Education & Employment are the two main aspects usually for anyone. But gaining knowledge and taking a bold decision to setup an Non Governmental Organization (NGO) with limited resources, and with a genuine purpose of improving the living standards of the less privileged children by giving them shelter, food, healthy conditions, education. Supporting destitute elderly women by giving them food every day & instilling a hope in them that they too are wanted, struggling women with lot of responsibilities have a avenue to work and earn with dignity through tailoring centres and teaching at creche centres. These are only few of the activities that Mr.Mallikarjuna is carrying out for the last so many years with immense hard work, dedication, perseverance and with a vision to support and uplift the economically & socially deprived people. All this is happening Mr.Mallikarjuna believes being available to the people all time. Instead of a 9am to 5pm software job he chose to work constantly for his cause. Ravada Foundation has been supporting Seruds in few of its activities as it has been seeing SERUDS achieving many notable milestones like setting up of an orphanage, successful implementation of midday meal, creche centres, tailoring centres, awareness programs, saving human’s lives during 2009 floods in Kurnool. Very Nice to know that all over the world people are recognizing Seruds efforts in giving back to the society that is the reason donors are coming forward voluntarily with their contributions. Ravada Foundation would support Seruds Ngo for times to come and wishes Mr.Mallikarjuna, his resource team & Seruds that they achieve higher milestones in their genuine cause of service to people.

I have been working as student intern with SERUDS for the past one year and it has been a great Journey. During this one year I have learned about life, humanity and how SERUDS is dedicated towards such a social cause. I can confidently say that Mr.Mallikarjun has a great vision for SERUDS and his dedication towards upliftment of the needy in the society is unbelievable . All the Programs that are run by SERUDS are closely monitored and it is not only serving people of Kurnool but also entire state of Andhra Pradesh. I sincerely wish SERUDS being an NGO to spread its wings to all parts of India and serve all those needy in our country. SERUDS will always be special to me and am proud to be part of such NGO.

Mallikarjuna G has been running this NGO (SERUDS) from last 10 years . I know him in Person and he has been my engineering classmate. He developed interested in social work after engineering and now he is dedicating his 50% of time for this NGO. He started this NGO with 7 under privileged kids and this NGO grown step by step with help of friends, community, philanthropists from various regions and various backgrounds. Now SERUDS accommodated around 40 orphans and definitely organization needs help in terms of money and services. It is a pleasure and fortunate thing for me to work with Mr. Mallikarjun for SERUDS from last 8 years to generate funds , organizing various events and activities. Some of the good works we have done so far under umbrella of SERUDS are 1. Food, utensils and monetary support for Kurnool flood victims. 2. Midday meal for elderly people. 3. Distributed around 450 blankets for old people living road side. 4. Bought TV and DVD player and rhymes CDS for kids entertainment. 5. Distributed sweets and crackers for SERUDS orphans this Deewali ( 2013). 6. Regular health checkup for kids. It is been becoming tighter day by day as SERUDS is getting sporadic monetary support but organization does not have constant support to run orphanage. Mallikarjuna and myself are working to promote adaptation of kids for food , health and education . In this program Friends and philanthropists can choose to support orphan(s) for monthly food, yearly food , education expenses etc. Thanks SERUDS giving me opportunity to work for under privileged kids.

At the outset, the very thought of being socially associated with society and make ones presence felt in translating ideas and to transform in reality., is something which always appears to be an abstract, coz, talking is something different to action, but I felt exception is in the case of Mr.Mallikarjun, who is from engineering background that promises lucrative career, has chosen to tread a different path by choosing a career which brings smile in destitute children and ignored elderly women. Mr.Mallikarjun really deserves a pat, who foregone jobs with hefty packages of salary, for contribution towards poor and needy, he with some like-minded friends made this reality of serving society by forming an organization in the name of Sai educational and urban development society (SERUDS) in heartland of Kurnool. The organization is running for last 10 years with meager amount that donated by philanthropists and alike, but in order to sustain its activities, organization needs more sustainable funds so that it can run effectively in the years to come and I wish its gets due recognition from government and philanthropic bodies in the form of projects to sustain and to make a better society free of ignored elderly women and destitute children.
