Over time, both governments and citizens alike have neglected public schools, which were once instrumental in propelling our country forward in global competition. However, we recognize that good schools are the bedrock of a strong and prosperous nation, and thus we are fully committed to revitalizing and enhancing the infrastructure of public education. By investing in our schools, we are investing in the future of our country, and ensuring that every student has access to the resources and support they need to succeed. Let us work together to rekindle the promise of public education, and pave the way for a brighter and more equitable future.
We have undertaken the formidable task of rebuilding several public schools, and it brings us immense pride to witness the joy and contentment in the eyes of the children who previously struggled with inadequate learning environments. Our efforts have had a transformative impact on the education landscape of rural India, benefitting thousands of children and providing them with access to quality education and essential amenities. We remain committed to continuing our work towards improving education infrastructure and empowering future generations through knowledge and opportunity.
The Nannapaneni Mohan and Friends Foundation’s scholarship program is designed to assist gifted students who may lack the financial means to pursue higher education.

By providing access to education for promising young minds, we strive to create a more equitable and just society, one in which every individual has the opportunity to achieve their fullest potential.

Sports play a crucial role in the development of children, offering them the chance to learn new skills, improve their physical fitness, and engage in healthy interactions with both teammates and competitors. As part of our commitment to promoting the growth and well-being of young people, we have constructed playgrounds, sponsored sports competitions, and donated sporting goods to numerous schools. By providing access to these resources, we hope to encourage more children to engage in physical activity, build social connections, and cultivate a lifelong love of sports and fitness.
Education is a powerful tool that can enhance an individual’s capacity to effect positive change, empowering them to overcome challenges with greater confidence and resilience. As an organization, we are committed to providing access to quality education for underprivileged children, so that they too may have the opportunity to build a better life for themselves. Through our efforts, we strive to narrow the gap in educational inequality, and ensure that every child, regardless of their background, has the chance to unlock their full potential and achieve their dreams.
We are proud to support organizations that are dedicated to promoting Indian languages, culture, and traditions. By providing our support, we aim to create opportunities for young people to not only develop their skills and talents, but also to share the rich and diverse heritage of Indian culture with communities across the Western world. We believe that by fostering greater understanding and appreciation for the traditions and customs of different cultures, we can build bridges of mutual respect and cooperation, and create a more harmonious and inclusive global community.
We have played a vital role in supporting the development of technical and vocational skills among hundreds of rural youth, enabling them to move beyond daily labor and become skilled workers. Through our support of various institutions and programs, we have helped to create new opportunities for young people to acquire the knowledge and expertise they need to succeed in today’s rapidly evolving job market. We take great pride in the positive impact that our efforts have had on the lives of so many, and remain committed to promoting skill development and vocational training as a means of fostering greater economic mobility and prosperity in the communities we serve.
Sports give children the opportunity to learn and practice new skills, to exercise to improve their strength and coordination, and to have healthy interactions with teammates and competitors.
