  • Since


The Sri Sathya Sai Orphanage Trust is an NGO guided by the profound maxim, "Service to humanity is Service to God," inspired by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sa Read morei Baba. Its overarching vision seeks a world characterized by unity, peace, spirituality, brotherhood, and altruism, ensuring the well-being of all living and non-living entities. Its unwavering mission is dedicated to easing the burdens of troubled minds and providing solace to troubled hearts through professional and complimentary services, instilling confidence and determination in those facing life's challenges. Sai Gramam serves as the hub for benevolent initiatives across Kerala, including orphanages, homes for individuals with mental challenges, and temples promoting tranquillity. These initiatives share a common foundation in Gandhian principles, striving to create self-sufficient villages. Notable projects encompass well construction, rainwater harvesting, biogas plants, solar street lamps, dairy farming, organic cultivation, cottage industries, and women's units producing incense sticks and flowers for worship. Impressively, nearly every Sai Gramam project achieves a commendable success rate of around 90%.


The Sri Sathya Sai Orphanage Trust has made a significant impact by serving over 4 Crore people with food at Sai Narayanalayam, training more than 100 individuals in Agriculture livelihood, nurturing over 1000 children at Sai Nikethan Orphanage, caring for over 750 elderly individuals, providing computer training to more than 200 people in the Attapady Tribal area, offering a home to more than 100 mentally challenged individuals, delivering free treatment to over 10,000 people through their AYUSH wellness centre, empowering over 1000 women with free tailoring training, ensuring safe drinking water for 41 schools in Attapady, educating more than 1000 children in their school, providing 252 houses for the homeless, and successfully completing 900 episodes of Sathyam Shivam Sundaram.


  • Saketham Programme


    Within Kerala, there exists the Old Age Home For Men, a sanctuary exclusively dedicated to senior citizens who have been abandoned by their own families. This region faces the unfortunate challenge of witnessing an ever-increasing number of elderly individuals left in dire need of care and assistance, often without familial support. In such trying circumstances, Saketham emerges as a beacon of hope, extending its compassionate arms to provide solace to these ageing souls, easing the burden of their profound loneliness and the heartache of abandonment.

  • Sayoojyam -Old Age Home For Women


    Within the serene confines of Sai Gramam lies a haven of contentment for elderly women known as Sayoojyam. Here, many aged women find joy in their daily lives. Some of these mothers, now enjoying the comforts of Sayoojyam, once endured the hardships of homelessness. In the twilight of their years, they revel in the rediscovery of happiness within Sayoojyam's embrace. Mothers with remarkable artistic talents take pleasure in showcasing their vocational skills, tailored to their physical abilities. Sayoojyam received its formal inauguration by the renowned playback singer, Sri. S.P. Balasubrahmanyam and similar units are also operational in the Kottayam district of Kerala.

  • Hightech Agro Farm


    Sai Gramam boasts a state-of-the-art Agro Farm, occupying an expansive 5000 square feet area, meticulously dedicated to the cultivation of vegetables through advanced agricultural techniques. This high-tech farming effort ensures a bountiful harvest, effectively fulfilling Sai Gramam's daily vegetable requirements with the produce cultivated on-site.

  • Santhwanam - Home For The Mentally Challenged


    At Sai Gramam, there is a dedicated residence known as Santhwanam, specifically designed to house differently abled boys. Presently, it shelters 12 young boys, providing them with tailored training that suits their individual abilities. Upon successful completion of their training, these individuals are not left uncertain about their future; instead, they are integrated as assistants in various ongoing projects at Sai Gramam. The management of Santhwanam is overseen by two capable wardens, responsible for its operations and other related activities. This commendable effort in effectively rehabilitating these boys has garnered widespread recognition, even prompting the State Government to request Sai Gramam to accommodate more such individuals.

  • Health Care Programmes


    Sai Gramam's healthcare services include a Palliative Care Unit, providing free medical care such as consultations, medications, and ongoing support for financially disadvantaged residents in the vicinity. The Sai Care Home in Venjarammoodu, Thiruvananthapuram, aids individuals recovering from mental health issues. In collaboration with the Sri Sathya Sai Orphanage Trust - Kerala, it offers rehabilitation training to patients discharged from the Mental Health Centre, ensuring their successful return to normal life. Sai Gramam also operates a crucial free ambulance service, particularly benefiting the impoverished rural population in remote areas. For those aged 45 and above with physical disabilities, Saphalyam provides long-term residence, made possible through collaboration with the District Panchayat, Thiruvananthapuram, and the Kerala State Handicapped Persons Welfare Corporation.

  • Sai Hastha Programme

    Within the Mudakkal Panchayat, where Sai Gramam is situated, a distinctive no-cost training initiative is available for local women. This programme equips them with skills in crafting using yarns and fibres, fostering opportunities for income generation. The vocational training encompasses various trades, including banana fibre craft, tailoring, and embroidery. Additionally, the Trust administers the Mahila Samakhya project, offering free training in these trades along with paper bag manufacturing, exclusively catering to women facing adversity. This initiative receives support from the Kerala Mahila Samakhya Society under the Women Empowerment scheme by the Government of India.
