Crisis: Women, children, the differently abled and aged are often discriminated against because they are treated as liabilities due to social stigmas. Vidyaranya works with marginalized sections of society towards their empowerment via a holistic approach.
Programs: 1) Children- Vidyaranya operates Rainbow Homes and Open Shelters for children of marginalized groups; and residential schools for differently abled children. 2) Women-Vidyaranya runs skill development programs for women; and rehabilitation centres under the Swadhar Scheme that focuses on empowerment of women who have been victims of domestic violence or are economically weak.
3) The Aged- Vidyaranya runs old age homes providing necessary facilities for men and women who are estranged from their family or have health issues. 4) Health- Vidyaranya operated mobile health clinics to provide primary health care services to people in remote rural areas. They provide specialized health care facilities to children for prevention of substance abuse, AIDS and other chronic health disorders.
Outcome in 2018: Vidyaranya helped 100 children through their Rainbow Home and Open Shelters and 185 differently- abled children through their residential schools. They have supported 110 women through their Swadhar homes and rehabilitation schemes; and 50 men and women through their old-age homes.
