Change is inevitable. Some times change should begin with us. That is what BNPEF (Brahmanaidu and Prasad Educational Foundation) does. Established in 2008, the BNPEF recognizes the education greatness inherent in all people with poor and low income and supports their education endeavors by providing unparalleled education opportunities that lead to success in career - and in life.
BNPEF also helps Hungry and Poverty families in India along with Illiteracy globally. BNPEF will go out into underprivileged regions globally to fill the greatest need by distributing food, clothing, toys, school supplies, etc. As people receive food and clothing, they enjoy physical health along with a sense of self-worth that strengthens their faith and family relationships.
Since 2008, Kommanaboyina’s Family for Literacy, led by Mohan Kommanaboyina and his family, has distributed more than 2500 new books to children in need and refurbished the libraries at numerous schools across the globe.
Kommanaboyina family have volunteered time and money to donate, collect and distribute books to children from low-income families – working to overcome their No. 1 obstacle to literacy, a lack of access to books. In addition, for many children, the books they receive are the first they’ve ever owned.
