Lokhit Pashu Palak Sansthan 

Lokhit Pashu Palak Sansthan means “welfare organization for livestock keepers” in Hindi.

LPPS is a non-profit organization registered under the Rajasthan Societies Act. It was set up in 1996 to support Raika camel pastoralists in an acute crisis.

LPPS has its base in Sadri in Rajasthan, the drought-prone state in the west of India, where mobile livestock keeping has always been the mainstay of its rural people, especially its pastoralist societies.

A close relationship with animals is deeply embedded into Rajasthan’s rural culture, and the state is famous throughout India as home of the one-humped camel and superior indigenous livestock breeds.

LPPS aims to support rural livelihoods through participatory research and community implementation of sustainable land use practices. LPPS advocates for the rights and responsibilities of pastoralists & livestock keepers under national and international legal frameworks, including the Forest Rights Act and the UN Convention on Biological Diversity.

Camel Charisma is a social enterprise that aims to develop, promote and market environment friendly products from the camel. Founded in 2010 by two founders, Mr. Hanwant Singh Rathore & Dr. Ilse Kohler-Rollefson, Camel Charisma has been inspired by the experiences and close connection of Lokhit Pashu Palak Sansthan (LPPS) with Rajasthan’s camel pastoralists. It was set up as an outcome of a project by LPPS to revive Rajasthan’s camel husbandry for creating sustainable rural livelihoods in semi-arid and arid areas, as well as creating job income opportunities for the local communities.

The purpose of Camel Charisma is to provide economic incentives for camel breeders to continue keeping camels for their livelihood and to contribute to the sustainable management of the Thar Desert and conserve this biodiversity rich agro-ecosystem.
