"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

The project addresses the issue of non-scheduled area villages in AP that have been recognised by the AP government to be included in the 5th schedule. Various activities have been taken by the 5th Schedule Sadhna commitee in this regard.





- The Revenue Divisional Officer of Peddapuram issued instructions to the sub registrars of Tuni and Prathipadu with the Ref B 452/2006, Dt.25.2.2006 with the subject that Registration of lands, Peddapuram Division should be stopped immediately as the issue of the inclusion of the non schedule area into the schedule area is under process with the Government of India. - What the Committee demands is that the same is to be implemented in the other districts too. - As a result of the work that has been since 2003 in this regard, now that even political parties like CPM speak of the issue and bring pressure on the government for the inclusion of the non schedule tribal villages in to the schedule area so that these tribes too might enjoy the privileges as the other tribes enjoy. They have even taken this issue to the notice of the President of India and Home Minister.





Formed with adivasi youth of non scheduled area villages in AP with the single demand to incorporate 796 tribal villages that the Government of AP recognized & sent a proposal to the Centre in 1980.
