Zero to One - First village identified for makeover - Thirumalagiri, Atmakur Mdl., Warangal Dist., Telangana State

Situated at a distance of 23 Kms from Hanmakonda, Warangal District of Telangana State, India, this small, peaceful and beautiful village called Tirumalagiri is bestowed with people with determination and courage. Few months ago, all the villagers have given up:

  • Alcohol consumption in the village
  • Gambling
  • Taking loans at higher interest for crops

In addition to this, they have formed committees to monitor the activities and review them periodically.

We were very fortunate to have located this village for our ambitious project of entirely making over this village with the help of various Government Agencies and Retired Professionals ready and energetic to contribute their knowledge and expertise voluntarily.

The picture shown above is that of the Primary School of the village - Anganwadi Kendra - dilapidated and unfit for use. To build a new building for school along with a reading room will be our first priority.

Being a Sunday, we could interact with some of the villagers and kids.
