Hands that help are greater than the lips that pray
Let noble thoughts come from all sides
Dr. S.L.Tulasamma, a medical practitioner by profession, but a true social worker at heart, she devoted her time and financial resources for the welfare of senior citizens and education of girls from weaker sections of society for nearly two decades, mostly in Andhra Mahila Sabha, Hyderabad. She has now gone a step further to provide value based education to the destitute children and the needy youth, so that they would not only be self-reliant but would also become responsible citizens of India. Her deep desire resulted in the formation of a trust - Sri Vivekananda Vidya Vikas Kendra in the year 2007.
In order to achieve these objectives, a beginning has been made with a secure two-storied building measuring approx. 10,000 sq. feet. Three halls in the first floor are provided to accomodate 100 boys. Residential accomodation is provided to 4 members of the working staff, to ensure constant monitoring. This building is an affectionate gift to the trust by Dr. Tulasamma. Teaching support is provided as an addition to improve their education.
The administrative committee members visit the home every Sunday between 10am and 12 noon.
"Vignan Hall" is a multipurpose meeting hall to support the educational development and activities of our trust. We also have a library consisting of a significant number of books on diverse topics, which are useful for the children and college students.
We conduct quiz programmes and other extra-curricular activities like education skits, mono actions, singing, etc., for our inmates, on important occasions like birthdays of our immortal leaders and on national events.
Yoga and meditation is practiced for 15 minutes everyday. Indoor games like carroms and chess are also played.
These scholarships are awarded to the poor and meritorious girls including those who are differently abled for pursuing their higher education. The selection committee of our organization conducts interviews for candidates on the third sunday of July each year following the birthday of Smt. Durgabai Deshmukh (15th July), who strived hard throughout her life for the education and development of girls and women.
The guiding principles of the Trust are:
