Area of operation AASHA operates its activities in the whole of Surguja and Koria districts of Chhattisgarh State. Both the districts are Scheduled Tribal Area, under PESA.

Prog. : 160 Awareness on Human Trafficking : 75 In 159 Panchayats total number of villages covered by ASHA is: 512 Community Organization: Tribal Development Program- The Tribal Development Program aims at promoting sustainable community organization in 155 tribal hamlets of the Surguja and Koriya districts, leading to improved level of subsistence and accompanying a low profile socio-economic, political and cultural empowerment process. The communities have been organised into small neighbourhood groups, in which they work together in their agricultural fields, thus minimising their labour cost and optimising their work output. These neighbourhood groups are also functioning as Self Help Groups. The important aspect of these groups is, that, both men and women are the members, although their savings are separate. All the group members come together when they have to help each other in their fields. Mutual love and cooperation and support are the impact of the this programme. Integrated watershed development programmme Low and scanty rainfall due to deforestation is the main cause of drought, which results in migration of the people in search of work. The topography of the area is very undulating with rolling slope ranges, very steep slopes in uplands, which are mostly degraded forestland and gentle slopes in the valley area. Heavy soil erosion is a major problem resulting in the loss of top fertile soil. Water does not percolate because of the steep slopes. In most part of the operational area soil is sandy with gravel, with very high rate of permeability causing total dryness in the soil, immediately after rainfall. The runoff water achieving very high speed damages the crops. Rainwater is the only source of water available for agriculture due to lack of irrigation facilities. The rainfall is very unpredictable and erratic and the crop yields are very low due to frequent failure of monsoon. The only possibility of assuring continuous supply of water for agriculture is to bring up the water level by rainwater harvesting. We concentrate on creating awareness on water management and water preservation among the farming communities. Various measures of preserving water like – farm bunding, outlet,spillway, nala bunding, diversion bunding, gully plug, bori bandhan, half moon pit, contour bunding, check dam, farm pond, pond deepening, canal, check wall, percolation tank, irrigation well, land levelling, staggered contour trenches, staggered pit, 5% model etc. have been taken up in many villages. Tribal Livelihood System Improvement Program Tribal livelihood system improvement programme covers 160 tribal villages in both the districts. The people being farmers solely depend on agriculture for their livelihood. Very ancient and traditional methods of agriculture are practiced in this area, which the people are reluctant to give up. The main focus of the programme is to promote organic and sustainable farming by encouraging farmers to prepare farmyard manure, compost and wormi-compos
