Nandyal is a town in Kunrool District, Andhra Pradesh India. The town was originally called Nandalluru. It had a population of 200,746 as per 2011 census record. The environmental infrastructure in the slums is very poor and most slums lack basic civic amenities, like proper roads, drainage, protected water supply, streetlights and toilet facilities. Studies show that the most common disease prevalent in slums, include gastro enteritis, malaria, diarrhea, malnutrition, ring worm etc., there is a dire need to strengthen health infrastructure.
Many of the poor families have been migrating to Nandyal from Villages for their livelihood. They have been settling in the outskirts, paraments, behind drainage canals open public places of Nandyal and have been engaging in daily wage labour works, particularity house construction, factory work, transportation, carpentry, motor mechanical work, due to the failure of agricultural works in rural areas. By this migrated people, Nandyal town is over populated and must to shift them to some other places and as such new colonies were erected in slum areas, in the outskirts of Nandyal. They are poverty stricken people. Their social status is poor among the poorest. Under these circumstances. The Mother Society, the Voluntary Organization has adopted three villages, Nandamur Nagar, Poluru and Sambavaram, where these settlers are inhabited to provide the minimum needed facilities such as education health and other needy things.
Keeping in view the social, Economical Educational and cultural conditions, the proposed project is focused for the welfare of the down trodden people by establishing the primary school Heath centers and to provide the nutrition food and special care for the empowerment of girl children.
