MISSION & HISTORY.
“The objective of the Foundation is to preserve, nurture, and promote culture and right value system that would make a positive impact on the youth’s outlook”
Abhyudaya Foundation was established in December, 1998 with a corpus of Rs. 5 crore contributed by Mr. B.M. Rao, Chairman of the foundation. The primary objective is to create a better tomorrow for the children of today.
The Foundation aims at upholding the "Bharatiya Sanskriti" right from the childhood in a righteous path and to transfer the same to the coming generation.
A few of Abhyudaya Foundation activities: A Model Girls High School at Pithapuram on a 5-acre land at a cost of Rs. 1 crore, the objective being a girl educated, not only the family educated, but the "society as well"; a library; a community hall. Recently provided infrastructure facility for a children NICU (for new borns) and a full ! edged 4-bed ICU with all amenities and equipments at the CMC Hospital at Pithapuram.
“The very ‘Sankalp’ behind the Foundation and its activities is the divine order of Lord Venkateswara and hence this is His work. As His instrument I have commenced this work which I humbly dedicate to - My Dear Parents, Sadguru, my teachers, my family members, my employers, my friends, and to all those who have been an inspiration to me during the last 80 years and more. Last but not the least, the Foundation’s work is also dedicated to all those who have a concern for the society and who have been promoting, nurturing the Indian Culture and Arts, and right value system among all sections of the society, especially the youth who are the future of this country.

‘‘JJanani Janmabhoomishcha Swargaadapi Gariyasi”
In Sanskrit it means: mother and motherland mean more than heaven; and it means more than the world to BMR himself. Beginning with the renovation of the centuries-old “Kunthi Madhavaswamy” temple, the Foundation also built a library and a community hall at Pithapuram … and the good work goes on till today…
