Serving the needy since 1945


Started with only three children in a thatched shed, the Gurukulam now has its own buildings and infrastructure that can maintain our big family of more than 400 residents of all ages. It has developed into a large humanitarian center with various units primarily working for the cause of the poor and destitute.

One of the major advantages of our organization is that all the 300 orphaned kids have the support of the 80+ senior citizens who themselves are neglected by their kith and kin. The kids do not feel that they are born as orphans and they can select one or more of the 80 senior citizens as their father, mother, grandma or grandpa. In return, the senior citizens get love and affection from more than 300 tiny tots when they need it the most.
