Thus community participation, education, protection and promotion of environment and social capital are central to the activities of the organisation. Emphasis on children, women and environment are major areas of attention of CARPED’s action research interventions that provide space for the participation and engagement of the stakeholders in analysis and change of the conditions forming the milieu of the people with whom CARPED works. Thus the target women are partners in the interventions and important stakeholders. CARPED emphasizes on making policies people oriented.

CARPED has been active in the areas of preventing displacement of the tribal communities, environment education and legal aid as part of larger networks, during the first five years. CARPED has initiated activities in Kowdipally mandal of Medak since 1994 with focus on woman and child issues and participatory community development based on natural resource management (NRM). Besides, it continued active involvement in networks, campaigns and movements to facilitate people’s development in varied spheres.
