IIMA Alumni Association Hyderabad Chapter Charitable Trust took over the school (facing imminent closure) located in Rasoolpura, a slum area of Hyderabad, designated as a notified slum by the government in April, 2013. The IIMA alumni are spurred by the vision that all children should have the same opportunities. The school was renamed as “Udbhav School” by IIMAAA Hyderabad Chapter Charitable trust.

Their vision is to transform the lives of at least 10,000 underprivileged children and their families by 2025.
