To Coordinate Relief Effort
After the 2002 riots, thousands of victims were left homeless, hungry, and hurt. Many of these victims received support from NGOs and individuals. However, they were also lost in the disconnected web of these various help groups. SPRAT recognized the need for coordination between all sectors and, as its first major event, organized the Tripartite Convention on May 18th, 2002 in Ahmedabad.
Held less than two months after the riots, the Tripartite Convention provided a venue for organizations to present their services to victims, as well as to fellow relief groups. Additionally, victims, represented by relief camp workers and organizers, expressed their needs and concerns.
Illuminating areas of overlap and areas of continued need, the convention was an integral part of optimizing the breadth of resources available for relief work in Ahmedabad, and
SPRAT adjudged the best Small NGO of Western India, and one of the 13 best, all India, by the Resource Alliance - Nand and Jeet Khemka Foundation for 2007.
