Have the joy of bringing up a child by fostering a child thru Child Sponsorship.

(All about Sponsoring / Foster Parenting
Child sponsoring is the beginning of a unique relationship between you and a child, which can transform the future for both. Your support can give a needy child essentials like food, education, basic health care and immunization.

Sponsorship provides a sense of security and a sense of belonging to a child, and in return you will get the satisfaction of investing for a better India.

While guaranteeing a better future for a child through sponsorship you can also develop a bonding between the child and you by occasional visits, sending gifts and corresponding with them. This would make a world of difference for an otherwise less fortunate child.
Hundreds of children are awaiting sponsorship ...

Corporate Participation is another way thru which corporate houses can involve in supporting our various projects under Corporate Social Responsibility. 

Corporate Participation
Corporate participation through Corporate Social Responsibility widely termed as CSR basically means how companies manage the business processes to produce an overall positive impact on society. It is the continuing commitment by business houses to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large. In short “CSR is about business giving back to society”

There are a number of ways through which corporate can help the under privileged in the society. Business houses can help the less privileged children and adults at Santhi Vardhana by

  • Sponsoring Projects by contributing towards building construction, funding for the infrastructure facilities, vehicles etc.
  • Providing Matching contribution: Corporate houses can match the contributions/donations made by their employees to Santhi Vardhana

  • Payroll giving: Business organizations can help us by deducting a nominal/minimal amount from each of its employees who are in their pay roll every month and donating the same to us.

Underwriting the cost: Business houses can bear the cost of printing office stationeries for our institution thus underwriting our cost. They can also sponsor printing of our pamphlets and appeals and thus get free publicity, as these pamphlets will be reaching lakhs of people every year.

Volunteering
By volunteering their service, people can involve in our activities. You can spare your time to teach our children or to care our mentally challenged children in any of our daily activities. This would make a world of difference for them.

(Volunteering is described as a service offered or performed out of choice or free will. A volunteer is someone who gives his own time to do something useful, especially for the community. In return, he gets the satisfaction for his time and effort well-spent.

Being a Volunteer means that you are ready to take on the responsibility. At Santhi Vardhana it means 'sharing your life'. You can volunteer and spend time with the children. Receive their affection and warmth, bask in the joy of making a difference, tell those stories, share their dreams and see them as they really are: spiritually tough inside, not fragile and vulnerable as they appear.

Volunteering can be a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, gain useful experiences, develop new interests, and to be a part of the community. Believe us, it does make a meaningful impact! You may not possess great skills. What we need are people who can work with us in a committed manner and with sustainable effort.

If you think that you can support our mission and help children grow up to fulfill their dreams, please help us by make a donation.

Tips to help you start Volunteering:


  • Think about what you have to offer- enthusiasm, work skills, life skills.
  • Work out roughly how much time you can give and how many times a week or month.
  • Be committed to time and work you sign up for.
  • Talk to other volunteers who have been working for a longer time. This way you will learn from their experiences.
  • Meet us in person if you aren't clear about anything. Don't hesitate about asking questions as you go through the process of applying for an opportunity.

Just try it- often the most difficult part of volunteering is making the first move, so be brave and show that you've got drive and initiative!

For more information, please contact us.

Tell about us: by spreading the message about Santhi Vardhana Ministries to your friends and relatives and suggest them to support our cause in whatever way they can. 

Making a Will : retired people often think that they are unable to support any social cause due to limited income, but they can also help by keeping aside a tiny portion of their property for our cause, while making a will to distribute the property to your kith and kin

Surprise your dear ones: (Imagine your dear one is getting a call from Santhi Vardhana Ministries that 62 children have been fed on your dear one’s Birthday being a gift from you and they wished MANY HAPPY RETURNS and prayed for his/her well-being.

This can be done for your dear ones on Birthdays, Wedding Days or on any occasion/festivals.

By using our “Surprise your dear ones” scheme you can gift your loved ones on their birthday’s or anniversaries a fulfilling gift by sponsoring meals for our children or other residents. An instance of how this works:

Let us say, Mr Nageswrarao who lives in Kakinada wants to gift something to his grand child Ashitha who lives in USA on her birthday. Being familiar with Santhi Vardhana’s “Surprise your dear ones” scheme he contributes Rs.75000.00 towards feeding 62 children on the occasion of Ashitha’s birthday and provides us with her phone number and email id.

On 10th September we, at Santhi Vardhana will duly carryout the feeding for 62 kids and pray for the well being of Ashitha. Mr. Nageswararao, grand father of Ashitha and her mother & father came to Santhi Vardhana and celebrated her birthday. Mr Nageswararao has sponsored the meals for 62 kids that day being her birthday and that the children have relished the food and prayed for her well-being. Ashitha and her parents are overwhelmed with joy to know that her grand father has given her a unique Birthday Gift.

You too can make someone happy by THIS UNIQUE GIFT, WHICH NO ONE HAS DONE EVER TO YOUR DEAR ONES.)
