1. What is TDF?
TDF-USA is a not-for-profit organization created to provide a platform for People of Telangana Origin (POTOs) to come together to discuss various problems faced by Telangana people. Telangana is a region in south-central India, forming the northern part of the present-day state of Andhra Pradesh. The region has a rich tradition of culture and language with powerful expressions and sophisticated narratives. History, language, and dialect have molded Telangana sensibilities and identity. In spite of the abundant natural resources such as great rivers, fertile land, rich forest and mineral resources, Telangana today presents a desolate picture of poverty, endemic political violence and environmental devastation. The people of Telangana have been left behind in many areas of socio-economic development for various reasons. Betrayal of Telangana region and its people by successive governments, over many decades, aided and abetted by Telangana leaders, has contributed to this misery.

2. Who are we?
We area people of Telangana origin working towards the development of Telangana. We help any individual or group, political, non-political working for the development of Telangana.

3. What we do?
TDF-USA organizes seminars and community events to bring people together and educate ourselves about problems faced by Telangana people. TDF is also involved in voter education campaign during elections in Telangana. TDF-USA is also involved in organizing cultural and family events to help strengthen community bonds among Telangana people in USA. TDF will assist individuals and organizations that may want to take up charitable developmental activities in Telangana. TDF will take up organization development activities by building local chapters in major cities across USA and may assist with development of international communities similar to that of TDF-USA.

4. TDF Objectives:
