FOUNDING PRESIDENT : Dr Ravindra Kumar Chintapalli, a Medical Graduate from Hyderabad, left for the United Kingdom in 2000 A.D. to pursue a Masters Degree in Public Health Research from the University of Aberdeen. After completion of his Post-graduation, following an inner call of duty, he returned to India to serve the motherland!
In the broad picture, there is an intertwining link between health care development and socio-economic issues. His social conscience was reflected in selection of his Post-graduation dissertation, “Obstacles to Family Planning Practices: A Qualitative Study in South Indian villages.”
Accordingly, he realized the need to work on the issues connected with rural dynamics like Agriculture, Water, Land and Environment to bring about a holistic transformation. When he embarked upon these serious subjects, initially he neither had any professional knowledge nor financial security barring a missionary zeal to serve the society. He however has learnt many things out of passion through ‘practice and action’ method directly in the real life.
