Many areas in the state of Odisha in Northern India is still backward in education and development. ASSURE (Agency for Spiritual and Social Upliftment Through Renewal and Education) volunteers are living with the tribal people, providing home schooling and training.
Adult literacy, education on justice and health using street theatre, advocacy for the poor in land disputes and human rights are some of the areas of involvement of the Agency.
ASSURE is helping the tribal children to obtain education and is also involved in providing water and sanitation for poor villages.
Healing International is financially supporting ASSURE in their work.
