HOW IT STARTED

Mr. Kasim Ali and Mr. Ajai Kumar Mishra, two community leaders, teamed together over a handful of years ago to serve the district of Balrampur which was in impoverished, unskilled, as well as in poor state . Together, they formed Tarai Environment Awareness Samiti, an NGO committed to work for the communities and involve them in the creation of a sustainable environment .

TEAS help in plugging out the gap in the government’s programmes and reach out to people from different sections of society who are often left untouched by state projects especially in rural areas. For example, providing aid to migrant workers in Covid-19 crisis. We try to engage, collaborate and cooperate  in diverse activities, relating to human and labour rights, gender issues, healthcare, environment, education, disaster management , development process etcetera. 

We act as a social mediator which involves an intervention at different levels of society by various agents to change social and behavioural attitudes within the prevailing social environment for achieving desired results of change in society.
