These Yanadi people are the poorest of the poor in the state, they do not have any property expect one pair of cloth one or two vessels for cooking and only one mat that is their property, not having good health, no proper food, no clothing and children also living in pathetic conditions. They lived under the trees, canal bunds and by the side of drainages. They have to walk miles together to enter the village that’s way these children have been loosing their education.

The men work in the village collecting the human waste and they should carry this and dumped out of the village. These Yanadi people have to collect this human waste daily, clean the village roads.

The women also have to wakeup at 4 am and reach the village to do the cleaning, sweeping, washing what not they have to do ever thing up to 11 am. Then these high caste people may give them last night left over food, they have take this food and feed their children and older people, this left rover food is for their lunch. Again they have started their work from 3 pm to 7 pm.

As we have already seen, S T means 'broken, scattered and oppressed'. So the S T is the broken and scattered people, the oppressed masses. This implies that they were of one community before they were broken; they were together before they were scattered; they were free people before they were oppressed. It also implies that there must have been an agent and an instrument by whom and by which this free people were oppressed. So the starting point of Scheduled Tribes (Yanadi people) history is the moment when this 'breaking', 'scattering' and 'oppression’ of the Scheduled Tribes( Yanadi people) began, when exactly the Scheduled Tribes( Yanadi people) began to be treated as degraded human beings and when exactly the Scheduled Tribes(Yanadi people) lost their identity. To understand the Scheduled Tribes (Yanadi people) as an indigenous people, we need to go to their historical roots.

We have idenetyfied hundereds of families and have been providing Houses, education, economical and self employment programs, women development and releasing them from the clutches of the moneylenders. FACT committed to provide all their needs trying to stand on their own legs.
