Motivated by a burning desire to give back to the society that made him the success that he is today, Sri GVSS Anjaneyulu began a modest initiative to help his community. As his business interests multiplied, so did his various endeavours to improve the little village that he came from. From these humble beginnings were sown the seed for creating a dedicated Foundation that would channelise and maximise his social service initiatives. The result was the Sivashakthi Lila & Anjan Foundation, so named after its founders Smt. Leelavati and Sri.Anjaneyulu. What began as a humble initiative in the year 1998 to supply pure and potable drinking water to the thirsty Vinukonda region has today blossomed into a full-fledged Non-Profit Organisation that has touched the lives of many a resident of the Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh, India.
To run the organisation as a charitable institution and as a Non-Profit organisation
To enrich the quality of life of the underprivileged by helping them empower themselves and thereby strengthen their societyy
To foster a new generation of self-made entrepreneurs by providing the ideal environment and skill-sets
Our Core Values
Sri GVSS Anjaneyulu
At the young age of 44, G.V.S.S.Anjaneyulu is the Founder and chief Mentor of the Sivashakthi Group of Companies, leading producers and distributors of high yielding teak and horticulture plants and high quality agro-based products. A graduate in Science (B.Sc), the young Leader is a self motivated entrepreneur who has pioneered the “Direct from Factory to Farm” marketing concept, that put an end to the tyranny of the middleman, the bane of the poor illiterate Farmer. His years of marketing experience and direct interaction with farmers at the grass-root level has given him a deep insight into their problems, that has led to the creation of the Sivasakthi Lila & Anjan Foundation. The cornerstone of his social service philosophy is built around empowering the villager, involving a multi-pronged strategy that includes better living conditions, better farming practises and exposure to modern farming techniques.
The philanthropist believes that “The service of man is the only means by which you can serve God”.
“We, at Sivashakthi Group, are not just concerned about our business. We ensure that our business processes create a positive impact on society.
