Malayali Tribal are one among such groups and are found largely in Eastern Ghats stretches;Kolli Hills of Namakkal District, Tamilnadu, India. These communities are farm dependent coolies and estate workers in large. They find scarce employment locally, mostly coolie in nature and tend to migrate to nearby states like Kerala and Karnataka for coolie works in large farms and estates, mostly 6 months in year. Also 75 % of people are illiterate , malnourished and found frequently sick. Frequent migrations has also let the families deserted and high risk to opportunistic infections like HIV/AIDS etc.
Children of these communities are most affected, who often are left behind in the villages under the care of elders or relatives and also many time taken along the parents for farm coolie works during migration. Lack of proper parental care, nutrition and education has left the children in great agony. These children often drop out from school and are much low educated. It is very much scarce that a child has ever cross 8th grade in schooling. This is high among the girl children, who drop out to take care of their siblings or undertake the family chores in absence of their parents.Most of these girl children are victims of sexual harassment or get married too young.
