Athma Shanthi was started in 1992 by Peter John with a group of tribals in Shevaroyan hills (Yercaud) parts of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. With the goal of empowering the tribals to the extent that they, as a community, initiate and control the process of change in their lives, Athma Shanthi adopts a holistic approach to tribal development.
