Towards empowerment of the Adivasi community of Assam to design a progressive future.

The Injot Approach

For any community that has been historically disenfranchised, we need to address traumas of the past, identify and address issues of the present, and empower its members to build a better future. Injot’s three-fold program approach is a journey that starts with healing of trauma that is both historic, as well as (socio-economic and political) system induced. True empowerment, we believe can only happen when we address emotional challenges alongside intellectual, physical and economic needs.


The community needs healing from historic trauma and that of extreme marginalisation. Our effort will be to conduct various intervention programs that focus on self awareness, conflict resolution, group development and community leadership.


Education is the backbone of any community. Injot intends to work in the field of education by setting up children and youth learning centres, by organising exposure programs for children and youth, running adult education programs, political, legal and financial literacy programs and human rights awareness programs.


Empowerment is the end goal of Injot’s interventions. We envisage empowerment through right information, right exposure and appropriate training. Economic empowerment is sought to be achieved by facilitating government schemes, and conducting entrepreneurship, livelihood, employability, legal, and financial training.

Our Impact


Injot works in four areas for community development and mobilisation – education, livelihood, gender and relief. We are presently working in two districts of Assam – Kamrup Metropolitan district and Kokrajhar district. We intend to expand to more districts as we progress. Under the umbrella of Injot Education we have started three Learning Centres for  marginalised children who have been left out of the education system because of the pandemic. We also provide training and mentorship to community youth through workshops and Sanghe Urab – a mentorship program for Adivasi youth of Assam. Besides that we are working on alternative livelihood solutions for the community by becoming a bridge between the government and the people.
