Story
Impact

Ilayaraja is from a poor family. **He lost his father when he was a child and his mother was the only earning member of their family.** She sold peanuts at a railway station. This hardly got her enough money to feed her three children every day. Since she struggled to make ends meet, education was not even an option for her kids. **She had to make the painful decision to place Ilayaraja in the care of Sevalaya.** But Sevalya proved to be a blessing for the family. **They provided Ilayaraja a safe space to learn and grow.** They gave him shelter, a caring environment and good food. They looked after his education so that he would have a chance to make more of his life. Ilayaraja was a bright student and worked hard. With Sevalaya's support, he graduated school and did a course in Computer Science. Today, he is **employed in Tata Consultancy Services.** When he visits Sevalaya, the kids there look up to him as a role model. **Sevalaya houses many kids like Ilayaraja, each with tons of potential. All they need is a helping hand to realize their dreams. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is [GIVEASSURED](https://www.giveindia.org/giveassured).**

About The Program

Sevalaya's Swami Vivekananda Boys Home and Mother Teresa Girls Home for destitute boys and girls provide shelter for orphans, poor and destitute boys and girls. Nutritious food, clothing shelter, good education and medical aid are provided to all these children. The family background of the children is verified when they are brought to Sevalaya for admission. Close to 2000 children have been provided with free education through this program. Every year 150 destitute children take shelter in the home. Food, shelter, clothing and basic education should be the right of every child. Poverty should not be a hurdle for any child to have access to basic rights. You can donate to this program and change that for a child. You can see a child like Iiiayaraja grow up to achieve his dreams.
