Byrraju Foundation was set up in July 2001 in memory of Late
Byrraju Satyanarayana Raju, He was an agriculturist cum successful businessman hailing from the West Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh.
A large-hearted philanthropist, Satyanarayana Raju believed in the development of villages and the progress of villagers. His philanthropy consisted of numerous direct charitable donations to thousands of needy people, which helped them transform their lives.
His three sons, Ramalinga Raju, Suryanarayana Raju and Rama Raju set up Byrraju Foundation, in his memory, within a week of his demise on June 27, 2001.
The Vision was to transform thousands of villages in a structured, professional manner. And in a record time of a few months, the first village centres were set up and the BRF services were kick-started in 50 villages.
BRF rapidly expanded its operation to cover 200 villages, running 40 diverse programs, touching all aspects of rural life.
