Can technology help them prove it's their land?

In the national forests of Gujarat, India, the tribal people have been seen as encroachers, thieves who dare to produce food for their families on land claimed by the government. Rama Bhai and his family have worked land in the Sagai village for generations.

Sagai has no electricity, no running water. No one kept records of who was farming which plots of land. So when the laws changed and they were allowed to claim the land, they faced a challenge – how could they prove they'd been farming specific plots in the past?

The technology we use to find our way to unfamiliar places came to their rescue. Learn how GPS operates, and how it, along with Google Maps, saved the day for the poorest of the poor in India.
