Orissa being one of the poorer states of India has a sizable population belonging to the backward communities and weaker sections i.e. the scheduled castes and scheduled tribes. 40% of the geographical area is covered with hills and forests which is the land of the Tribes and Indigenous People.
The State of Orissa continuing in backwardness and under development with concentration of weaker sections in many areas, offer challenging opportunities for effective social interventions. Many areas of concern exist in the State to undertake programmes for creating avenues for sustainable development of society with clear option for the poor and oppressed.
