NGO Profile :
Outreach Association of Volunteers for Rural Development (OUTREACH) was established to work with vulnerable rural communities to enable them to organise themselves into viable institutions and to empower them. It operates in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Telangana, and Tamil Nadu.

Their activities include:

  • Social Forestry: With the support of ITC Ltd, the project has promoted plantations in 9,000 acres of land in Khammam district and also promoted formation of Community Based Organizations. As an income generation activity, the Subabul nursery was started in FY15 and nearly 11 lakh saplings were supplied to the farmers at a cost of Re1/- per sapling. They already have a stock of 6 lakh saplings for distribution for the coming year.
  • Tank Rehabilitation: With support from ITC Ltd, OUTREACH works to increase the water holding capacity of the tanks & pond areas, groundwater recharge from farm ponds, and using this water for irrigation during critical times.
  • Watershed Development: It aims at poverty alleviation of the rural population. Training is imparted to the community and they are organized into Committees to take up activities like stabilisation of drainage line, soil conservation, and horticulture crop & fodder production in the watershed areas. It is supported by the Government and ITC Ltd.
  • Joint Forest Planning and Management:  In collaboration with the Government, the programme aims at participation of local communities in enhancing the forest cover. It motivates people towards forest conservation, protection, and development, by organizing communities into Self-Help Groups (SHGs).
  • Micro Finance & Livelihood: The primary objective is improved livelihood, and income & food security to the small holder communities, especially in the context of climate change adaptation. SHGs are encouraged to take up income generating activities like basket making, bee keeping, manufacturing areca plates, sheep rearing, etc. OUTREACH has been facilitating the SHGs’ access to economic resources through credit linkage with banks and wherever the support is not adequate, extended its micro credit funds supported by Donors in the form of revolving funds.
  • Women Empowerment: With the support of ITC Ltd, OUTREACH supports women by training them in different skills and provide better livelihood options, healthcare facilities, linkages of women SHGs with banks, etc.
