ABOUT FOUNDER CHAIRMAN
Born on October 5, 1929, the late Sri G Venkat Swamy, Founder and Chairman of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Educational Institutions was the visionary behind setting up of these group of establishments. With an analytical mind, infinite capacity for work, and a knack for human relations, he also functioned as a veteran Congress leader and Ex-Union minister for the Government of India.
Popularly known as ‘Kaka’, his political career began in 1950 and spanned five decades. Kaka was a four-time Member of Parliament and served his last term in 2004. One who worked towards improving living conditions of the weaker sections of the society, he was also the General Secretary of the National Huts Union in Hyderabad, providing permanent accommodation for 75,000 hut dwellers.
Started in 1973, Dr B R Ambedkar Educational Society was inaugurated by the then Hon. President of India late Sri V. V. Giri. The vision behind the setting up of the group of institutions is deeply rooted in Kaka’s beliefs in Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar’s ideologies. The establishment was later converted to a Public Education Trust that aims to provide non-commercial, quality education to the underprivileged children, particularly to those from communities deemed as minorities by the Government of India. He was associated with the Trust as Chairman until the leader breathed his last.
Till date, more than 1,00,000 students are the benefactors of these institutions, who now serve the nation in valued capacities like the administrative, law enforcement, health, engineering and politics, among others. His dreams are much cherished and continue to propel us to realise the goals of our organisation.
