Therefore, we go the extra mile to support meritorious students from rural background by providing financial assistance to students pursuing Medicine, Engineering, Polytechnic, Science, Arts, Literature, and Nursing. We also train rural youth and make them employable through skill development programmes.
KECA has been supporting the meritorious students with financial assistance by mobilizing funds from different sections of society.

Sri. Lankipalle Peddabba was felicitated at the Silver Jubilee Celebrations of the KECA
KECA has seen many heart warming stories unfolded in its premises.
Sri. Lankipalle Peddabba, a small farmer of Thotavaripalle village would accumulate the little amounts from his weekly sales in the local sandy. He would bring his savings to KECA once a year with a request to give it to someone ‘whose need was bigger than his’. He has never failed in this mission even once in the last 37 years.
Many students have benefitted from this financial assistance and have attained high positions across the globe. They in turn support KECA in whatever way possible. KECA takes this opportunity to appeal to you to join hands with us in this great endeavor with your generous contribution to brighten the lives of the young minds of the rural society.

How can you help us?
Corporate education is getting expensive, the task at hand is enormous.
KECA receives 300 and more applications for funding support every year. However, we can support a limited number of applications. We invite donations and contributions from the philanthropists/Institutions in India and abroad for the noble cause of supporting the students with merit, potential and promise.
Join hands with us in this great endeavor and brighten the lives of the young minds of the rural society with your generous contribution.Donate
