About Us  

Genesis and Status
It is the irresistible humanitarian and humanist concern of Rev. Fr.Francis D’Cruz, a dedicated, tirelessly active and lovable clergy of Kurnool Diocese, to champion the cause of the poor and destitute of the fellow beings, through authenticated democratic, secular and legal structure, which resulted in founding the organisation. The Organisation obtained the status of a juristic person in the year 1976, by registration under charitable Societies Registration Act, 1860. It has a General Body having socially committed men and women, drawn from different walks of life. Its overall management is with the Governing Body, elected and constituted by an Executive Director, in close conjunction with another Director, both being ex-officio members in the Governing Body.

Socially, Politically, Economically& Environmentally Healthy, Harmonious and Just Society.

To empower the powerless to build up such a Society.
Siding with the powerless to unleash their fettered but inherent dynamism and strength to place themselves in the broad-way of growth, amply fueled and fired to move ahead and build up pro-progress environs, ensuring a harmonious society where social, political, economic, educational, cultural, in-family & inter-family and gender justice, equity,  (possibly) equality and play of good conscience, rule the roost.

Integrated, Participatory and Sustainable.
