The Bhandary Foundation evolved on 2002 from the vision of Mr. Manjunath Bhandary, and is dedicated to the cause of social justice, social development through education, and uplifting the less fortunate sections of the society. The Foundation, which believes in the holistic development of the individual, has been encouraging and promoting cultural and sports activities as well.
The Bhandary Foundation was envisioned by Mr. Bhandary while representing the Indian Government at the World HIV/AIDS Awareness Conference at Barcelona, Spain, in July 2002, as one of the Indian Delegates along with Mr. Shatrughan Sinha, Hon'ble Minister for Health, and Mr. Oscar Fernandes, presently, Union Cabinet Minister for Transport, and Mr. I K Gujral, the former Hon’ble Prime Minister of India. The Foundation focuses on the process of sharpening the skill and talent of young minds who will be the enterprising future architects of our nation. With the development of modern, state- of- the- art, yet aesthetic infrastructure, the Foundation encourages not only basic training but also advanced learning facilities and research in various fields.
