Hariksha People's Welfare Trust (HPWT) was registered in September 2006, and for the past ten years has been assisting individuals, families and communities - poor, orphan, abandoned, physically challenged, differently abled, socially deprived, diseased individuals to lead a productive life. HPWTs core activity involves upliftment of underprivileged children. HPWTs main supporters are La Famille Du Coeur- France, ABAN CARE - Chennai, Asha for Education- USA, and Give India Mumbai.

Their main activities are:


  • Children with special needs are provided breakfast and nutritious mid-day meals. Training is provided to beneficiaries to swallow semi-solid food. The malnourished children are provided supplementary health drinks and food. In FY16, HPWT spent 26% of its total expenditure on providing food and other educational aids to underprivileged children. HPWT provides primary education to children below 18 years of age for their overall development.
  • The Hariksha Play School looks after children of working parents and focuses on overall development, nourishment, physical and emotional needs of infants. Transport facilities, two sets of uniforms and slippers are provided to beneficiaries without any charge.
  • Hariksha Learning Center was set up to support Children with Special Needs (CWSN) and help them be independent by providing physical, occupational, speech and language therapies. During the year, 45 children attended the learning center and 5 new children were enrolled.


  • The Rainbow Life Children Home, funded by La Famille Du Coeur (France) shelters children who are orphaned and affected with HIV/AIDS. Training is provided in dairy farming, fodder to cows, tailoring, martial arts and yoga and major festivals are celebrated at the shelter home. In FY16, 33 children were provided shelter. All these children are attending school/colleges according to their interests.

Medical Care:

  • A team of physiotherapists, teachers and doctors visit the Children Home every weekend. Eye and dental medical camps are conducted regularly.
  • Children affected with ailments are provided medical treatment by referring them to government hospitals and private clinics. Poor children who cannot afford medical expenses are provided free or subsidised treatment and are also provided devices like calipers, crutches, special shoes, splints, wheel chairs and walkers to achieve mobility.
