Template:Lead too short Navnirmaan is a tsunami response programme of Peoples Action for Rural Awakening for the tsunami-affected people of East Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh, South India.


Template:More footnotes The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake had a particularly devastating effect on the livelihoods of coastal communities in the South Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

After the tsunami, a perception holds that only deep sea fishing communities have been affected by the disaster. Other coastal communities, a majority of whom are Dalits and tribals, are not recognized by the government and civil society as being significantly affected.[1] The Dalits, tribals and Muslim communities, however, are dependent on primary fishing and/or farming communities, doing secondary and wage work.[no citations needed here] They are thus considered only marginal stake-holders and, in most cases, are invisible and uncounted. The Nanirmaan project addresses these neglect, discrimination and livelihood issues of the Dalitbahujan communities who have been affected.[2]

The program was implemented by Fr.Thomas Pallithanam and is the imprimatur, or director of Peoples Action for Rural Awakening. The development organization of the Protestant and Free Churches in Germany was set up in 1959 and supports numerous projects in the Southern hemisphere. Together with its local partner organizations in the respective countries Brot für die Welt campaigns to improve the living conditions of the poorest in the world and a fairer world order. The aim of the campaign is to fight for justice to the poor. As an aid agency, Bread for the World contributes to overcoming hunger, poverty and social need in almost all the developing countries by financing development projects of local partner organizations. People are supported in their capacity towards self-help.
