With these adversities and limited employment or income opportunities, quarrying is an important source of livelihood for the rural poor of Thar. An estimate suggests that nearly 2.5 million in the state work in various quarries and mines to earn daily wages and support their families.
GRAVIS activities focus on the poor, backward and marginalized parts of Thar desert communities, with particular emphasis on women, children and the elderly. GRAVIS is very concerned about children’s development, empowerment of women and gender equality.

The project is financed by the generous donations of the Gebhard Müller School (SMV) and supporting groups. Thank you very much! Strong>
