Our Gurukulam

You can only Serve-Serve the children of the Lord if you have the Privilege. If the Lord grants that you can help any one of his child blessed you are.Blessed you are that privilege was given to you when other had it not. Do it only as workship. - Swamy Vivekananda

Our Preliminary survey revealed that Chenchus lack cultural cohesion, self-confidence and Awareness. Inorder to boost up all these Qualities we conducted several events. As a first service activity in this direction we started with the chidren's education and started Bhaktha Kannappa Gurukulam (BKG) on 18th NOv 1999 and later on 14-12-2002 shifted to its own premises at Gokavaram. BKG is a residential educational programme which include Genaral Eduaction upto X class and vocational Technical Training Viz.Carpentry, Rural Electrican, Engine Mechanic e.t.c. This programme helps in developing the Leadership and Entrepreneur Qualities, become the hub of the development in their villages.

As a Second step we conducted "Awareness Camps " and " Short term Skill-development Training Programmes " to motivate them for Self development and development of their viallage. Healthcare Programmes are also being conducted in many villages. As a part of upliftment of Tribals and to bring them into the mainstream of the society, SSVVS Kendram has been orchestraing a concerted and sustained campaign.
