Every monthly donation helps people like Thirupathaiah with livelihood
Thirupathaiah was a tribal fisherman from Parvathipuram, Andhra Pradesh. He had a limited income as he used angler hooks which caught one fish at a time. He could not afford fishing nets that caught large catchment of fish at once. On days, when he couldn't catch enough fish, they went hungry.
Through a survey, CERDS learnt that Thirupathaiah struggled with lack of a proper livelihood source. They provided him with a nylon multifilament fishing net that caught large numbers of fish. This small help has made a huge difference in his income and he is now able to meet his family's basic needs.
Donate to a fishing net and you can help a family improve their living conditions and have two meals a day.

What the beneficiary gets
Chaithanya Educational and Rural Development Society (CERDS) is an NGO based out of Guntur, Andhra Pradesh which works with tribal welfare. Through this programs, they have adopted 12 tribal communities from 5 villages where the living conditions are very poor.
The primary objective of this programme is to help tribal fisher folk earn a stable income through welfare schemes like employment generation through the provision of fishing nets.Almost 90% of these families catch fish by their traditional practices and hence manage a small catch with a lot of time and energy. It is also not possible to do deep water fishing because of unavailability of fishing nets. Beneficiaries are selected through field visits, enquiring with the local community and personal verification of socio-economical conditions.
Around 300 scheduled tribe families dependent on fishing for a source of income. Donate to this cause and because of you, a family will secure their livelihood.
