ASSCOD recently started a project called “Rice to Challenge Initiative”.

We identified 3000 tribal families in Kancheepuram District, Tamil Nādu and these families are struggling hard for three meals a day due to monsoon failure/job loss/poverty. So, our idea is to provide rice for 3 months to the tribal families and to provide livelihood training/funding initiating livelihood activities and extending hand hold support for one year so that they will start having adequate earnings to meet their basic needs on their own.

We launched this programme on 21st May and this programme was completed in April 2018.
