Registered Charity 1113533

Linking communities in the UK and India

Our aim is to improve and sustain the quality of life and environment of tribal people in the Nilgiris Hills of South India.


Our Partner The Island Trust

Our partner organisation The Island Trust works closely with communities in a group of villages on a Tamwed-funded project to improve the health of tribal families; help them to tackle the effects of climate change; and promote their rights and their unique culture. We hope that we can prevent migration from their traditional homelands with the resources they and their children need for sustainable, productive lives.
