Bhadadri Kothagudem district in Telangana has around 149 tribal hamlets in the Kinerasaani forest reserve, and in and around the Palwancha Forest Reserve. There are over 30,000 Gond Adivasis spread over these hamlets.
These hamlets lack basic amenities such as electricity, roads and drinking water. Situated inside the deep interiors of Kinerasaani forest, these hamlets are disconnected from the world. This consequently has a crippling impact on the tribe of Guttikoya Adivasis residing there and which creates an urgent need to address the crisis.

40.6% ST population lived below the poverty line as against 20.5% of the non-tribal population. 65% of tribal women in the 15-49 years age group suffer from anemia. The rate of institutional delivery is the lowest among tribal women (70.1%). Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) for ST population in 2014 was 44.4.
Under-five Mortality Rate was 57.2 per 1000 live births. Among total deaths due to Malaria, 50% of deaths are from the Tribal population. The prevalence of underweight is almost one and a half times in tribal children than in the others. Only about 25% pregnant and lactating women and 29-32% children had adequate intakes of both protein and calories.

At present, there are 75 tribal groups identified and categorized as Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups.
The dilemma in our constituency:
· Unpottable water
· Lack of nutritious diets
· Absence of sufficient healthcare facilities
· Lack of access to the existing healthcare
· High Infant and maternal mortality
· Mortality due to lack of preventive care
· Low school attendance by children

Our Aims:

 Establish clinic with Furniture, Lab equipment, Medicines, two Health worker, Doctor, medical equipment running on solar energy, Bike ambulance . Have a steady supply of food, supplements and also having the community grow their own food. Up to now a clinic with basic equipment, a bike ambulance and a healthcare worker have been employed. 1000 kgs of rice and 200 kgs of pulses is constantly stored at Kranti Nagar.
Encourage the children in the community to join school. Up to now admission was achieved for about 84 Tribal children to Ashram high school, Markood village.
Watersupply to all is the aim for this! So far IDO has carried out projects for the construction of dug wells and check dam. Water rollers have been distributed. Solar lights and fans have been distributed in 36 homes.
