MESSS has helped many individual families to have a dignified life and provided drinking water and sanitation trainings for the last seven years. MESSS has worked with communities on Adult Literacy, Health preventive and curative aspects, Livelihood, Agriculture, Disaster Preparedness, Relief and rehabilitation programs, Environmental Issues & Vocational Training / upgrading of skills. MESSS continues to work with the poor, the weak, & the marginalized communities and have several ‘ready to go’ project plans to build on the great work already completed to reach other communities, but they urgently need funding to make things happen. ‘‘Securing funding within India is extremely difficult, particularly as we are LOWER CASTE, (scheduled caste DALIT) people’’ says Executive Director, Mr. Balaiah Avuluri. So he has been working tirelessly since 2013 to attract foreign funding to MESSS through Fr. Saimon Gudime from Europe.
