Why work with usTeam of volunteers, who involved in Tribal Development from the year 1987, consolidated their work experience in 1994 taking the situation of the tribal into account. The outcome of the consolidation made them to go for registering the organisation called â€˜Action for Community Transformation India Foundation Trustâ€™ (ACT India Foundation) in the year 1995. By their experience with the tribal, they felt and understood that the tribal need to understand the mainstream and keep themselves protected out of exploitation of the mainstream development; at the same time, they have to keep playing their role as tribal in the Palani Hills through protecting their tribal life and culture. Therefore, they gave importance to the education of the tribal children, specially girl children,. At the same time, they keep on working with the tribal community with the integrated approach to development and empowerment till now.
