Updates from Sai Krushna Mandir

The children are back in Sai Krushna Mandir and it feels like the fragrance is back in the air and the place is agog with excitement. The children had a nice vacation for the Navarathri festival and they are getting back to their school schedule. The children have all fared well in their examinations. The festival of Vijayadashami was celebrated with some festivity even as the children enjoyed the special sweets and snacks prepared at Sai Krushna Mandir. There was an important trust meeting held on 27th October and it helped to focus on specific tasks to fulfill to meet the one year and three year plans of the trust in line with the long term vision of helping the underprivileged.

It has been decided to take about 18 children by November 2014, in tune with Swami’s command to increase the strength of children gradually. We are looking to absorb children in the age group of 5-8 so that they also study at the Sharavathi school getting English medium education. These children will be given free food, accommodation, education and above all a loving home until they become self-reliant. As earlier, the boys in Sai Krushna Mandir will be absorbed from the categories of:

  • children having no parent
  • children having only one parent
  • children from very poor financial backgrounds

One important requirement towards this will be to get a suitable warden for the children. The ideal profile of this person will include the following:
ü      Service minded person
ü      Age preferably less than 40 years
ü      Any experience in a similar field will be preferred
ü      Knowledge of computers/ accounts handling will be an added plus
ü      Keen interest to grow and develop one’s own personality and at the same time work towards the development of children.
We expect that this will be a challenging role with ample scope for self-development and self-fulfillment. That said, a suitable person will also be paid well according to one’s experience, qualification and other factors which will be gauged in the selection interview. Food and accommodation will also be provided. Interested people may please e-mail their CV to us at
We thank all the donors and volunteers who have been generously contributing towards daily expenses to run the children’s home, construction, setting up an RO drinking water system, solar lighting and maintenance of the building. We are also grateful to the volunteers who have devoted time to buying groceries and vegetables, spending time with the children and helping them learn and catch up with their curriculum.  
As you are all aware, Sai Krushna Charitable Trust completed 3 years on September 23, 2013. We are happy to let you know that as part of Swami’s birthday celebration, the Trust will be releasing its first Annual Report on 23rd November, 2013. 
We look forward to all your active involvement and participation in this God given opportunity. We also welcome you to come and visit the site and participate in the activities of Sai Krushna Mandir. We pray that Swami’s grace will crown our genuine intentions and He will continue to guide and bless the children and residents to live in a happy home and grow to His ideals.
