Aahan Foundation works in the tribal areas of India and empowers the tribal girls to bring about a behavioural shift in the mindset of people towards the girls' issues. Working in such areas is challenging given the barriers of language, armed militancy, geographical isolation, lack of basic amenities and most importantly the trust deficit. Hence, Aahan works with S.M.A.R.T community to holistically deal with the issues of tribal girls and women. It stands for:
S: Sarpanch; members of the local self-government.
M: Media, Journalists and Stringers
A: Authority; BDO, Police etc
R: Religious Leaders; influential people respected by tribals
T: Tribal Families
