Kachhi Community Development Association 
History of KCDA  
Rev. Shamoon Samuel transformed the idea into some educational songs that are still used by KCDA workers for community mobilization. Rev. Shamoon identified that the Kachhi people were unwilling to work together due to a lack of confidence and initiative ability. He shared this situation with John Mitchell from New Zealand and suggested the idea to buy some land for Kachhi people to get settled, have their own income and not have to be dependent on a landlord.  

In 1998, Mr. Mitchell sent some money for the Kachhi people. Although it was not enough to buy a piece of land, this seed money resulted in the beginning of the organization. The year 2000 was the planning year, where it was decided to focus on primary education as the way-out of the existing situation.  
The KCDA started its activities in 2002, having several years of experience in working with the Kachhi people with work focusing on their issues. KCDA began its work running community-based mother tongue education programmes.  
KCDA has well established systems which are controlled by different levels of management. Here are some details of its board of director who:
