“Project Krushi” is an initiative by Association Saikorian (Alumni of Sainik School Korukonda).
Open hearts. Open minds. Open doors to take care for children in difficult circumstances and
Eradication of Child Labour & Upliftment of Children in Urban Slums.
Krushi Home is the flagship project of Association Saikorian. It is dedicated home with complete facilities, infrastructure and staff to house, groom and take care of 150 boy children. The children are between ages of approx 4 to 20 and are taken on rolls after a thorough screening and verification. A trained team of counselors and volunteers scout various locations, public places, Govt and private agencies where such children are often found and identify children in difficult circumstances and motivate them to join the home.
The complete antecedents and background of the child are screened and every effort is made to identify and locate the parents and family if any. The first priority is to restore the child to his home or parents. In case that is not possible the child is retained and enrolled to the home.
Each child at the home is educated upto higher secondary school level and thereafter, based on his performance and uptake, he is provided further education in vocational, technical and higher education till he becomes eligible and trained for a suitable job or occupation.
The present home, which is housed in a unique iconic structure was established in a 2.5 acres sprawling campus near Gowdavally village of Medchal mandal in 2003. The facility has spacious and hygienic living and dining spaces and conducive study halls as also all types of outdoor and indoor sports facilities, It is a fully green enabled facility powered by solar energy, having its own water recycling plant, kitchen garden with a rain water harvesting system in implementation stage.
Project Upaadhi is one such endeavor where the Association has established a vocational training center to impart job oriented skills training in the eras of welding, sheet metal work, carpentry, plumbing, electricity, tailoring etc. Necessary equipment and training material have been installed in a special facility constructed for this purpose.
At Krushi Home we have established a modern computer training lab with over 25 PCs which are extensively used by our children. We also use this facility to conduct regular courses in computer applications, IT familiarization and basic training to local boys and girls form neighboring villages. These courses are popular especially during vacation period and are fully subscribed.
