Out of Birhor’s total population, around 10% reside in five tandas of Bagodar and Saria blocks of Giridih district. They live according to their traditional primitive lifestyle and deprived of basic amenities hence, suffer from stark poverty, starvation, illiteracy and poor health. Due to lack of literacy and education, Birhors live in oblivion of their basic rights and unable to express their feeling before society.  In the given situation, District Administration felt need of a Tanda and people centred programme to be initiated in Giridih district so that the comprehensive development of Birhors could be ensured without hampering their socio – cultural outlook.

Deputy Commissioner of Giridih district, Ms. Vandana Dadel, personally took interest in the matter and visited Birhor Tandas to gauge the existing situation in which Birhors are bound to live. She asked officers of all concerned departments to visit these tandas and try to develop a plan for each and every tanda so that we can stitch plans of different departments and make it a comprehensive and convergent development plan for Birhors.

On the basis of availability of manpower and other resources, the Education Department / Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan were adjudged as nodal agency for the programme. Different departments including RCH presented a work plan for health intervention in Birhor tandas. Meanwhile, Education Department asked Vanvasi  Vikas Ashram to conduct household survey of five Birhor tandas and identify major problems and issues need to be taken care off during comprehensive planning process.  Later, District Commissioner, Ms, Vandana Dadel called meeting of all concerned officials of different departments and decided to initiate a comprehensive development programme for Birhors living in five tandas of Bagodar and Saria blocks.

The Deputy Commissioner of Giridih district, Ms. Vandana Dadel has taken it as one of the innovative concept where all concerned departments come together and work in a concerted manner so that the target of comprehensive development of near - extinction primitive tribe group, Birhor in Giridih district could be ascertained and the convergent development model could be presented before state as well as country. The role of Education department in putting initial fuel and momentum to the highly ambitious project is significant. The involvement of NGOs further consolidates the field level involvement and commitment of the district administration.
