Advocacy and Lobby

With the increasing action and operation, association with like minded organizations has become imperative in the interest of the deprived people. Over the years Badlao Foundation has joined hands with many organizations on issue based movements, rights based campaigns and advocacy for many critical local aspects of national importance. Badlao continues to broad base its approach through sustained efforts.

With governance deficit several development projects are waiting implementation. This has only worsened the socio-economic condition of the poor and tribal people. This situation has also provided opportunity to the exploiters to further oppress them. The Foundation has been striving to ensure that justice reaches to the people. Rights and Entitlements based advocacy and lobby for rural people and deprived tribal have been taken in the right perspective. State and District level forums have been formed and a well planned campaign and pressure group strategy is being followed on issues like Land Rights of Tribal, Property Rights of Tribal Women, Panchayati Raj system and NTFP collection. Press meet and civic meets are arranged at regular intervals to ensure people exposure of these issues.
