RAJA BAHADUR VENKATA RAMA REDDY SOCIETY
Raja Bahadur Venkata Rama Reddy was a pioneer in Social Service. He was a legendary and visionary in the fields of Education and Community development. Having been influenced by his epic Saga of Service towards Reddy community a few noblemen of Nizamabad have decided to emulate his work in Eradicating prevailing Social Evils and also provide a platform for Good Education for the members of Reddy Community.
On 7th of Dec 1980 Late Sri G. Malla Reddy Late Sri J. Hanmanth Reddy, Sri G. Ganga Reddy, Late Sri K. Naveen Reddy and Late Sri E. Ramachandra Reddy have met and initiated action for the formation of a society especially for the cause of Reddy Community. This Society was named as Raja Bahadur Venkata Rama Reddy Society and it started functioning in January 1981.
The Guiding Values and Principles of the Society are as follows:
- To eradicate the evil menace of Dowry in Reddy Community.
- To lessen the economic burden on Bride’s family during Wedding ceremony by curbing wasteful expenditure which is incurred in the name of Tradition.
- To limit the marriage ceremony from that of a week to a couple of Days and also banning Non-Vegetarian food on the day of wedding.
- To help improve the Standards of Education of Reddy students. Also help them study from KG to PG.
5. To improve the lot of Women and Elder members of Society.
6. To help the Society Evolve as per the changing world but with same guiding
Moral Values which made Reddy Community the pioneers amongst other communities.
To implement and execute the Guiding Principles of our Society 4 subcommittees have been formed viz (A) Alambana Committee (B) Education Committee (C) Hostel Committee (D) Women’s Welfare Committee.
The advent of nucleus families and Globalisation have made young members of the family seek Greener Pastures abroad leaving behind a legacy of old parents/parent who are unable to fend for themselves. The word AALAMBANA means giving support in all aspects. So to take care of those parents who are at the threshold of sunset of their lives a HOME for Senior Citizens has been established in the year 2000-2001 in a Area of 4 ½ Acres at Mubaraknagar 3kms from Nizamabad.
This committee is headed by a Vice President & 4members.At present there are 32 inmates who are provided excellent life style with all possible humane care and love.
RBVRR HIGH SCHOOL:
To provide good and quality education to the children of our Community a School was started in 1981-82 in a rented house. Donations were received from many philanthropists from within the community for acquiring 9 Acres of land @ mubaraknagar. The school which started with 20 students and 2 Teachers now is enshrined in a 9 acre campus with 1400 students and staff.
The school teaches from Nursery to 10th. It has an excellent record of 100% first class results in Xth Class since inception. As part of the Society’s commitment towards upbringing the down trodden of the Reddy community 10% of the students are given free education and Transport facilities. This committee has a Vice President, a secretary Correspondent and 9 members to monitor the school activities.
It was thought that to improve the lot of rural students a better living ambience should be provided to them. This will help them to study on par with urban students. Towards achieving this ideal a hostel was envisaged with the benevolence of the Hon’ble Justice Sri B. Jeevan Reddy and his brother Sri Seetharam Reddy .This Hostel constructed in the year 31-01-1982 was named after their father Sri Benjaram Bhooma Reddy. A separate Ladies Hostel in the name of Sri K. Ananth Reddy was constructed in the year 5-5-2009. Around 250 students are nurtured here to reach the zenith of their life. They are imparted education in all aspects of life including academics. Hygiene and Health are given utmost priority in the hostel life.8 tutors tend to students who need remedial classes. As a policy 10% of the reddy’s get free hostel facility. Many of the former inmates who are now employed around the world stand testimony to the philanthropy and community development program of RBVRR Society. A vice President & chairman along with 4 members coordinate the functioning of the Hostel on a daily basis.
WOMEN’S WELFARE COMMITTEE:
Realising the role of the Woman in building a Community and believing that “Empowerment of Women leads to empowerment of Society” a Women’s Welfare committee has been promoted. This committee strives to enlighten women members of the community in eradicating prevalent social evils. It helps them attain economic independence. A platform is provided to raise their voice against traditions which are unnecessary and at times inhuman. This committee helps in inculcating Familial values in consonance with the changing trends of the society at large. Higher education for girl child is an accepted norm now thanks to the efforts of this committee. Sending an unmarried Girl child abroad for higher education now brings Pride in place of Stigma. Though the committee needs to reach far shores in terms of Social reforms the work done so far is commendable. We believe an honest effort has been made to present a true picture of the RBVRR SOCIETY’s Commitment towards multi dimensional development of Reddy Community.
