The main purpose of BRLF is to promote and strengthen civil society action and upscale innovations that would empower the rural poor particularly the Adivasi Communities. BRLF through an elaborate selection process identified 34 Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and has provided grants for designing and executing various livelihood interventions in 8 Central Indian states to transform the lives of tribal communities living in the Central India Tribal region. Agriculture and Livestock are the main interventions under the livelihood domains of BRLF. Besides, CSO partners are also undertaking work on Non-Pesticides Management based Agriculture, Participatory Ground Water Management (PGWM), Solid and Liquid Waste Management. Intervention strategies are also being developed to work with De-notified and Nomadic Tribes in Maharashtra. BRLF supports its CSOs not only through grants but also provides technical assistance through its knowledge partners and capacity building initiatives.
