Set up in the year 1996 to support Raika pastoralists in crisis, Lokhit Pashu-Palak Sansthan or LPPS, is based in Sadri, in the drought-prone western state of Rajasthan, India.

The state is renowned for its one-humped camel and superior indigenous livestock breeds. LPPS’s work continues to be inspired by the association with the Raika pastoralists, but its goals have widened to embrace people-centred livestock development and the sustainable management of agro-ecosystems. LPPS’s activities include advocacy; training of livestock keepers in appropriate technologies; initiatives to save Raika heritage by documenting their traditional knowledge; and organising workshops and conferences on indigenous knowledge. LPPS is also a part of the LIFE Network of NGOs, the World Alliance of Mobile Indigenous People (WAMIP) and the Indian Pastoralist Network.
