About International Task Force for the Rural Poor (INTAF)
International Task Force for the Rural Poor, INTAF International Task Force for the Rural Poor (INTAF) International Task Force For The Rural Poor, known as INTAF, was set up following the recommendation of an international seminar on "working with The Rural Poor'', held in a village in India, in Dec. 1988. INTAF was born out of the realisation that the number of rural poor and the extent of rural poverty are both on the increase. Even the most well-intentioned policies of various governments to uplift the rural poor have either failed or proved ineffective. INTAF is an international organisation which seeks to achieve recognition among the world community, for the plight of the rural poor which include the most exploited, oppressed and ignored people of the world. They include tribals, untouchables, the landless, marginal and small farmers. The aims of INTAF are : To identify policies, programmes and projects that are contributing most to the all-round development of the rural poor. To publicise these policies, programmes and projects and to help make them as effective as possible. To monitor and evaluate the progress of these policies, programmes and projects.
