At present, Ashanilaya houses 20 kids including ten others who visit the orphanage each week from Tamil Nadu.
On 12th September, 2015, Vamsee, Hemavathi, Libin, Manu, Deepak, Giridhar and Goutham visited Ashanilaya and were welcomed by the kids with roses. A humbling experience indeed! The welcome speech was given by one of the caretakers, post which, the kids introduced and spoke a little bit about themselves. Art, in many forms, has always been second nature to the kids, and we witnessed it this time around as well. There were song and dance performances to popular Bollywood and Tamil hits, and also a traditional Kannada folk dance. This was followed by lunch from ChicKing and ice-creams for dessert!
Ashanilaya has a few computers currently being used by college-going girls. To further nourish modernisation, we have donated 2 Samsung laptops and promised IT-related assistance as well. Founder and Director of the orphanage, Dr. John Lourdes Fernandes, thanked the company from the bottom of his heart for the continued contribution.
