About Us

Ekalavya Foundation was started in the year 2006, by a visionary team with an intention to uplift the marginalized sections of the society particularly tribal people in Adilabad district of Telangana. It has taken various innovative initiatives in the fields of health, education and livelihood activities for their holistic and sustainable development.

Over the past decade, the organization’s reach expanded into Mahaboobnagar, Rangareddy, Medak and Hyderabad Districts of Telangana State and Kadapa District of Andhra Pradesh.

The organization has also diversified it’s activities into sustainable agriculture through promotion of organic farming, setting up farmers clubs. In the process we have also started ECOART (Ekalavya Centre for Organic Agriculture, Research and Training) – a training centre for farmers, which also provides a diploma course in Organic farming to promote agricultural entrepreneurs.

Vision

EkalavyaFoundation (EF) envisions the tribal community to become self‐reliant in all spheres of life viz. financial, educational, social and health through the process of participatory sustainable development while conserving their rich culture and bio‐diversity whereby every member is empowered enough to unleash the latent potential, excels in the desired domain and lives the life with dignity and self‐respect.

Mission

Ekalavya Foundation will carry out the community-driven initiatives in education, health, livelihood and natural resource management in the rural areas. EF simultaneously focuses on building the capacities of marginalized sections, forming vibrant, robust and self‐governance institutions and in the process impacting their behavioural and attitudinal aspects so as to re‐instil the feeling of self‐esteem and reciprocity in them.
