Our Founder Chairman Late Dr. Prof. Bangalore T Lakshman was born in 1934 in a modest family with rural background. His inherent intellect quality with determination has made him work extremely hard to become Civil Engineer in 1959. He pursued his Master of Engineering Degree at University of Roorkee (Presently Indian Institute of Technology) and MS (Civil Engineering) at University of Delaware, USA. He has been an eminent engineer at Artesian water company Inc, USA for 22 Years and reached highest position as Chief Engineer.
His own struggle in early days of life acted as intrinsic motivation to reach the needy and help them to uplift their lives. Towards this mission Dr. Prof. B.T. Lakshman has been contributing half of his earnings all through his career. He was elected as Rotary Governor, Delaware in the year 1992. Since, he is one of the First Indians to be elected to such a coveted position. He took early retirement to devote his full time for the cause of service to the humanity. BTL Educational Trust for Rural Development started in the year 1979 by Dr. Prof. B.T. Lakshman an NRI from U.S.A. and registered under the Charitable Endowment Act. He dedicated his entire time and resources to “BTL Foundation for International Services, USA” and BTL Education Trust for Rural Development, India” founded by him in 1980 which are doing yeoman services in the field of health and education.
