Overview

Education determines the quality of an individual’s life. We believe that quality education is the best gift one can give to children from low-income households. Apart from providing opportunities for upward mobility, education enables individuals to meaningfully engage in political, economic, social, technological, environmental and legal spheres.

Dr. Reddy’s Foundation’s interventions in education started in 1998. Over 5000 children who were forced into child labour were rescued and enrolled in public schools.

Currently, the foundation’s education initiatives strive to provide affordable high-quality education, improve the academic and non-academic outcomes and impart employment oriented vocational skill training.

Our Initiatives

To make quality education accessible to all, the Kallam Anji Reddy Vidyalaya at Chandanagar (Hyderabad) was set up in 2001 and has over 2250 students from Kindergarten to Grade X. The co-education school follows the state’s SSC syllabus and offers instruction in English medium. The school also assists students who successfully clear the Class X Board Examinations to get admission in government / private junior colleges or vocational junior colleges.

DRF’s School Improvement Program (SIP) was launched in 2011 with the aim of providing quality education to children residing in the vicinity of Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories at Bachupally. Starting with just 11 schools, SIP has grown steadily over the years, with more than 65,286 students enrolled in 229 schools today. SIP supports Government schools in various academic and non-academic projects, such as remedial support for enhanced academic outcomes, scholarship to meritorious students, sports and co-curricular activities for overall student development and health education.

SIP uses a three-pronged strategy to address education holistically.

  • Provides students with an enabling learning environment
  • Supports schools with appropriate infrastructure
  • Encourages talent and facilitates growth.
