Foraging The Forests – Korku of India

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Foraging the forests historically, Korku Tribes in Betul District of Madhya Pradesh are some of the most impoverished and malnourished people on the face of the earth.  Historically rangers and caretakers of the forest, their traditional diets have come from just that, foraging the forests.  As a result, they seldom eat nutritious foods and are mostly devoid of protein intake.

Water, of good clean quality has also been in extremely short supply with the Korku.  Many have to travel longs distances to collect small amounts of low quality water for their homes and living needs.

Additionally, due to competition among so-called government groups there, little has been received from the people in terms of genuine self-sustainable help.

GHNI is currently in the process of a project to help in some key areas of need among the Korku. Rameshwer has requested at least 1 good water well and 30 (10 males & 20 females) goats for the village clusters he works in.  Rameswer is a truly good man working under extreme conditions, as he gives to the Korku people from his limited resources.  GHNI is committed to helping Rameswer and the Korku he serves.
