Byrraju Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing about a tangible improvement in the quality of lives of the rural underprivileged. We are currently working in 150 villages across five districts of Andhra Pradesh, India and impact nearly 1 million rural lives. Our programmes include a water treatment plant, constructed by contribution from NRI and 50% by contribution from foundation. Plastic cans are used to deliver water and sold at 1.50 to 2 RS. Per liter and enough is recovered to pay for O and M cost of the plant.

Our sanitation program aims to usher in provision of a self-owned, manageable sanitation facility to every family in the below poverty line (BPL) Category. A total of 30,000 individual sanitary latrines are already constructed with 95% usage. Additionally 40,000 Individual Sanitary Latrines are being constructed to achieve 100% coverage in 150 villages with properly constructed sanitation facilities.

I would be grateful, if members of the community can share with me
