The tribals are going through a crucial phase of identity crisis. Their very existence is being questioned today. They have their houses but the land on which they build it is not their own; they live in the forest but every tree in it belongs to the government; a river flows through their area, but its water is poisoned and therefore undrinkable. Uprooted from their own land and neglected by the government these tribals are unwillingly forced to move to towns in search of a dignified lifestyle, but in return they pay a heavy price for doing so. They have to give up their cultural identity in order to fit into the society.
In order to help the tribals in their times of struggle India Tribal Care Initiative has stepped in because it acknowledges the very fact that tribal community is very close to nature and believes in an honest and simple living which is most suited for God consciousness.
Realizing the challenge of overall development and to fulfill the desire of Srila Prabhupada to build a house where the whole world can live in the peace, HH Bhakti Purusottama Swami Maharaj, one of the governing body commissioners of Iskcon has taken a step to break vicious circle by different developmental initiatives and intervention. One such initiative has been ITCT which was inaugurated by him on 9th April, 2013 with HG Sridham Govinda Das as the Chief Co-ordinator.
Every one of our team members is devoted to delivering the best possible service to society.
