Who would benefit through Points for People?
At the outset, the communities that will benefit through Points for People will be tribal individuals and tribal women-led groups covered under the Central India Initiative. One of the flagship initiatives of the Tata Trusts, this initiative strives to bring tribal households irreversibly out of poverty through increased life choices.
A nodal agency called Collectives for Integrated Livelihood Initiatives (CInI), established by the Trusts, will facilitate and advance this mission.
