1. Leprosy Colony, Kurnool has been adopted and 56 students are being benefited there. They are provided with necessary books and stationery. They are also provided with transportation fee since they are located far from the town. Sunday classes are organised at Ashraya Premises to assist in their homework or otherwise. Moral values such as respecting others, cleanliness and health are also taught to them.
2. Not only students from Leprosy colony, but also children from nearby areas around Ashraya come to the classes on Sundays.
Students from financially weak background in Bangalore and Vishakapatnam are adopted by Ashraya and are assisted financially until they get jobs and are motivated to assist more students in situations similar to them.SUPPORT US
