Friends Foundation

Our support is creating opportunities for the youth so that they not only learn to perform their talent but also spread the rich Indian culture among other communities in the western world.


Promoting Indian Culture, Tradition, and Fine Arts: In addition to education, infrastructure, poverty relief, and health assistance, Nannapaneni Mohan & Friends Foundation is very keen to promote the arts and cultural advancement. We are helping some non-profit organizations to teach Indian classical dances to children. The foundation has sponsored numerous cultural events, competitions, and festivals through various organizations and on its own, both in India and the USA.

Preservation of Ancient & Traditional Handcrafts:
SPN arts & Crafts Promotion Trust in Tamil Nadu state takes around 50 unemployed youths from nearby rural villages and trains them free of cost in various ancient Indian arts like wood carving, stone sculpture, and traditional painting. When the students complete a rigorous four-year training program, they become fine artisans or craftsmen. Their training ensures they can earn a living while also ensuring the survival of ancient Indian handcrafts.
We are contributing several lakhs of rupees to this organization. Our intention is to promote and pass on our traditional handicrafts to future generations by teaching and producing highly skilled artisans, creating employment opportunities as well. The foundation is a proud supporter of this organization.

Indian Cultural Associations: 
Mohan Nannapaneni & Shama Nannapaneni donated more than $100,000 to various Indian cultural associations. This shows the interest of Mr. & Mrs. Nannapaneni in Indian culture and social activities.
We are financially supporting Bhadradri Kalabharathi, a cultural organization so that it can conduct state-level cultural competitions every year. We sponsored other organizations as well to conduct various cultural programs that promote Indian classical dances and music.
