Description

This provocative program visits an isolated rural community in Tamil Nadu to look at the causes of rural poverty. It investigates the role of land ownership, subsistence farming, the caste system, climate, globalisation, lack of access to basic services and the plight of women. This program reveals the impacts of this poverty and what life is like in a poor rural area. It goes on to suggest various ways this poverty can be alleviated, including: providing better access to education and health, improving farming methods, micro-credit schemes aimed at women and care of the orphan Elders left behind in rural areas.
