The farmers of Uttar Chakwakheti (UC) who are predominantly tribal, will benefit maximally if and only if they fulfil the caste criteria authenticated by the state. Authentication is done through issuing a caste certificate by the government, a process that is sometimes cumbersome especially for the poor tribal communities. CDHI recently facilitated the granting a certificate at UC. This has been an important step for community confidence building and engagement with government officials that will open doors for project outscaling and expansion of our programs.
The attached document describes the process and the video highlights celebrations at the official ceremony.
