacement, conservation and rain-fed agriculture.
This is a first of its kind initiative in the region where ecotourism is being introduced as a source of livelihood for the local community, especially the Sahariya Adivasi.
