Help a group of poor children at a children's home by reimbursing a Fund for their counselling and school van fees, INR 500


Akhanda Seva for International Shanti is an NGO based in Mysore, which works to improve the lives of destitute children through education.

How It Works

The NGO uses a van service to pick up the kids and take them to school, and to drop them back to our home after school. The kids attend a nice private school nearby. The van ensures that the kids arrive at school on time and are returned promptly in the afternoon, at about 3:45pm.

A children’s counselor holds weekly sessions at Karunya Mane on Sundays from 2pm to 6pm. He has many years of experience working with children from the streets and slums, and also provides assistance to staff members when needed. The counselor holds weekly individual sessions with the kids as well as group sessions on various topics, such as moral science topics, the importance of education and studying, health and hygiene, and behavior toward others.

Punctual and well behaved kids
During 2011-2012, w
The school van fees are paid to Deepa Primary and Middle school, which provides excellent education to poor children primarily from the nearby villages. The children benefit by being provided safe and efficient transportation to and from school.The counselor is an added benefit to our children, and provides important emotional and moral support to them during their formative years.
The school van allows the children to attend school safely, and return from school on a timely basis. The counselor has helped our children in many ways. For example, Shanti (5th grade) had trouble focusing on her schoolwork; after the counselor gave her concentration exercises, she experienced a significant improvement in her grades. The counselor has also helped Pallavi open up and be less shy around others; she now interacts well with the other children.
