About the trustee:
Few weeks back, we(myself & Anitha) visited Saratha Sevashram, a home for orphaned and semi-orphaned children, run by Saadhu Yoga Kumar, who incidently a disciple of Swami Vivekananda. After finishing his studies @ Ramakrishna Math, he went to Himalayas, to know the truth of life. After few years, his Guru advised him to start his own service to the society and so he came back and started the orphanage. From that time, he is spending his time fullest to the society, by not even getting married. He is a yoga master and teaching yoga for corporates and earning nearly 20K pm, which is used to run the home.
About the home:
The home is taken care by him and his parents. The home contains nearly 30 students and the home provides shelter & education for all of them. Boys are taken cared by his father and gals are taken cared by his mother. All children are in the age group of 6 to 15. They are studying in the govt school, situated opposite to that home. Tuition is arranged and he gets the money for tuition centre also.
About the children:
This is one of the very few homes, which give value based education, such as Thiayagam. The students are well matured, they know how to speak with elders, they ask some unexpected questions, they do yoga regularly, etc. The trustee is really doing a fine job in developing the future generation.
At present, they don’t have any requirements related to education. The trustee said he is getting enough money from the well-wishers. However, its getting delayed, to get the provision items. He meant like thou they get the money for provision, sometimes, its getting delayed.
Saadhu yoga kumar is having good vision on his home and the near by poor students. He is having an idea to run a computer centre for the poor students in that village for free. So, we can have a computer centre there. As he is having a good vision, we believe he can able to handle the centre perfectly. Interested persons who wanna donate used computers, can contact Udhay.
