Smt. Aruna Kumari Galla & Dr. Ramachandra N Galla with the inspiration and motivation of Sri. P. Rajagopal Naidu, laid the foundation of Krishnadevaraya Educational & Cultural Association (KECA) in 1969 to support deserving meritorious students from rural background.

KECA strongly believes that a society’s development greatly depends on the education of its people. Since inception, the trust has been devising ways to extend quality education to the students of the rural region and make them employable through skill development programmes.

Our mission is to build a community empowered with education and strong moral values. We are strong-willed to elevate the students with better education, thereby, making them productive members of a fast-evolving global society.

The trust, in the last 50 years, has undertaken several support programmes for the benefit of economically backward students who demonstrated scholastic ability.


KECA will enhance corpus fund to Rs 10 Crores to support minimum of 500 rural meritorious students of multi disciplines pursuing higher education with financial assistance in excess of rupees 100 lakhs per year.
