Project 511 was born as an idea, triggered by a need. A research on Government schools in Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy district unearthed the plight faced by the lesser privileged students who lacked access to even the basic necessities such as blackboards, toilets and notebooks in schools. The unfortunate state of these schools not only led to a severely compromised quality of education, but also resulted in high dropout rates.
The need for a healthy and holistic environment led Hyderabad Round Table No. 8 (HRT 8) and M.V.Foundation to join hands and work towards a common cause. During the time, the number of schools in Hyderabad district was 511 and thus, on 27th October 2003, Project 511 was born. Since its inception, Project 511 has worked closely with the Government to improve the quality of education among lesser privileged children. We work with 1022 schools currently and have impacted the lives of more than 200,000 children since we began.
