Silicon Andhra is doing very good job to promote TELUGU language for the younger generations. The main aim of this non profitable organization is to create the cultural identity in the youth especially and also providing a good healthcare in the rural areas of India (Kuchipudi village,Krishna District,AP). My both of the sons are the students of Silicon Andhra ManabaDi and I feel proud that my wife is also contributing(teaching) in ManabaDi to support my TELUGU community.
Thanks and Regards,

Silicon Andhra is the greatest place to maintain the Telugu Culture and Language among Telugu speaking people of the USA, this is a non-profit organization represents the aspirations of Telugu people in several authentic traditional ways.
I like the most important thing is learning & teaching the Telugu language for the children through ManaBadi school which is the most important foundation for retaining mother tongue heritage for the next generations,
I'm fortunate and privileged to be part of ManaBadi volunteer and coordinating events with the association of children and parents.

Manabadi is a non profit organization with great values. Kids come to school with great interest and I see a lot of progress in the kids. A lot of kids started speaking Telugu. The school not only teaches values but also the importance of the mother tongue. I recommend Manabadi to my friends and family. The school also encourages the Manabadi Graduates to volunteer as assistant teachers(Bala Guruvulu) again. I feel privileged to be a volunteer teacher.

Sorry to tell this but I want you to know my regrets on this class. My daughter was studying from her 5 yr old in Manabadi. But there was no any good response for the efforts of my daughter, my husband and myself.

We are basically a Chennai based Telugu speaking family so we don't know the script. She has not missed even a single class in these 4 years. But the result is nothing. I have so much importance to mother tongue and was very eager that she would write and speak at least the basic.
Having volunteer teachers for all the concerns only reason is that they are also parents like you, they cannot put anything more than this.

Two hours she use to be in the class. She is such a good student to her teachers. In the sense of proper attention is given my daughter is great performer.

After 1st 2 yrs after reaching pravesam they did not concentrate on her. Just they easily told she had to repeat pravesam. If the teacher and center coordinator had put some efforts and then told this I would have felt ok. But the whole year they kept quite and at the end of the year they are telling your daughter performance is not sufficient.

She had 100% attendence. I even requested them that I am ready to pay additionally for any tuition or extra classes. They appointed a 8th grade student to teacher. It was of no use.
Again it waste of time. For everything I supported them.

Finally daughter gained nothing from this class of 4 yrs paying $1200.

Only happiness is the annual recital.
She use to sing some Telugu rhymes,
all because I made her practice at home.

This teaching and syllabus is not fit for parents like me who don't know the script.
Basically they are happy with kids who clear the exams not about the struggling kids and parents like me.
I am sure this would be the case in all the centers, my case is Fremont south.

I am sure they put lots of efforts but
Nothing was useful to me.

Amazing organization can wonders and did many. I was involved almost day one, my life tied to SiliconAndhra. I always feel I could completely dedicate for the organization.

Great achievement is recent inauguration of Hospital in rural India serving 100K+ poor and lower middle class citizens of India. It was great journey and kudos to entire organization.

Back in US continues efforts to connect the community through culture and arts. University of SiliconAndhra is icon which is growing day by day offering many courses.

I can write all my day about SiliconAndhra however from bottom of my heart I feel this is the best organization to get Top Rate.

SiliconAndhra is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, non-political, non-religious, cultural and community organization based in the Silicon Valley (Bay Area), California with goals to maintain and perpetuate the Telugu Samskruti (Culture), Sahityam (Literature) and Sampradayam (Tradition) amongst the Telugu speaking people across the world.

I have been a volunteer of SiliconAndhra since 2003, helped in Manabadi (to teach our mother tongue - Telugu to the next generation kids in US). They have taken up few other wonderful initiatives like UofSA, SAMPADA which in turn benefit the community in all ways, lay a platform & path for the next generation. It is one big family of hard working & passionate volunteers from all around the world who come together to make a difference in everyone's life . I feel blessed and have immense joy to be a part of this Vasudhaika Kutumbam.

Currently helping with Jayaho Kuchipudi. Part of that development is project Sanjivani in Kuchipudi village - collecting donations from all sources for building a multi speciality hospital to benefit underprivileged residing in 60-70 villages with medical facilities. This hospital which in turn also serves/saves thousands of lives, to be completed by October 18, 2018.

