Why the Slum Area has Been Selected ?

The main thrust of the Society vision is “Cities Without Slums.” The state capital of Andhra Pradesh is Hyderabad District has many areas are SLUM AREAS in the Heart of the city. Slum People are living in below Poverty line.

They are illiterate, facing constantly health problems and do not have adequate work on hand and as well as no opportunities to increase their PERMANENT income sources. Most of them are rag pickers, beggars and daily wage workers waiting for work on local “Addas” (hiring of manpower on daily wage basis is called Addas) and living in unhygienic conditions in slums..

Hence, the society urges upon to focus on their problems and eradicate the practice of begging and provide an opportunity to become educate, Self Reliant and provide basic facilities through Education & Training & self-employment programmes. Hence, the society prefers to work in Slum and weaker section area in the heart of the city i.e., Hyderabad district.

Why Rural mandals in Rangareddy district is selected ?

The main vision of Society is “Environment Education for all” and also bridge the gap between Government and Rural Community Welfare developmental programmes. The out skirts of Hyderabad District is a polluted Industrial zones in all ways (North, East, West and South). the Industrial Zones are encompasses several major chemical industries and host many pharmaceutical industries.

As an inevitable consequence of concentration of so many industries the whole stretch of villages & hamlets in and around of Rangareddy Mandals are subjected to chaotic proportions of Air, Water & Soil Pollution  due to constant emission of obnoxious vapors and hazardous chemical effluents of these industrial units day in and day out. It is not an exaggeration to say that the entire area stinks and the effect is felt even by casual visitors.

Hence, the Rangareddy Mandals has been selected to work on Health, Environment, Women & Children Welfare and also the Rural Development programmes based on the economic situation  of the Mandals. In Rangareddy District has 32 mandals and each mandal consist of an average 25 villages including Hamlets and Tandas. It is a distance of 20 Kms. range distance and 50 Kms. maximum distance from the Capital City - Hyderabad District.
