There is a gross lack of true facts and information about Adivasis in the world of global internet. About the Adivasis, the Internet gives us very deceptive, factless and strange information. Its main reason is ignorance, colonial approach and racial discrimination towards Adivasi society.

The aim of this program is to provide maximum representation of the Adivasi information and the information available on the internet (like wikipedia, youtube and other social media) with the help of the community.
