Jharkhand Tribal Development Society (JTDS)
The Jharkhand Tribal Development Society has been registered under the Societies Registration Act of 1860, primarily to implement tribal development projects of Government of Jharkhand, Government of India and multilateral organizations after the termination of the earlier project. For implementation of the new Jharkhand Tribal Empowerment and Livelihood Project (JTELP) it has been established 14 Project Management Units (DPMUs)/Offices in the districts where the project activities has been carried out and a State level Project Management Unit ( SPMU)/Office at Ranchi.
The JTDS program seeks to develop and implement a replicable model that ensures household food security and improves livelihood opportunities and overall quality of life of the Tribal population based on sustainable and equitable use of natural resources.
The program aims at:
- Empowering the Tribal Grassroots’ associations and user groups including women and other marginal groups.
- Promoting activities, which generate sustainable increases in production and productivity of land and water resources
- Generating sources of income outside agriculture, particularly for landless.See more
