One of BCTs operational villages, Chuchikonda has a Community Action Group. Here the members and senior citizens have together formed a forum called “Memu saitam mana vuru kosam” (we are together for our village).

They have identified three problems and have been working on those. For the last five years, there is no bus facility to that village and the forum approached APSRTC depot manager at Anakapalli for extending the bus facility to their village. When they came to know that route losses were the cause of stopping service, the forum stepped up and assured to fill the loss every month. This got them bus facility.

Next, they cleared the roadsides wild-growth to allow easy commute of buses to that village. Another focus area has been education and they are now working to provide scholarships to poor children from class 1st to 10th.

They are also supporting one girl for B. Tech. education. Now they are working on total village sanitation and stopping usage of plastic bags by creating awareness through the students of BCT Residential High School
