The Founder’s Story:
Mr Bolla Shiva Shanker hails from a very poor, orthodox family. But it never deterred him from working hard and achieving his dreams. He grew step by step and went on to become one of the founding members of TRS party in 2001. He worked as the chairman of Handloom workers welfare society until 2014, and then was elected as a ZPTC for Narayanapuram. He did not stop there, he set out to fulfil the dreams of many other destitute people around him. With an aim to help the needy by providing them opportunities to self-sustain, Mr Shanker started the Aasaraa foundation in Munugodu. Under the rightful guidance of such a sacrificing leader, Aasaraa foundation is striving relentlessly to empower handloom weavers, provide employment opportunities to the many unemployed, offer resources and guidance to youth and help them build careers, train women and make them self-sustainable, provide healthy drinking water to fluoride affected areas and many more.
