The Pinnamaneni Award was presented to Satya Seva Trust in 2012 by Dr. Pinnamaneni and Smt. Seethadevi. The award is presented to organisations which strive for rural development.
Hard working Milk farmers have stopped adulterating the milk with water. Farmers contribute 3% of their income which goes toward helping the elderly in the village.
These farmers borrowed and donated 350,000 rupees to build a water plant to serve the village with pure drinking water (free water is supplied to the public school children). The amazing thing is the majority of these farmers own no more than a hut or a subsidized house.
These are very proud achievements by any standard. Only by cultivating the qualities like hard-work, honesty and compassion one can experience their innate human worth.
Though there are many who resisted the temptations created by the political corruption, the majority of the families were sold out for money and alcohol in elections.
