The organisation’s mission is to empower the powerless to build up a society that is socially, politically, economically, and environmentally healthy, as well as harmonous and just. Siding with the powerless to unleash their fettered but inherent dynamism and strength to place them in the broad-way of growth, amply fueled and fired to move ahead and build up pro-progress environs, ensuring a harmonious society where social, political, economic, educational, cultural, in-family and inter-family, gender justice, equity and (possibly) equality, and play of good conscience, rule the roost.
Having completed 25 years of service to the poor and to the village community, SDPPA has quantitatively and qualitatively grown and is moving ahead with infatigable competency to meet the challenges to be encountered in its pursuit of facilitating balanced, participatory, sustainable and integrated development of the poor in its operational areas, fighting poverty in all its ramifications and dehumanizing manifestations across the village community.
SDPPA organizes its work around four main objectives, namely:
1) Organising people and generating critical awareness among them on areas relating to social, political, economical, environmental aspects.
2) Upgrade and enhance the socio-economic status of women.
3) Ensure economic empowerment of the community organisation.
4) Promote environment awareness and improved agricultural practices.
SDPPA's beneficiaries include landless, small and marginal farmers, women and people with a disability.
