FREEDOM, an acronym for “Flame-thrower for Rural Education, Environment, and Development Oriented Movement,” is a not-for-profit Voluntary Organisation founded by Dr Ravindra Kumar Chintapalli and Dr Swarna Latha in 2002 and registered in 2004 under the Andhra Pradesh Societies Registration Act, 2001.
Since India lives in its villages, it goes without saying that development of villages augurs well for the development of the Nation! The term, “Flame-thrower,” in semantics means a Weapon that projects a stream of burning fuel. Here, we shall figuratively provide a Flame-thrower i.e. continuous driving force for what we call the “Rural Development Movement.”
FREEDOM has been passionately engaged in broad-based programmes including Water Management, Agriculture, Organic Farming, Afforestation, Public Health and protection of Environment, all through active public participation.
Our central idea is to promote Sustainable Community Development and improve standard of living while conserving Natural Resources through Eco-friendly methods. We, at FREEDOM, are of opinion that it is high time to Change!
The society is presently existing in a small building so that the Activities / Services by the society are being run / maintained in rented buildings facing more objections from respective owners. Hence, it was resolved by the society members to construct / secure new buildings. We are looking for any helping hands.
