About NGO Scheme
The Central Government and State Governments implement a number of schemes for the welfare & development of STs. However, VOs/NGOs also play an important role in enhancing the reach of Government Schemes and in filling the critical gaps of service deficient tribal areas. While governmental efforts are supplemented through VOs/NGOs to achieve the ultimate objective of delivery of services to remote and unreached tribal areas, the standard of services provided is equally important. Each partner VO/NGO is, therefore, expected to strive towards delivery of quality services.
The Ministry of Tribal Affairs implements the following schemes for the socio economic and educational development of STs through State Societies/VOs/NGOs which supplement Governmental efforts :-
- Grants-in-aid to Voluntary Organisations (VOs) working for the welfare of Scheduled Tribes .
- Strengthening Education Among ST Girls in Low Literacy Districts.
