We would like to share some photos and video clips from some of the recent food distribution programs conducted by our Ashram in Andhra Pradesh. This set of photos is from Pandirivalasa village, in Vishakapatnam district of Andhra Pradesh.

Pandirivalasa village is a tribal (adivasi) hamlet located near the tourist hillstation of Anantagiri. This village is located very remotely, near the mountains and forests, away from any town or modern facilities. The nearest small town is 20 kilometers away. The surrounding area is a beautiful and natural place, with lots of mountains, forests, waterfalls and so on.

We would like to give you a small update on the food relief activities being run from our Ashram in Andhra Pradesh.

School Uniforms for Children in Vizianagaram

Posted by | Jan 27, 2010 | 8,583 views

This month we were approached by Mr. Victor, the principal of Mandal Parishad Primary School in the rural village of Jonnavalasa, Vizianagaram district of Andhra Pradesh. He heard of our ashram’s food distribution programs in Vizianagaram and requested us to do something for the children in his school. Already the children receive daily meals from the government, through the national mid-day meal program, so we asked in what way we could be of assistance. He replied that the children could use school uniforms, as their families cannot afford them.

Distribution of School Supplies at Bhadrak Primary School

Posted by | Mar 22, 2009 | 7,689 views

Below are a few recent photos of a program for 300 children at Bhadrak Primary School. We have begun distribution of school supplies to poor students in rural areas who are unable to afford their own. We do not want children to feel discouraged from studying due to the expenses involved in purchasing basic things like notebooks, pens and school uniforms. Already the importance of education is often not understood in rural areas. When poor students are required to spend money to attend school, few will be willing to participate.

Toys for the Children of Randiya

In our previous newsletter we showed you pictures and a video of the children of Randiya and the weekly food distribution we conduct in that village. For the new year we thought it would be nice to give these children a small gift that they could really relate to, something that would allow them to just be children for a day.

Food Relief Begins in Bagurai Leprosy Colony

Posted by | Dec 24, 2006 | 5,821 views

This month we have begun food distribution in a new village, Bagurai Leprosy Colony, located a few kilometers outside of Bhadrak, in Orissa. As the name implies, most of the children in the village have parents affected by leprosy. This makes it even harder for their families to earn money, and take care of the children properly. We are trying to provide a little help in the form of spiritual food, so that the children can at least receive a few nourishing meals.

We provide a few photos below of the wonderful children from this village and the recent relief work. We have also included a 3 minute video clip at the top of the page.
