Introduction / History

The Atollu live in Andhra Pradesh. Their name comes from performing one act plays which they do not do so much now. They speak, read and write in Telugu. They are not vegetarians who eat rice.

The Atollu have birth and marriage rituals. The bereaved and divorced can marry again. The dead are buried. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home.

The Atollu work mostly as laborers now. The women collect firewood and help with financial matters. They have a council to look after them. Their education level is low, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.

Prayer Points

* Pray that Indian Christians will lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
