Subhakar Rao Education Foundation - Origin and Purpose

Empowering Through Education

Education is key to development and to ensuring the betterment of society. We fund and facilitate the equipment, furniture and building that contribute to a learning environment.

We support NGOs operations that run education awareness programs. We fund for schools that provide knowledge and skill needed for disadvantaged children to compete in a global economy.

Despite Bangalore known as “Silicon Valley of India “over the past decade, many children in urban Bangalore still do not have access to quality school facilities and primary education. Various factors such as lack of sanitation facilities, no laboratories, ill-equipped libraries, dilapidated classrooms and poorly maintained buildings all contribute to lack of quality education.

Subhakar Rao Foundation assists by facilitating the building of government schools and equipments for school like computer - and providing basic facilities for students such as text books and notebooks. We help in upgrading the existing inadequate government primary and high schools.

The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 or Right to Education Act (RTE) makes education a fundamental right of every child between the ages of 6 and 14 and specifies minimum norms in elementary schools. Children in that age group will be will be entitled to quality education by the state with the help of families and communities.

Subhakar Rao’s NGO works with volunteers and interested parties to facilitate quality education for the underprivileged children in the society. We do this with our partners by lending all possible support in terms of funds, manpower and infrastructure. We also work on reducing gender disparities by giving more girls access to quality basic education.

We conduct various workshops in neighborhood as a part of our education awareness programme. Educational events are also hosted to attract like-minded people to join in our noble cause and work to achieve the vision of basic quality education for the underprivileged children.

Since social inequalities, economic disparities and infrastructure bottlenecks constitute the three primary reasons for children illiteracy in India - we also try to focus on these problems and chart out strategies to mitigate them. Our mission is to identify the most marginalized populations in the society and work for their betterment.


The Rural Development minister of India, Mr. Jayram Ramesh has sarcastically stated in one of his speeches that India can send satellite into the space but can’t put up a latrine everywhere. A staggering 53% of Indian households still defecate in the open. This defecation causes many diseases like diarrhea, cholera and bilharzia. Open defecation is also harmful to environment as it pollutes the ground water. Sanitation status in India requires immediate attention from Government agencies and other responsible partners to address this scourge through prioritized and well-coordinated action.

Subhakar Rao’s NGO has started to take initiative in this regard by partnering with government agencies and private players to set up communal toilets in and around Bangalore city. He aims to address sanitation issue through the following three point actions:

  • Creating awareness about clean sanitation behaviour among the urban poor communities through campaign and other channels.
  • Capturing and implementing latest innovative technologies for improved and cost effective sanitation.
  • Facilitating infrastructure for efficient waste management solutions.

Subhakar Rao strongly believes that through a participatory approach of public-private partnership and involving concerned stakeholders of the society – open air defecation can be eliminated from India.
