Welcome - or in Santali: Johar!

We are a circle of friends who support village development in Ghosaldanga and Bishnubati, two villages in West Bengal. The inhabitants of these two villages are indigenous people from the Santal tribe, one of the most populous indigenous tribes in India.

The work of development is organized and carried out by the villagers themselves. The most important task is education; further top priorities are medical /health care, ecological farming and the promotion of culture.

On-site work is inspired and accompanied by the German author Martin Kämpchen, who has been living in India for the past 40 years.
