Coverage of Vulnerable Categories

The largest North-East state, Assam, has two districts of interventions – Kamrup and Darrang, The populace of the identified villages is vulnerable owing to their economic depravity and physical marginalization from the mainstream population. Factors such as repeated crop failure, unfavorable landscape on account of floods and climate change, increasing expenditure in agricultural production, lack of employment and illiteracy, all combine to make them very deprived and helpless.
