Following the success of the ‘Village and Digital connect initiative’, TRIFED under Ministry of Tribal Affairs has now launched “Sankalp se Siddhi”- Village & Digital Connect Drive. The 100 day drive was started from April 1, 2021.
150 teams will be formed under this campaign and 10 people will be included in each team. The teams will visit 10 villages, covering 1500 villages across the country in 100 days.
These teams will identify potential 'Van Dhan Vikas Kendras' for Trifood and SFURTI units and places for large enterprises (Scheme of Fund for Regeneration of Traditional Industries). The main objective of this campaign is to make 'Van Dhan Vikas Kendras' active in these villages.
These teams will identify tribal artists and other groups and empanel them as suppliers through the Tribes India Network with a view to ensuring access to the larger markets.
'Trifood Scheme' is a joint initiative of Ministry of Food Processing Industries, Ministry of Tribal Affairs and TRIFED. It aims to increase the income of tribals through better use of Minor Forest Produce collected by tribals and through value addition.
