DIVYA RASA

Center for Healing, Learning, Research and Communication

Divya Rasa was conceived in a dream in 2007. Some eight years later, in 2015, Divya Rasa Charitable Trust was registered and a 2-acre land acquired in Tiruvannamalai. Our journey in Tiruvannamalai started as a trust dedicated to the well-being and care-taking of autistic and other differentially abled children. With the onslaught of Covid-19, we were forced to close the center. However, the old idea of having special children here sprouted anew, and we are in the process of re-starting the day-care center with a small number of local children.

 

Our center started with a small GoShala, which now has grown to have 23 cows. As we continuously search ways to maintain their well-being in the best possible ways, we continue enjoying their company.

 

Hi all,

Meet the girl in the picture, Mahalakshmi. She is 14 years old and going to Tamizh medium school 9th grade in her hometown. Five years back her father died and ever since her single mother took care of her education and life in the best way she could  putting her to English medium school, where she managed quite well being even in top 5 of her age group. 6 months back her mother remarried, but the father-in-law didn't want Mahalakshmi to join the new family. Hence, her mother was forced to leave her to Maha's cousin's family. They are hardly able to bring the food to table, but everything else is very tight. We are looking for someone or a group of people, who would "adopt" Maha for the coming 4 years and cover her education until the 12th grade. Fees, books, transportation and uniforms cost Rs. 25.000/- annually. 

 

English school is the only comfortable and familiar thing left in her life after her mother had to go, and even that has now been denied due to lack of money. Please help us support Mahalakshmi in her difficult times.

 

Donations made to our Trust account are eligible for a tax exemption according to the 80G facility.
