History

The Trust and its Governance:

Dr. Sri Jachani Rastriya Seva Peeta was registered on 19th September 1991. It is a secular apolitical charitable organization dedicated to the service of the poorest. It should be noted that the chief promoter of the trust, Dr. Sri Jachani was a very revered religious head of a math who in his life time had written 300 books on several topics .His successor, the present peethadipathi and the chief functionary of this trust Sri Veerabhadra Channamalla Maha Swamiji is in real sense a revolutionary, who belives that the poor and the down trodden are the living gods and service to them is the real worship. He has provided leadership to the most backward castes of the society in their struggle for their rights and privileges. It is he, who dreamt of this trust and registered it in the year 1991 when his predecessor was still alive. Through this trust, swamiji dreams of eradicating illiteracy in Bageppalli taluk, providing health care at the it steps of the needy, rehabilitation for the disabled, greening the whole taluk and provide access to safe drinking water to the poorest of the poor. He has no biases against any religion, caste and creed. He has achieved quite a bit with his own resources and feels that the future programmes are more important and realizes that he requires support from external agencies to accomplish the desire aims.

Administratively a trust board of 11 eminent and self-less people governs the trust.
