Admission of orphans:
We get babies from bus stands, railway stations, temples, and even at the main gate of the Gurukulam. Abandoned babies are also sent from hospitals. All these children are admitted to the ashram without any reservations. Well-structured procedures like verifying details about the parents etc. are followed before we admit these children to the orphanage. Government certification from someone at the level of a "Tahsildar" is obtained to verify if the parents of the child are deceased and if the kid really needs help from an NGO. The Tahsildar also checks & certifies that the annual income of the guardian of the child is less then a sum of Rs. 2400/- and then qualifies the kid to be admitted to an orphanage. Additionally, a secured document preferably an "F.I.R" is also obtained from the local police station in certain cases.
Admission Of Senior Citizens:
Our ashram is the only organization in the State which provides a home for orphan children and senior citizens under the same roof. The ashram’s calm and relaxing environment helps these elders spend the remaining years of their life peacefully. The organization provides food and shelter along with basic medical facilities to these elders. Dormitories and cottages are provided in our old age home for both men and women. These dorms and cottages include all the basic facilities like a bed, fan, table and chair, water facilities etc. Please download our "Conditions and Fees Structure" Document that gives details on getting admitted in our Ashram.
