Basic Information About The Initiative
The organisation AIM is working in 42 villages of Mitoli block in Lakhimpur Kheri district. Agriculture is the main source of livelihood in the district, and these areas are dominated by upper castes such as brahmins, thakurs and Kurmis, whose control over agricultural land is very strong and extensive. Dalits have little access to agricultural land being either landless agricultural labour or small farmers. Households in the Dalit community find it difficult to lead a life in dignity and food security issues. In addition to economic discrimination, these communities also face social discrimination. Untouchability and caste discrimination against Dalits is prevalent in these areas. Within the community children and women are the most vulnerable.