Silicon Andhra is an organization which is for ever committed for creating/providing basic facilities to the people of rural areas in the fields of Art, Infrastructure, Health Care, Education etc.

Kuchipudi village in Krishna District of Andhra Pradesh, India is provided with Cement Concrete Roads, Renovation of Schools, Drinking Water Taps & Lavatories for individual homes, Parks LED Street Lights etc. I personally witnessed the happiness of villagers as they are leading a much better life than before. And people of village always express their gratitude to Silicon Andhra for this.

Recently commissioned Sanjivani Multi-Specialty Hospital in the village not only takes care of medical needs of the people of village but also the needs of people of many villages around it as well. This is a fabulous gesture on the part of Silicon Andhra. This hospital would save thousands lives as there is no multi-specialty hospital nearby.

The relentless services being rendered by Silicon Andhra towards basic needs of society is phenomenal. Commitment of Management and Volunteers towards this is awesome.

As part of Health Care Development, the ongoing construction of Sanjivani Multi-Specialty Hospital in the village not only takes care of medical needs of the people of village but the needs of people of many villages around it as well. This is a fabulous gesture of Silicon Andhra. This hospital is going to be commissioned soon for public needs.

SiliconAndhra has been the back bone of Telugu (a south Indian language) with respect to language, culture, literature and heritage. They have done tremendous work in this language and have propagated and preserved our language not only in America but also in other countries outside of India. They achieve this by regularly conducting cultural events that depict Indian Language, Culture, Literature and heritage and will also make kids part of it, so they are motivated to learn and keep in tough with this rich language.

They have established Telugu school called "Manabadi" to enable kids who were born and brought up in countries outside India to learn Telugu Language and keep in touch with their cultural roots. In most of the centers and school districts, this study also accounts for foreign language credits for high school students.

They have also established the first University for Indian Studies outside of India called "University of Silicon Andhra" and have been offering amazing courses in Indian arts and languages and have been running the university successfully for 2 years.

They also have a program named "Sampada", which quantifies an Indian fine art learned by a student from any guru by conducting junior and senior level certification exams.
For all the above academics there is a curriculum set by reputed universities and stalwarts in the field of study.

SiliconAndhra is an amazing Non-profit organization which got nine Guinness book of world records so far by serving the Telugu community in the USA and in India from the year 2001. I work as a volunteer for this terrific organization for more than eight years. My daughter got an opportunity to learn her mother-tongue through ManaBadi which is one of the initiatives (Flagship) of SiliconAndhra. Many hundreds of volunteers are working for this organization with a lot of passion and dedication. SiliconAndhra's mission is to maintain and perpetuate the Telugu Samskruti (Culture), Sahityam (Literature) and Sampradayam (Tradition) among the Telugu speaking people of USA.

SiliconAndhra is a nonprofit organization that I am proud to be a part of. SiliconAndhra’s efforts in the past have helped hundreds of thousands of people in rural villages in South India and they are still going to continue helping these people in need. SiliconAndhra has built bus stations, public restrooms and toilets in households that didn’t have them, paved roads for better travel and transportation of goods, and their most recent project was building a $5 million multi-specialty hospital that would provide quality healthcare to 156 villages in India. I joined SiliconAndhra’s nationwide initiative, Future Young Leaders for Humanity, which was comprised of youth leaders across the U.S. that raised money in their states to donate for the creation of this hospital, and I successfully raised approx. $10,000 for he buildin of this hospital. The hospital just recently opened on Oct. 18th, and it is now helping thousands of poverty stricken villagers receive healthcare that wasn’t provided before. SiliconAndhra plans to continue providing the necessary amenities and institutions for better living in places that are in need and have skyrocketing poverty levels.

Silicon Andhra has been doing really great job in all aspects. It has adopted a historic village and totally changed the image of the village. Now it has undertaken a construction of Hospital that caters to more than 100 villages around Sanjivani. I have been very scared to make donations all through to any non profit organisations because our hard earned money is not going to the right people. But once I closely involved and observed the activities and progress, every dollar is being wisely and correctly spend and is reaching to the needy the way it should. Just can't express how grateful we all are to this organisation !!

Recently we have SAMPADA program which is much more interesting. I wish this organization many many more success stories and love to continue as a volunterr in supporting many good causes this organization takes up including adoption of Kuchipudi Village, which is my most and foremost interest.

