Who we are : About MARAG
In 1994 MARAG took its first steps in two blocks Sayla and Chotila of Surendrangar District in Gujarat. MARAG was established at the time when pastoralists were not recognized as development actors and there was no other organisation working exclusively with them. Those initial steps today have shaped into a movement of the pastoralists in Gujarat and outside.
MARAG works on a three pillar approach - 'Right to Governance, Education and Livelihoods' - to fulfill its mission. Working directly all over Gujarat, MARAG also facilitates networks and alliances nationally and globally.
Unfortunately the second oldest occupation of the world, Pastoralism is on a decline and on verge of extinction at many places. MARAG continues to strive with the pastoralists and their livestock.
