Kalvakuntla Kavitha, began working at the grassroots in 2006, for the socio-cultural and economic development of the people of Telangana. She along with a handful of like-minded people came together to form a non-governmental organization (NGO) which was, formally registered on November 3, 2008 as Telangana Jagruthi

Drawing Inspiration from the ongoing people’s movement for the statehood of Telangana and a strong desire to work for the welfare of the people, led Kavitha to the formation of Telangana Jagruthi.

The word Jagruthi means Awakening.

Awakening the Telangana society to a renewed sense of pride & unity was the goal. As the name Jagruthi implies, Kavitha believed in bringing the women & youth of Telangana together by instilling a sense of pride to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of the region.
Telangana Jagruthi played a key role in mobilizing the support of women and youth and also large sections of the society which acted as a force multiplier in the peaceful and non violent struggle for Telangana Statehood.
