Continuing with activities in the mental health awareness month of October, we organized two events with women of Bahujan, Adivasi, NT-DNT communities living in rural and peri-urban areas.

One of these was going on a refreshing “Nature Trail” in Kolegaon – women of DBA communities are historically leaders of environmental justice and environmental protection. They went on an early morning walk with environment experts to spots within their neighbourhood where they learnt about unique land forms, birds, animals, plants and their special characteristics. The most fun part was that there were many things that the local women knew more than the experts – which the latter too learnt enthusiastically from them!
