Karuna Voluntary Organization (KVO) was established with the objective to help the helpless rural and urban poor through various developmental activities. The founders were disturbed by the plight of deprived children who lacked access to educational and health facilities in the areas that they lived in, and KVO was formed as a response. Their vision is that of a child who has a safe and joyous childhood free from all forms of exploitation.
In 2011, the organization set up a government funded orphanage. At present, KVO has the following programmes:
KVO brings together nearly 60 out-of-school children under one roof and provides them with food, clothing and shelter. A survey is carried out at the target area to identify needy children. Once children are identified they are enrolled into the centre. The children are firstly categorized into various groups and a rehabilitation plan is worked out on a case by case basis.
A shelter home for destitute and drop out children was set up in Ranga Reddy district.
Environment Programmes: An awareness campaign on various environmental topics was conducted at the Hindustan Coca Cola company.
Cleanliness in Schools: Sensitization programmes were conducted in government schools.
