Education: Paving the Path to Progress

Dedicated to promoting education as a transformative force


Access to Success: Bridging Educational Gaps

Driven by an unwavering belief in education’s transformative power, MCRF stands as a vanguard for reshaping the educational paradigm. We recognise education as the bedrock of societal progress and advocate placing it at the forefront of government priorities.

In Telangana’s educational landscape, MCRF’s vision is enhancing both quality and accessibility. We are acutely aware of the challenges; many children face barriers to education due to financial constraints and limited facilities. With determination, we’re crafting a holistic strategy to ensure financial aid and alternative learning avenues for students at all levels.

Some Ground Realities

Children between the ages of 6 and 14 do not attend school

Children who start school will drop out before completing elementary school

Students drop out before completing the full cycle of elementary education

Children wasted

Challenging Educational Disparities

  • According to a survey by the Smile Foundation, around 59 million of India’s 200 million children between the ages of 6 and 14 do not attend school.
  • Four out of every 10 children who start school will drop out before completing elementary school.
  • A staggering 29 out of 100 students drop out before completing the full cycle of elementary education, and these are often marginalised children. (Source: SRI-IMRB Surveys, 2009 and 2014)
  • Approximately 50 percent of adolescents do not complete secondary education, and about 20 million children do not attend preschool. (Source: Rapid Survey of Children, 2013-2014 MWCD)


Gender Disparities in Literacy

  • Telangana has the fourth-lowest literacy rate in the country, at 72.8 percent, and the second-lowest literacy rate among rural women, at 53.7 percent.
  • According to the National Statistical Office (NSO) data on literacy, 15.4 percent more males are literate than females in Telangana, the highest gap in all the southern states.
  • Telangana has the country’s seventh-lowest rate of free education recipients. Only 37.1% of the state’s population, aged 3 to 35, has access to free education.

A closer look

Children in India are not receiving a quality education. While some children simply do not have access to a school, others are disadvantaged due to socio-economic factors. Unfortunately, those who are lucky enough to enroll often drop out due to inadequate school infrastructure and curriculum. Oftentimes, parents don’t value education enough to send their children to school.

A Future of Empowerment: Changing Lives Through Education

Through MCRF’s impactful contributions, we’re scripting a future where education stands as the cornerstone of empowerment, growth, and societal progress. We believe in breaking the cycle of poverty by providing quality education to the children of Telangana.

Quality free education is key to eliminating poverty in a single generation. And the same is essential for building a future for human security, community growth, and national progress.

Education imparted should aim to bring about changes not only in the amount of knowledge acquired but also in ability and skills for doing so, thinking, and acquiring habits, skills, and attitudes that characterize an individual who is socially accepted and adjusted.

Our Approach

Vision: Our aim is to work towards breaking the cycle of poverty through standard education for the children of Telangana.

We believe that we have the social responsibility to start educating children at a young age.

We’re committed to ensuring every child in Telangana has access to quality education. Our foundation trains volunteers to conduct community surveys, identify tutors, and counsel parents on the importance of education. Learning centres and mobile learning centres are being established to mainstream dropouts, child labourers, slum children, and street children into education.

The transformative power of education

Educated communities produce better citizens, fuel innovation, and lead to increased employment opportunities. MCRF’s mission is to help children become skilled professionals, bringing positive changes to their families and communities and alleviating poverty.

How do we do it?

Empowering Through Education: Our Transformative Approach

Drawing inspiration from the legacy of Dr. Marri Channa Reddy, Marri Adithya Reddy's deep commitment to educational advancement is the driving force behind pioneering initiatives. As a testament to his vision, the establishment of the Warangal campus of the Hyderabad Public School (HPS) marks a significant milestone in the pursuit of transformative education. Marri Adithya Reddy, as a board member of HPS, initiated the "good touch, bad touch" programme, empowering students with essential awareness. Innovative programmes like “Girls in Tech” and microfinancing initiatives highlight our pragmatic approach to uplifting women.

Unleashing Potential: Beyond Traditional Learning

Our approach fosters unconventional and experiential learning, envisioning education beyond the confines of traditional methods. We believe in the power of hands-on learning, evident in our initiatives like introducing agriculture to students and providing profound insights into the dedication associated with farming.

Digital School and School on Wheels: Bridging Educational Gaps

Innovative programmes like our Digital School and School on Wheels Initiative ensure that education reaches every corner. These initiatives are designed to bridge educational gaps and provide quality learning experiences for the underserved. Our Digital School leverages technology to provide access to quality education, while the School on Wheels takes education to the doorsteps of children who would otherwise miss out.

Breaking Barriers, Creating Opportunities

At the heart of our commitment lies the determination to break the cycle of poverty by providing international-standard education to Telangana's children. Our vision extends to creating an education hub where diverse institutions converge to foster cross-border education, research, and innovation. This blueprint exemplifies our foresight in promoting educational competitiveness.

Student-Centric Initiatives

Our unwavering dedication extends to student welfare. We've pioneered initiatives such as establishing kindergarten, reserving seats for underprivileged students, offering scholarships to marginalised groups, providing self-defence classes for girls, and providing comprehensive career and mental health counseling. Our advocacy for STEM education and creating a conducive learning environment underscores our commitment to holistic learning.
