About PORGAI

Porgai group is a society of about 60 women belonging to the Lambadi community. The Lambadi women here stopped doing their Traditional embroidery 2-3 generations back, since they gradually stopped wearing their traditional dress. For the last 5-6 years, they have joined together, learned the craft and revived it. This will give the women independent income being in the village and also prevent migration.PORGAI is an effort to revive the art of traditional embroidery of the Lambadi women,in an attempt to provide livelihoods for women in the Sittilingi valley. This craft is the pride of the Lambadi people, and hence their cloth products with exquisite embroidery on contemporary cloth products is called ‘Porgai’ (meaning pride in the Lambadi dialect).

The PORGAI group is supported by the Tribal Health Initiative (THI). Tribal Health Initiative is a health programme in Sittilingi valley and Kalrayan hills in Tamil Nadu (www.tribalhealth.org). We have a secondary level hospital run by the trained local women and men. We also have a community health programme run by the trained local women. We firmly believe that for a community to be healthy, it has to work at the determinants of health, since agriculture, nutrition, food security as well as employment opportunities leading to economical stability are essential to health.
