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.

Sivagami has been making a healthy herbal drink with villagers called Kaba sura Kudineer. Prepared from fresh herbs and culinary plants it is served with sugar and she says, is extremely good for you!
A friend of the ISLAND Trust and Tamwed, Sonia Sudhakar who is based in London, is raising funds to get food and core essentials to tribal families who have been desperately affected by Covid-19. Her appeal is at: https://www.gofundme.com/f/essential-food-for-tribal-families-in-india? Please help her raise what is needed as the situation is becoming more desperate for families in the remote villages that the ISLAND Trust supports.
Seeds being distributed by Mrs Sivagami for farms, family gardens and for the plant nursery. Home-grown vegetables will allow tribal communities to become less dependent on markets and government rations while medicinal plants, grown to create traditional remedies, complement modern methods of health care. This has become more important since the arrival of Covid-19.
