Thotopalli is a village in Gannavaram Mandal located in Krishna District of Andhra Pradesh, India and 20 kilometers from the city airport of Vijajawada, off National Highway number 5 connecting Chennai to Kolkata.
The site is nestled amidst beautiful surroundings, its borders demarcated by the expanse of Lake Brahmalingam to the South East and canals to the North East and South West, which provide irrigation for the local farming communities. Entirely self-contained and secluded from the busy highway that connects the village to the city of Vijayawada, the site provides the perfect setting for the harmonious growth and development of the children who will come to call it home.
An array of sustainable techniques and systems like solar and wind power, Hydroponic vegetables gardens, solar cooking are incorporated within the site’s design proposals, including the recycling of waste materials to create energy. The village will have extensive green cover. Planting of fruit bearing and shady trees have already been started which will increase the scope for self-sustainability.
