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