Food and Nutrition

Sai Aashraya's central kitchen with state of the art facilities help cater to mass cooking carried out every day, with Love as the main ingredient. Sai Aashraya started Breakfast Seva for children who went hungry to school every morning, feeling unwell, low on confidence and unable to focus in classes. We ensure these children become healthier and focus better in the classroom, and in extracurricular activities. Today, we serve1500 Children from 9 schools every morning. Along with Sai Aashraya's Super Speciality Medicare camp conducted in Sai Aashraya Adarsh Gram (adopted Village, Dharmapuri District), we serve these 70 families of lepers with high quality groceries including 10 Kgs of rice and 1Kg of dhal every month.

Educare is providing Education with Human Values at the core and is that which helps bring out the goodness in the hearts of the children making them Model Citizens, who will be the harbingers of Global Harmony and Universal Peace.

In all the 6 Villages and 9 Schools that we have adopted, supporting the children through Educare initiatives is a very important facet of the Sevs. The Message ‘Education is for Life; Not for a mere living’ is what guides us as we carry out Seva related to Educare.

Our Volunteers spend time tutoring the children post school and regular motivational talks are also held for the children to get inspired. They are provided with all the School Supplies, Education fees, Education material and other support on need basis.

Our Volunteers spend a lot of time with the Parents. The child is provided with the right environment to study.
With good health and by acquiring sound knowledge, these children are sure to become ideals for all to follow.

Once there is Harmony at home, the same spreads to the Society, the Nation and the World at large. The Sociocare Seva initiatives of Sai Aashraya focuses on creating happy homes wherever we go - from the homes of our Breakfast Seva children, to the slums where we carry out Seva, to the villages we adopt in the remotest parts of India.

Sai Aashraya’s Sociocare initiatives are primarily centered around Gram Seva (Village Service) and focus on creating Self Sufficient Villages. Through ‘Sai Aashraya Village Integrated Program’ (SAVIP) initiative, we have adopted 6 remote villages and ensure the overall well-being of a village. We interact more with the people, find what the exact need is and carry out Seva accordingly. We start by carrying out Super Speciality Medicare Camps. In parallel create more awareness about Health and Lifestyle and Social issues such as Child Labour. Gradually support students with schooling. By intertwining Educare and Medicare, we seek to create happy homes.
