Nomads Looking for a New Future

Read more about Upkar Sansthan in the article Green Paradise.

In earlier days the nomadic Gadia Luhar tribe did a lot of transport with bullock carts. But nowadays there are so many pick-ups, vans and trucks. It is not easy for them to get enough income from transport. The nomadic life has become more difficult anyhow. The development-activist organisation Upkar Sansthan helps the Luhars to get a piece of land for agriculture. And a school and vocational training.
