Once a vast kingdom spanning a great swathe  of the country this region was renowned for its rich culture and architecture,  its centres of learning, its military strength and maritime trade links with  countries further East as much as for its luxuriant flora and fauna. There is  much to learn about Odisha and its magnificent ancient civilization but unfortunately  its status today reads like a study in contrasts. Home to a large population of  tribal and marginalized people, it was an obvious choice for our work as you  can see from the statistics below:
