The main objective of ASDS is to support the displaced tribals of Chattisgarh, who fled to the Andhra Pradesh (AP) border to escape violence.Since 2008, ASDS with AID's help is supporting the affected tribals with food, education, health services, drinking water, and dry ration.

Also, they make representations to government asking for nutritional support for the children through anganawadi, distribution of subsidized rice, appeal for employment for the tribals through rural employment programme and medical service through primary health care centers.

ASDS needs support to continue with the upliftment of the tribal community. The main reason being:-

1)Displaceme nt of the tribals has increased because of Operation Green-hunt.
2)Local tribals in AP are facing drought, which has reduced the possible wage labour in the agricultural sector.
3)Threats by Salwa Judum leaders in Khammam district (AP).

Support is provided in the following forms:
1)Feeding support to 350 beneficiaries, including children, lactating mothers, and pregnant women.
2) To provide education, food and accommodation (residential education) to around 200 children.
3) 2000 displaced tribal will be provided with periodical health care; 500 severely malnourished children will be referred to Nutrition and Rehabilitation Center, being run by the Government.
4)Two months dry ration support and drinking water facility.
5) Orientation and trainings to 50 displaced tribal youth on NREGA(National Rural Employment Guarantee Act).
6) Orientation and training for teachers and training on livelihood like basket making and leadership qualities.
