Project Birsa

Jharkhand-The Land of Forest was formed in the year 2000 on Bhagwan Birsa Munda’s birth anniversary. Birsa Munda mobilised tribal communities and started an Ulgulan (Great Tumult) against Dikus (Outsiders) forcing them to introduce laws protecting the Land Rights of Tribal people.

Asvattha celebrated “Janjatiya Gaurav Diwas” by inaugurating Ulgulan “Project Birsa” against the present-day Dikus on the birth anniversary of legendary Bhagwan Birsa Munda. On this auspicious occasion, Asvattha NGO distributed blankets to the needy.

On the occasion of the 146th birth anniversary of Birsa Munda – Birsa Munda Jayanti – on 15 November 2021, “Project Birsa,” a collaboration with NGO Asvattha, brought cheer and warmth to marginalised tribal communities of Jharkhand through donations of blankets.
