Vision :: "Provide Security, Stability, Serenity & Spirituality to the residents of Anandam"
Mission :: "Help the Residents lead a blissful life providing quality life style with utmost care and love"
Anandam Trust runs 3 initiatives , a free home for senior citizens with 105 elders , a free poly clinic for the neighbourhood of 20 villages with 1.5 Lakh population and a free after school tuition to 250 needy neighbourhood corporation school students. We identified 15 students out of them as learning disabled .
The private schools for such students are very expensive and these students are from families with single parent , drunkard father , or children living with grandparents ( no surviving parents) . The father generally abandones the mother and children once he learns the child is a special need child.View More
