Driving the Change
The Feuji Foundation has been instrumental in the developmental activities of the village. During a visit to S. Uppalapadu in 2012, Mr. Manohar Reddy, CEO, Feuji, Inc., noticed the poor infrastructure conditions of Uppalapadu and decided to adopt the village and start the developmental activities. The Feuji Foundation raised a seed fund of $1 million and utilized government schemes to complete the 20-point program of the Smart Andhra Pradesh Foundation (SAPF). The whole village came together and contributed 50 lacs INR for the development fund, making the villagers, partners in the development of the village. The village development was a collective effort by the Feuji Foundation, the state government, the local leaders, and the villagers themselves.
