I am John Nagella form Andhra Pradesh, India. I am working with the Chenchus indigenous people of the Nallamala Forest of the of the Krishna River Valley to check and reverse their Poverty and Poverty related issues through conserving the Natural Resources and the biodiversity of the Krishna River Valley.
Chenchus were identified as Indigenous People by UN and the Government of India identified as Primitive Tribal Groups.
Chenchus are in food gathering and pastoral stage.
Chenchus' population is dwindling because of their innate nature of inseparableness with the Nature, which is not able to support the Chenchus with enough food, because it is also ailing, and becoming scanty.