I was approached by eminent collegues of Indian classical music to work as a faculty member with Silicon Andhra. Though i was a little tentative at the beginning, I realised quite fast, that this was a group of people whose dedication to the cause of propagation and education in core areas of Indian heritage-learning such as live performing arts traditions and literature is far beyond what I had imagined or come across in my experience as an academic. This is a team that long term vision. They dreams big, and at the same time have the technical capability and resources to bring those dreams into reality. They are willing to take one step at a time, and move towards a larger goal progressively. The head of Silicon Andhra, Mr. Anand Kuchibhotla, has inspired a number of people in the community to take up the mission of SIlicon Andhra as their own, and contribute immensely to the cause. The team of Silicon Andhra, works not as a work-team, but more as a family and they take their responsibility to the students, families and staff members very seriously.

With a vision, leadership to carry forward that vision with efficiency and effiectiveness, resources to execute it, and a community rallying behind and willing to contribute their mite, SIlicon Andhra is sure to make waves in the near future.

Silicon Andhra and I are of the same age. Over the past 16 years, Silicon Andhra has not only given me one of a kind opportunities such as platforms to perform, a chance to learn about my culture and heritage, but also has become my extended family. The amount of love, affection, and support the Silicon Andhra family has showered me with throughout the past 16 years is definitely unconditional. Growing up in the United States, 20,000 miles away from family in India, one would assume that kids here would be detached from their original customs and traditions. Silicon Andhra has proved the opposite; I was so fortunate to be one of the first ever students to join ManaBadi the year it started, and feel privileged to have been given the opportunity to learn how to read/write/speak my language as well as participate in annual performances through ManaBadi. The small skits and plays our ManaBadi class prepared for the annual event led me to find my passion in singing and acting. Joining Silicon Andhra is a wonderful way to be involved in the community as well as participate in cultural traditions and practices. I wish Silicon Andhra many more successes in the future, and I hope it continues to positively affect future generations of kids like me.

Silicon Andhra is a great Non Profit Organization and a role model for other non profits.
I was associated with Silicon Andhra activities since 2007, when I was the President of Telugu Association of Greater Chicago, another non profit organization. Since then I am involved in their major activities like Mana Badi, International Kuchipudi Dance festival etc,.
Their recent project of a 200 bed hospital at Kuchipudi Village in India is a role model.
I visited the KuchipudiVillage during Feb 2016 during my visit to India. I am amazed to see the progress in the Village after Silicon Andhra adopted it.
This organization far exceeds all the expectations of the well wishers and Donors, and challenges other non profits.

It has been a pleasure to be part of SiliconAndhra for the last 15 years. Organizations come and go, several of them struggle to last long for various reasons. But, with SiliconAndhra, I haven't seen any one having any ulterior motive, but sincerely working towards the core principles of promoting, keeping alive the culture both in time (for future generations) and space (all over the world), doing good to the community by taking up unsurmountable projects where there is such need, and succeeding. The leadership has awe inspiring vision that keeps broadening every day. It is a great place to be where learning never stops and provides opportunities/avenues to make world a better place. It is an all-embracing organization and has a close-knit family environment despite being spread across wide area.

"Basha shevaye bhavitharala seva "
Ee vakyamu chala shakthi kaladhi Manabadi lo Naku enthagano spurthi kaliginchindhi.
Telugu bhasha antharinchakunda Manbadi chesthunna krushi patlla maa pratheka dhnvadhamulu Andhariki
Nenu Balabadi-1 thatagathi ki upadhyauraluga 2016-2017 samvasharamu naa vanthu sahayamu andhinchinadhuku Naku chalaa shanthosamga vundhi
Mana mathru bhasha yenni ugalaina vuniki kolpokunda vundali ani korukuntunnanu

I have been associated with this non profit organization since past 5 years. All the volunteers in this organization are very dedicated. The organization works on great ethics and moral values.
We have been promoting all cultural values and Indian language Telugu effortlessly.
The organization has taught more than 6000 kids not only the language but also moral values by way of poems, stories etc.
The syllabus is also one of the kind in a very structured way.
The organization also works effortlessly for Indian classical dances and music.
The Kuchipudi village has been
Reformed with toilets, roads and hospital.
In my view no other organization does service with so much dedication as Siliconandhra.
