Land can't hold water in our hilly areas so we Pahadi Korwa tribe are poor...

Fulmet Pahadi Korwa, a girl from Pahadi Korwa primitive tribal community is telling us the reasons why her community is very poor. She says we live up in the hills and land can not hold much water there and productivity of farms is less. We do not know anything apart from farming she says. Education is very less and we also do not have recognition as a primitive tribe in some places like where I live in Upar Salketa village in Raigarh district of Chhattisgarh. The number of people in our tribe is also very less. Fulmet@9522730355
