Primary Stakeholders

ADATS’ beneficiaries are 1,252 village level Coolie Sangha Units (CSUs) which are membership based organisations of 31,050 small and poor peasant families -- agricultural labourers, migrant workers, self-employed artisans, and small farmers who do not themselves employ wage labour.

Except when responding to rare emergencies, ADATS does not work with the individual poor, within the conventional social work or charitable mode, in any patronising manner.

Primary Stakeholders

Since the Coolie Sangha is a membership driven organisation with a strict internal structure and discipline, membership figures tend to fluctuate. Not all the families/villages are active at all times.

As on today 9,980 families, comprising a population of 54,477 adults and 12,257 minors, are active Members in 456 functioning Coolie Sangha Units. Another 13,872 non-CSU families benefit from the CDM projects that we implement.
