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.


Lekhasree is 16 years old girl from Thadarapattu village, Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu. She lives with her grandmother Santha and elder brother (Vinith Kumar, 18 years old and studying his 2nd year in college). She is studying on the 12th grade and aspires to go to college after her studies are finished. She is living with her brother Vinit Kumar and her grand-mother Santha, who has been raising the children for the past 8 years alone.


Lekhasree's mother died through her own hand when she was only 8 years old. Mere three weeks later, her father disappeared during the day and was never seen after that.


Ever since these traumatic incidents, Santha, Lekhasree's and Vinit Kumar's grand-mother has been taking care of the two feeding them and putting them to schools, as if they were her own children. She has since grown old, and bearing all the pain and effort to raise her grand-children has left her exhausted and in dire need of economic help.


Although Vinit Kumar may start to work after his Bachelor's degree in 2023, the family is living with most meager measures, many days having nothing else but rice-porridge to eat. We are already supporting them with monthly grocery shippings, but their needs go much further than this.


We are looking someone to sponsor Lekhasree through her college years. With her humble background she is only applying to Government College, but there too she needs to wear the uniforms, have the books, notepads calculators, laptop, take care of transportation etc. She also needs to eat, as does her grand-mother, too.


Thank you for your time and kind thoughts,
