The school provides instruction in both English as well as Telugu(local language)and as such parents migrating to Hyderabad for their livelihood as laborers belonging to states other than Andhra Pradesh (A.P) and whose mother tongue is not Telugu will prefer to admit their children in this school because the medium is English. Further the school is recognised by the Government of A.P. upto 7th standard and we are planning up to 10th standard too. The school has also introduced vocational courses in their curriculum.

The organization plans to construct a school building to accomodate the increasing strength. This is a registered government organization and is recognized by the state, which is why the land has been provided at a subsidised cost.
a) To promote literacy among the illiterates.
b) To provide educational facilities especially to the slum dwellers and other down trodden communities by establishing primary and high school level schools.
c) To provide vocational training facilities (to the students) by introducing courses like typewriting, tailoring, painting and drawing and other low cost technical courses. Computer education is also part of our planned future vocational training programs.
The organization's registration number is 511-Year 1990.

Our members used to take part in medical camps conducted by lions club in slum localities. On such occasions we have witnessed the miserable conditions of the slum people. Poverty and illiteracy of the slum people had made deep impact on the collective psyche of our members.Sri Vikasbharati School was setup to provide educational facilities to the children from slums. Since 1990 this school is imparting conventional education to the poor and the down-trodden children of slum localities.
