Inspired by the smiles of Childhood
Working with Child rights since 1989 one lesson that we have learnt has been that on an average 50% of children dropout of schools even before the reach their 5th standard. Swamy vivekananda awasam is an initiative to encourage child education and not just child literacy. Providing children a congenial atmosphere, for atleast those who perform well in a screening test and also qualify as needy. These children all selected from the govt primary schools shall be trained in respective areas including sports and games as well as academics. In the first stage of selection a total of 26 childrn have been selected, and a total of around 100 children will be accomodated in the 5 acre well built home. The Awasam shall also act as a hub of various community development initiatives including training programmes to the volunteers at various levels.
With initiative from the local community volunteers of Seva Bharathi approached all the primary schools and selected children that are in need of a scholarship. Students who perform well in education and sports were given priority taking into account their family financial status.
Seva Bharathi has been working in Medak dist since March 2000 in the areas of medical aid, providing the crucial T.B eradication drugs and counseling the TB affected families through the Seva Bharathi DOTS programme. Complimenting the Govt efforts for eradicating the most deadly disease that cripples national productivity. It is in 2006 that Seva Bharathi volunteers decided to take another initiative with the community participation and identify the needy for a home.
Swami Vivekananda Awasam,
