Mission/Vision
To directly improve the lives of exploited at-risk, destitute children and the forgotten, suffering elderly, enabling them to become beacons of light and share the same gifts of peace, goodwill, and generosity with others for the rest of their lifeti
 
Background
The organization started to help the poorest and neediest children and women with the basic needs, which they were not able to secure for themselves. The organization believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to achieve their full potential in life, and endeavors to assist children to do so.
 
The head of the organization is Swamiji Jamanagiri, a monk who renounced about 25 years ago and has dedicated his life to spiritual pursuits and selfless service. He often says just do good things and help others who need help who cannot possibly repay you. Swamiji influences others to do good towards others who are needier than them, without expecting anything in return.

 A little goes a long way
Mahesh, uncle to Anita, aged six, took the girl in about a year ago after her mom (his sister) and dad both died. Mahesh, a young man, just started a family with his wife. They have an old watch shop that supplements its sales by renting DVDs. Their house has no electricity and they cook using firewood. Uncle lives in a village far from Mysore, and takes her to the city for their monthly checkups, a four-hour bus ride each way. Anita and her sister, Ambika lost both their mom and dad to HIV/AIDS related illnesses. Anita is tested positive for HIV, and now she and her sister live with their uncle in his small house. It is a burden for the uncle to care for the girls, but there is nobody else to care for them, so he diligently does so, taking Anita to monthly checkups and making sure she takes medicines. We provide a monthly care packages to Anita and her uncle which provides him with some support in taking care of his niece. The care package includes a small amount of cash, to help ease his financial burden, as well as nutritional items and soap to help them stay clean very important for HIV+ children. The new program was started in September 2008. It has been received well both by our recipients and the medical clinics that refer their poorest patients to us. The care package eases the financial burden of uncle Mahesh by about 30% - 50%, and he expresses his gratitude each time we see him. With your help, we can expand the program to help even more children who have lost their parents to this disease.
 
 Caring Teacher for Our Kids
One of our teachers, Vishwanath, comes from a poor family and has had many financial issues. He is a long-term teacher at our kids school, and comes to help our first graders with their after-school studies. We gave Vishwanath a job as an after-school tutor, as he came well recommended and is respected and liked at the school where he works. Vishwanath enjoys teaching our first graders, and is strict yet kind and patient with them. The extra money that he earns also helps with his family’s financial situation, as they struggle. Vishwanath lives with his wife and two children in a small, two-room house near our orphanage. Vishwanath and our other teachers continue to work with our kids for the entire school year, and all come daily to teach during April and May (school holidays), as they don’t want our kids to forget what they’ve learned in school this year.
 
 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.
