Summary

The Activists for Social Alternatives (ASA) is a not-for-profit non-governmental organization (NGO) registered as a public charitable trust, working for the development of poor in the drought prone, poverty ridden area of central Tamilnadu (TN).

ASA formed Sanghas and/or societies of such people and built sustainable institutions out of such groups through education, conscientization, skill based training and capacity building and lobbying and advocacy. Watershed was the entry point activity during the initial years. During the developmental efforts ASA has undertaken and implemented several relief activities including drought relief and flood relief activities. Through the 20 years of close association with the community at grassroots ASA hasacquired competence in building sustainable Community Based Institutions, owned and managed by the people for their benefit.
