Under the Ministry of Tribal Affairs' aegis, the TRIFED has launched the 'Sankalp Se Siddhi'-Village and Digital Connect campaign to improve the tribal ecosystem across the country. TRIFED stands for Tribal Cooperative Marketing Development Federation of India, and this is the body responsible for launching the Sankalp Se Siddhi initiative.

There are several Van Dhan Vikas Kendras across villages, and one of the primary objectives of the Sankalp Se Siddhi initiative is to activate all of these kendras. Once these centres are activated, it will be pretty easy to transform the tribal ecosystem of India.
