Friends, join us for the 11th Vikalp Varta: Resilience of Collaborative 
Markets and Indigenous Self-reliance, Nilgiris, India

 From bonded labourers to tea plantation owners. From living in 
scattered isolated hamlets, to having their own strong representative 
organisation – the AMS. From shying away from modern health care and 
education to having their own community hospital and school. It's been a 
35-year long march towards self-reliance for the adivasis of Gudalur.

When tea prices crashed, the AMS together with three other community 
groups set up the Just Change India Producer Company - an initiative to 
create an alternative market system where producers, consumers, and 
investors work together in mutually beneficial ways by trading their 
products with each other.  A market where everybody makes a living and 
no one makes a killing.

Stan Thekaekara and Anil Misquith from ACCORD <http://ashwini.org/new/> 
and Just Change <http://justchangeindia.com>, pivotal organisations in 
this journey to self-reliance will share their experiences and insights.
