Who we are
In response to the growing threat of indigenous cultural erosion due to modernisation in Arunachal Pradesh, the Donyi Polo Cultural and Charitable Trust was established with a crucial mission. This trust is dedicated to preserving, promoting, and transmitting the time-honoured customs and traditions of the region's indigenous communities. Addressing the generational gap caused by technological advances and evolving lifestyles, the trust set up the Nyubu Nyvgam Yerko school in Mwya, village Pulyi, Arunachal Pradesh. This Gurukul-style institution, operating since 2022, offers a holistic education by integrating the CBSE curriculum with teachings on indigenous values and cultural practices. Catering to students from the Nyishi tribe, the school not only imparts knowledge but also nurtures a profound connection to the Nyishi heritage, nurturing a resilient cultural identity while preparing students for modern challenges. The Nyubu Nyvgam Yerko School serves as a beacon of inspiration for indigenous educational initiatives in the region, safeguarding indigenous traditions in the face of change.
Our work and its impact
The Donyi Polo Cultural and Charitable Trust is wholeheartedly committed to safeguarding and promoting the vibrant indigenous culture of Arunachal Pradesh. With a strong focus on education, we aim to transmit cultural values to the younger generation, ensuring the preservation of their heritage. In remote areas like Mwya, access to early education is crucial. We believe education is a universal right and through schools like Mwya's, we provide children with a nurturing environment that fosters a deep appreciation for their culture, empowering them to shape a brighter future while preserving their invaluable indigenous legacy.
How we will utilise these books
While the school is still in its early stages, the enthusiasm and eagerness of the students to learn and grow are truly inspiring. Despite their age, these young students are determined to become model students and pave the way for the upcoming batches. The storybooks from Pratham Books explore a wide variety of themes and will empower the kids to explore new horizons. A generous contribution of funds to our crowdfunding campaign will play a crucial role in shaping their minds. These books will not only sharpen their ideas but also expose them to new concepts, diverse perspectives, and a wealth of wisdom that they require to thrive. Your support will play a pivotal role in nurturing the next generation of the Nyishi tribe.
