Attappadi Tribal Development Project

For the past 2 years the active workers of the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation have been visiting Attapadi, a tribal area in the district of Palakkad in Kerala, for its development and have been able to bring up good results.

A newly built Anganvadi, located in Chindakki region of Agali panchayath in Attapadi, has been presented to the people by Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation on Dec 30, 2018.

There are various reasons as to why such a project may be delayed,

  1. Political Issues.
  2. Official issues.
  3. Obstacles due to certain laws.
  4. Greed amongst people.

We have been able to succeed overcoming these barriers.

Words by a native representative,

Though there are many ways to protect and preserve this village, nobody could initiate such a project. But, SSS org was able to deliver within a short period. We request you to provide furthermore services. We have been trying to put up an Anganvadi for so long, but nobody reached out except SSS org. We are greatful for the services.”

6 months back a survery was conducted by 50 Youth members of SSSSO at 19 different regions of Attapadi. One of the groups found an Anganvadi which we see in the picture attached. The setup was so tiny and built out of Plastic sheets and small pieces of wood. This inspired the construction of a new building with ample facilities.

The construction was completed within a period of 2 months. It was inaugurated by the All India President of SSSSO India, Sri. Nimesh Pandya and presented to the people. Various politicians, other officials and state office bearers of SSSSO were present. The tribal people welcomed them with their rituals.

Not only an Angvadi but we also provided toys for children, required furniture, and other basic necessities. The proposal for the top floor has also been approved by the AIP of SSSSO India. The State President Sri. Mukundan, National Service co-ordinator, Sri. Koteshwara Rao, also spoke at the venue and distributed school bag for the Children.

This project was able to unite the people of the region. We have decided to bring the people of the village to Puttaparthi at the earliest. More effort will be put in and the TDP will be relentlessly performed.
