WHO WE ARE

MYRADA is a non-government organisation started in 1968 working in backward and drought-prone areas. We work with more than a million families in 18 districts of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, forming and strengthening community based organisations (CBOs), promoting livelihood activities, management and development of natural resources, improving health and education status of the community and building capacities of the community to raise and manage resources independently. We also work with governments and other donors/partners to influence policies in favour of the poor.

OUR HISTORY

OUR WORK

LIVELIHOOD

‘Livelihoods’ is at one of MYRADA’s interventions. A domain with links to every other domain of our work, securing livelihoods has been our major concern even from the days of the Tibetan resettlement.

NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

‘To recreate self-sustaining and environmentally clean habitat and the institutions to sustain it, based on a balanced perspective of the relationship

HEALTH AND SANITATION

The quality of service of public health care in rural areas is very poor and continues to decline. Several studies reveal that most poor people depend on private health services, often slipping deeper into poverty as a result.

EDUCATION/VOCATIONAL EDUCATION

MYRADA has been involved in education in all its projects. It has provided supplementary teachers in short-staffed primary schools, supported tuition centres in maths and English.

CAPACITY BUILDING

Training, capacity building and networking has been a critical part of MYRADA’s approach to improve its interventions and to spread its proven strategies to other parts of the country and abroad.
