Abstract : Barapita is village located on the picturesque backdrop of chandaka forest in Khurda district of Odisha. It is the first 100% solar powered village in the state. People of Barapita who migrated from Jharkhand in the 1950s belong to the Ho tribe. The people in the village still practice open defecation even though they have toilets, due to the lack of awareness. This study focuses on the demographics, culture and the various problems faced by the people of Barapita. Ground zero report of the Community health Centre at Mendhasal was carried out and the information regarding the various facilities and treatment were collected. The study was done based on the Human Centered Design (HCD), Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) and interaction with the regional people.
