Advertising? oooh, orphan Template:No footnotes Street Cause is a Hyderabad, India based non-partisan, non-profit organization (NGO) founded in 2009 by Akhilesh Jukareddy. The non-profit’s slogan, “A life without cause, is a life without an effect,” highlights the foundation’s desire to establish impacts towards underdeveloped, underprivileged regions of society. Street Cause strives for societal awareness in five departments: education, environment, old age, social impact, and women empowerment.


Street Cause was founded by Akhilesh Jukareddy and his associates, Md. Akhil, Karthik Sutrave, Mitesh Lohiya, Raj Kiran, Yeshwanth Goturu, Nihar Kohirkar, and Snigdha Thalapally. It’s first division started at Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology. Street Cause’s social welfare projects have renovated orphanages, schools, and underdeveloped old age homes in Hyderabad, India. The non-profit has completed over 7000 tasks catered towards social welfare throughout the past several years.

They received the Excellence for Outstanding Community Service Award in June 2010, presented by the then Chief Minister of Andra Pradesh, Sri. Kiran Kumar Reddy. They have since branched into three different departments, exploring ways to promote environmental awareness through Eforce and providing a platform for members outside of the student community through Street Cause Gold.

Street Cause Divisions

Street Cause started with five divisions and expanded to 45+ different campuses. The organization has an active workforce of 5000+ students, making it the largest student-run NGO in Hyderabad. As of 2019, SC divisions have supplied basic amenities to underdeveloped regions; hosted fundraising events; recruited students; implemented projects towards environmental change; and have had a high impact on government schools, education, large projects, etc.


Street Cause has established Eforce clubs in 20 different schools since its inception in 2012. Each Eforce division develops eco-friendly projects to foster a cleaner, healthier environment. It is currently the organization’s most popular section.

Every year, the wing adopts a fresh, environmentally compliant theme. Eforce events are accommodated to fit the year’s theme—allowing the organization to advocate for change in several environmental issues. For example, 2015-2016’s mission was to “reduce, reuse, and recycle;” 2016-2017’s mission was to promote bottle gardening and roof gardening; 2017-2018’s mission was to encourage using cloth/jute bags over plastic ones.

Street Cause Gold

Street Cause Gold was created to extend the organization’s platform to SC members outside of the student community (graduates, engineers, doctors, teachers, entrepreneurs, etc). This particular wing of Street Cause opens its arms to all sectors of society, allowing anyone to participate in their service projects. It is currently the organization’s youngest branch.

Street Cause Projects

Solar Power Generating Systems in Schools

Street Cause set up a solar power generating system at Kasturba Gandhi college. The panels supply enough electricity to power the school throughout an entire year—simultaneously running appliances during the daytime and providing seven hours of battery backup every night. All 22 classrooms rely on solar power energy without depending on external sources.

Water Facilities in Schools

Helen Keller Institute for the Deaf and Dumb

Helen Keller Institute provides educational facilities and rehabilitation services to children with disabilities. Street Cause supplied the students with chalkboards and a commercial RO water purifier.

Jallepalli Primary Schools

The village has little to no basic water facilities to allocate to the primary school. Therefore, Street Cause members installed a motor to the bore well, added a water tank in the school, and provided a water purifier for proper filtration. Students no longer walked long distances to get drinking water.

Hyderabad Youth Assembly

“HYA not only aims to bring change in the world but also in the people to prepare them for everything the future has to hold.” - Street Cause Web Site

The Hyderabad Youth Assembly embodies the idea of “Unity in Diversity.” It’s a permanent project of Street Cause that unites students from multiple sectors into one large convocation. Meetings are conducted to discuss projects, plans, and strategies that influence/implement serviceable change to society. HYA follows the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 (established in 2016) while deliberating project ideas. All ideas in the convocation are turned into permanent projects.  


The following events listed are a few (amongst many) examples of fundraising events hosted by the organization.

Run for a cause

Run for a Cause is one of Street Cause’s most popular fundraising events. With over 15,000 participants and 1000+ volunteers, Run for a Cause funds freshwater facilities in rural areas; solar lamps in government schools; solar street lights; proper housing; water purification systems; educational facilities; and electricity for residents in remote villages.

Dunk It

“They say that nothing can beat a motive associated with a cause.” - Street Cause Web Site

Dunk It is a cash-prize, basketball tournament conducted by Street Cause to raise funds for service projects.  The Hyderabad Basketball Federation Club rendered their support towards the organization and helped them in technical aspects of the tournament. In total, about 190 teams participated in the event.

Chief Executive Boards of Street Cause:

The Chief Executive Board of Street Cause runs the entire organization. The board oversees all alumni, media, digital, financial, and cultural aspects of the foundation. Members facilitate cross-functional connections between SC Alumni; support all divisions regarding media related activities; manage Street Cause’s digital/social media platform; and ensure financial transparency throughout the organization.
