Coolie Sangha Consolidation application for the CEP (March 1994)
- To assist the Coolies in this final year of Coolie Sangha Consolidation so
that they can take over all and every responsibility by March 1995 when ADATS
totally withdraws from Bagepalli taluk.
- To keep the ADATS central office going till April 1995 when these costs
will be borne by the donor consortium being formed by NOVIB, ICCO and
- To continue the skill training programme for another year with 3 more
sessions for a total of 90 Coolie youth and place them at well paying jobs in
factories at Bangalore.
Background for this application
On 22 January 1993 ADATS submitted a 2 year proposal for Coolie Sangha
Consoli-dation in the Chelur Area of Bagepalli taluk. On 21 July 1993 NOVIB
approved a 1 year phase of this project, as Ida 014-93-001, for the period
January to December 1993. We are therefore preparing this application for the
remaining year (stretched to 15 months to accommodate the Indian financial
year ending 31st March) of Coolie Sangha Consolidation.
