The children, mainly orphan and destitute children, attend nearby schools and are provided good and qualitative education along with a nutritious diet, clothing and accommodation, indoor and outdoor recreation and play facilities. They are provided with periodical health check-ups, medicines, books and uniforms every year. They have been brought to the main stream through care, love, affection and support.
The children stay in the hostel up to the completion of their 10th Std. Further support is provided in pursuing higher studies and seeking employment along with vocational skills, personality development and life skills education.
The children who grew up in indifferent and un-caring surroundings are now in a loving and nurturing atmosphere in Nanda Gokula thanks to the support and care given to them by volunteers. Their confidence level increases and they become good assets to the society. Their overall development is taken care of to make them productive citizens. They are inspired by philanthropy and show humanity towards the community.
It was the dream of Late Sri Nandakumar, an employee of HAL, that his house becomes a home for shelter-less children to give them a bright future. He donated his house at Nagarbavi to Rashtrotthana Parishat for this purpose. Rashtrotthana Parishat fulfilled his wishes in March 2007 by setting up a home for shelter-less boys and named the Shelter Home after him as Nandagokula in his honour.
