"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

To partially fulfill the above Goals, the Trust established a free home for orphan/destitute children, “BALYA”, which provides shelter, education, healthcare, food and other day-to-day needs for these children. Balya is presently in a rented accommodation of about 2500 sq. feet distributed in two floors at 162, Manganhalli Cross, Ullal Main Road, Bangalore, 560056. Presently there are 55 children accommodated in this premises out of which 30 are Boys and 25 are Girls. The premises where the children are currently accommodated has a capacity for 50 children with some difficulty. The Trust is planning to accommodate many more orphan children in the years to come and to cater to this need, it is planning to have its own bigger premises. To fulfill Trust’s aim of running an Educational institution for the benefit of deprived children of the society, the Trust established a school, Balya Vidya Mandir, from the academic year 2011-12. This is approved by the Government of Karnataka and presently classes LKG to class V are permitted to be run. In addition to the resident children of Balya six children from the local area are also admitted in this school. Trust is giving them books and education fully free. This school has been started presently in the same premises of Balya. Trust had acquired a small piece of land of about 880 Sq. ft. in the close vicinity of Balya premises in March 2011 and undertook construction of the school building from November 2011. This building in its first phase of construction would be having two floors to accommodate part of the school. This is going to be ready for occupation by May 2012. In Phase -2 of the project two more floors would be added to the above building to accommodate all the classes. This will be taken up in the year 2013 depending upon availability of funds.
