Sri Krishna Chaitanya Vidyavihar Children’s Trust (SKCV) was founded in 1984 by Sri Norton Mathews Manihara from UK who was touched by the pathetic condition of the needy children like abandoned, orphan and semi-orphan girls and boys in India. Initially he had started his mission in Pune, Maharashtra. Later he moved to Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh and continued to serve the needy children who lived in difficult circumstances.


Dr. Arumulla Sridhar Reddy is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon rendering yeoman service in the field of Dental Health care through Dr. Sridhar Oral Health Foundation. From the time he took over as the Chairman of SKCV Children’s Trust he has given a new life and direction to all the programs. He is rendering great service to the cause of homeless children by shaping their future with care and warmth of love. His professional contribution to the cause of children, his excellent spirit of service in reaching the relief to victims of disasters and natural calamities and his kindness towards needy children are exemplary.

This year Dr. Sridhar has been elected as the AP State Chairman for Indian Red Cross Society. In the past he received Red Cross Gold Medal from Sri.
