We work in the state of Telangana in south India. The districts under the area of operation are:

  •  Nalgonda
  •  Suryapet
  •  Yadadri
  •  Ranga Reddy
  •  Mahaboob Nagar
  •  Suburbs and slum areas of Hyderabad

Target people consist of daliths, tribals and minorities. A majority of the inhabitants are nomadic and semi-nomadic, illiterate and ignorant. VRDS envisages to work with marginalized poor sections of our society.

Generally these families are big, consisting of parents and four more children. Joint families is a common custom. Planned parenthood is not honored because they consider many children as an asset to the family income generation.
