$img_titleSri Vivekananda Awasam—a home for the orphaned children located at Bhainsa is providing much needed warmth and affection to them. These children, who lost their parents either in any accident, or in an unfortunate incident, longed for warmth, love and affection so that they could feel at home. And Seva Bharti is doing exactly that. By showering affection and love on them, Seva Bharti activists have made all the 18 kids staying her feel like home at the Awasam.
Bhainsa is a small but important business hub for cotton trade located in the tribal belt of Adilabad district on the Maharashtra-Andhra Pradesh border. The children are wonderful and working hard to be toppers in their respective classes. Seva Bharti has deputed a dedicated couple, whom the kids fondly call “Mataji” and “Acharya”, look after them and manage the daily scores of the hostel. A Seva Bharti committee looks after the other affairs and overall management and maintenance of the hostel.    
In 2004 summer, the children stayed with the child laborers at Seva Bharti Bridge School to have a firsthand experience of the various projects of Seva Bharti. They were spontaneous in their responses expressing their desire to rise up to help the Seva Bharti projects in their life. This innovative idea of the Seva Bharti activists made these kids more confident and understanding. To impress upon their tender minds the dignity of labor, the Seva Bharti activists arranged for these kids to stay at local carpenter and five different tradesmen to learn vocational trade. This proved to be a good and effective learning step for them.
Apart from an urge to learn vocational skills, these children have a natural flair for drawing and painting. Their collection ranges from a panoramic scene of a beautiful house amidst woods to the sketches of national leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
This Awasam for these little heroes has been in their service since September 28, 1996. Till now, five children sponsored by the local business community are studying in intermediate college at Warangal, Bodhan and NIzamabad.
Two children of this Awasam secured highest score of 491 marks in 2004 Board Examinations. That was so far the highest score in the town and surrounding area. It is the strong resolve of the volunteers of Seva Bharti to train these children in every trait of creative art and vocational skills so as to make them stand on their own as responsible individuals and contributing citizens of this great society and country.
