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.


Over the next few years, KECA wishes to support many more deserving students for the total course expenditure and also increase the scholarship amount for each course. The association intends to realize its objectives, and serve a larger section of the deserving rural community.

  • Helping 250 students with 100% of the need by 2022
  • Increase the corpus to Rupees 5 crores by 2022
  • Extend support to many more meritorious students


The upcoming years are going to be a turning point for KECA! We are looking to educate, empower and enlighten many more capable students. Here is what we wish to achieve:

Expand our service to more students

Seek support from more volunteers and donors

Provide full financial assistance to minimum 100 students
