Adivasis, (also referred to as Tribal or Scheduled Tribes) are spread across the central, northeast, and southern regions of India. Along with being geographically and socially isolated, the Adivasi groups have historically been politically under-represented. Their regions of residence also have been economically under-developed.
Rose Bakery set up a small stall which will be operated by the program participants themselves. This stall is strategically located by the busy Garratola Road and is about 500 metres away from Rose Bakery. It will open from 9am to 5pm Mondays to Fridays.
The operations of this stall are part of its training to equip the program participants with entrepreneurial skills.
On Saturday, 23 June 2018, a simple and meaningful inauguration ceremony was held to officially open the stall. This ceremony was attended by the program participants, Good Shepherd sisters, mission partners and friends in Garratola.
